At the UFC 200 Conference call today, Former UFC fighter and current WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar spoke out about the alleged steroid abuse as far as his opponent at UFC 200 Mark Hunt is concerned. Brock Lesnar had this to say:
“I’ve been dealing with that my whole life. I’m a white boy and I’m jacked. Deal with it.”
Brock Lesnar also shared his thoughts about the recent interview where Stephanie McMahon said that the WWE was not necessarily behind him to which he commented below:
“I don’t know, I don’t care what she says. Everybody is 100 percent behind this and supporting this. I’m happy and that’s all that matters.”
Whether or not a loss would affect his drawing power in the WWE and the notion that he was taking this fight for himself to which he remarked:
“I really don’t give a s–t.This isn’t about my fans. This is about me living my life, being the person that I want to be. Granted, without the fans and everything, none of us would be able to do this. I get that. But I don’t sit up at night wondering is my drawing power gonna be hurt or are my WWE fans gonna tune in and watch me do this. I don’t give two sh*ts about that. This is about me. I want to get in there and be an athlete again. That’s what this is about.”
And finally whether or not the door is open to a bunch of future fight’s in the Octagon:
“I don’t know, I feel really good. Training camp is going great. I’m happy. I’m happy with my life. I’m happy with everything. Since I left the Octagon after I got beat by Overeem and kind of forced out of the cage because of my illness it haunted me for a long time. Well what do you do? Well, here I am. And before it’s too late, I want to get back in the cage and have fun with it.
I haven’t given it much thought. Nothing’s going to change, I’m just looking forward to stepping in the cage.”
Brock Lesnar is scheduled to fight Mark Hunt in UFC 200 which takes place on July 9th 2016 at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas and Brock Lesnar is rumored to make his return to WWE Television for the WWE Draft which takes place on July 19th on the first edition of the newly announced Live Edition of WWE Smackdown going forward. So what could this mean for the Future of Brock Lesnar? While all parties involved are treating it like a one-time only thing, who knows? Once Brock Lesnar’s contract is up with the WWE he may want to scratch that competitive inch by entering the Octagon for a number of fights. It’s an exciting time to be a wrestling and MMA fan, and I for one think that the WWE will capitalize on this situation by shooting an angle at the UFC 200 event so that it leads to something special at WWE Summerslam in August, perhaps an invasion of sorts by some of the top UFC talent? One can dream and I think the WWE is crazy enough if even to give it a little bit of thought as the idea would be money.
