Brock Lesnar had an excellent UFC 200. He got to scratch his competitive itch, prove to himself that he still had what it takes to be a top-10 heavyweight in the UFC, and shut the up the haters who questioned his ability to take a punch. The two-time NCAA wrestler used his bread and butter to take Mark Hunt down repeatedly, dragging the large Samoan down and hauling him around the canvas as if he were livestock on his farm. While he didn’t get a finish, he dominated two of three rounds to the point where he took the decision 29-27, winning one round 10-8.
Afterwards, Brock was jovial during his own post-event press conference, and while he didn’t confirm that he would return to the cage, he certainly wasn’t talking like someone who was one and done.
“Let’s get one thing clear: Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do,” he said when asked if he’d speak with WWE owner Vince McMahon about another UFC fight. “My future is already laid out for the next month, I’m doing SummerSlam against Randy Orton. Once the dust settles there, I dunno what I’m going to do.
“I had a hell of a time tonight and I enjoyed myself,” Lesnar continued. “We’ll see what happens. It’s really way too soon, guys. I have no idea.”
