"I really don't give a (expletive)", Lesnar said on today's UFC 200 media conference call.
It would not be shocking for Lesnar's plan coming into the fight to be to get Hunt to the ground and use his size and power to ground and pound him out for the victory.
"It's a milestone for the company and it's a milestone for me", Lesnar said. 'I'll make it work, ' Lesnar assured them.
This might not just be a special appearance for Brock Lesnar.
Turns out, Lesnar wasn't finished with UFC. That's when one fan yelled out, "where's Paul Heyman?"
Recently Lesnar was revealed as the cover star for publisher 2K Sports' upcoming video game, WWE 2K17. White said he has never seen Lesnar "so excited and nearly giddy" as he has been the past month, and so even though Saturday's bout is "absolutely a one-fight deal", there's no guarantee that it's the last UFC sees of Lesnar. Lesnar retains a near-mythical presence in WWE: his limited schedule means that his scarce appearances feel all the more special, and he wrestles so infrequently that every match feels important by default.
In fact, many have predicted that Hunt will knockout Lesnar in the first round itself and that he will not let the fight meander on until the fifth and final round. The two heavyweights shook hands before posting up on each other. It should also be interesting to see how much promotion the UFC does (if any at all) for SummerSlam during Saturday's event.
Win, lose or draw this won't change Hunt's world ranking, but it will change his bank balance. For most of my life I lived the warrior code, thinking I was indestructible.
Health issues plagued Lesnar's first UFC run, primarily a battle with diverticulitis. I applaud both Matt and Jeff for their creativity, their efforts and their desire to present a unique, pro wrestling bout that had a great story going in which provided viewers with significant anticipation and they then delivered a strong performance and outcome.
"When I flew in, I've been taking it all in", Lesnar said. "Before I [become] a 40-year-old man, I want to get back in the cage". "It took me a number of years to get my athleticism back and get my mind back on track".
"The New Zealand film industry is such an exciting place to be right now and the timing could not have been better".
