Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion will be bringing a big following over from the WWE with fans looking to see if “The Beast” still has what it takes to compete with a high level mixed martial artist on July 9.
When asked about his thoughts on if his performance against Mark Hunt will have any effect on his drawing power in the WWE, Lesnar put answered bluntly, “I really don’t give a sh*t.”
Lesnar went on to say that this is a personal challenge for himself and isn’t letting his fanbase dictate his career choices.
“This isn’t about my fans,” said Lesnar (transcribed by MMA Fighting). “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.”
