Lesnar To Face Tank Abbott Or Butterbean Now?


We have been able to confirm that preliminary talks have started with FEG regarding potential new opponents for Brock Lesnar.

Of those names, Abbott or Butterbean would have the most marquee value as a freak show fight for the U.S. PPV audience.

Abbott has verbally said he would do the fight if asked.
