As noted, Lesnar appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Monday morning and announced that he will be fighting number eight ranked UFC heavyweight contender Mark Hunt at the landmark UFC 200 event at the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, July 9, 2016.
Embedded above is a video interview with White, who spoke with celebrity-gossip website TMZ.com about the UFC’s former biggest drawing card returning to the Octagon at what they hope will be the biggest event in the history of the company next month.
“I think it doesn’t suck, that’s what I think,” White told TMZ Sports. “According to Brock right now, his training is going great, he feels like a million bucks, so we’ll see what happens. The thing is, being away from fighting for awhile is tough to do.”
