Back at UFC 141, Brock Lesnar returned to the Octagon against Alistair Overeem following surgery for diverticulitis. Lesnar lost in the very first round, and subsequently retired from MMA.

During the UFC 199 broadcast, it was revealed through a UFC 200 promo that Brock Lesnar will be returning to the Octagon in the co-main event of UFC 200. While his opponent for the event wasn’t immediately given, yesterday it was revealed that Lesnar will be returning against the ‘Super Samoan’ Mark Hunt.

Lesnar joined SportsCenter to discuss his retirement in 2011, his return in 2016, and all the details about his return fight with Hunt.
