Brock Lesnar is set to come back for a return fight in the Octagon at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt.
Lesnar has been busy wrestling for the WWE and has not fought in the UFC since losing to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 back in 2011 but is set to prove to himself and the world that he is still more than capable of competing with top UFC competition.
When asked what he thinks brought UFC Dana White to bring him back for one fight, Lesnar said it all comes down to one thing.
“Big business. At the end of the day, I’m a prizefighter. And, I don’t fight… listen, titles don’t pay the bills. What pays the bills, I’m a prizefighter, I fight for money. And it’s no different, they are making money, I’m making money, everybody is making money. That’s what this is all about. More importantly, it’s not about the money to me. I have always said money is very important to me, but you can’t step inside the Octagon just for the money. This is in my heart. This is from the heart and it just so happens that I’m making a boatload of money.”
Lensar is asked by ESPN’s Hanna Storm how much money he is making for his fight with Hunt at UFC 200.
“I can’t disclose, but there are lots of zeros behind it. I can’t disclose that, why would I want to? I am not here to brag about that. I am here to state that I’m a prize fighter and everybody is making money. At the end of the day, this is going to be an exciting show for me, I’m honored to be a part of it and it’s humbling to sit here and actually announce to the world. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders because I’ve been carrying this around. It’s for real.”
