June 6, 2016 10:27 am by Russell Ess

“The Beast” is back and coming to show the world what he is still capable of in the Octagon when he returns to the UFC at UFC 200.

Brock Lesnar appeared on ESPN on Monday morning to announce his opponent for UFC 200.

“I’ve never turned down a fight in the UFC,” Lesnar said. “Even when I was champ, I never turned down a fight. When I was fighting to be a champ, I never turned down a fight. If [UFC president] Dana White called me and said, ‘You have opponent X, Y or Z, which do you want?’ — he never gave me those options.”

Lesnar announced that he will be fighting Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and says that their strong styles make for an interesting matchup that will get the attention of fans.

“I’m a grappler at heart. [Hunt] is a heavy hitter. I think that’s what the people want to see. The UFC ultimately culminated because we’re going to put guys with opposing disciplines against each other. I think I match up very well. If Mark ends up on the ground, the fight’s over.”
