Brock Lesnar Vs Mark Hunt, Brock Lesnar returned at UFC 200 from a five year hiatus from mixed martial arts and earned a unanimous decision victory over former title contender Mark Hunt on Saturday night.
Lesnar announced that he was returning to the UFC just a few weeks ago and he got matched up with Hunt as part of the biggest card of the year.
Ever since he retired in 2011, Lesnar said that his exit from the UFC haunted him after a crippling bout with diverticulitis forced him to sit on the sidelines for a huge part of his career.
So he decided to return and it looks like Lesnar made a good decision after picking up a win over a top 10 heavyweight like Hunt in the co-main event at UFC 200.
Lesnar also dedicated his fight to the United States military before making a statement to the Las Vegas crowd and the millions watching around the world after a tragic few days in Dallas.
“From one white boy to all nationalities, we’ve got to stand together people,” Lesnar said before leaving the Octagon.

Whatever is next for Lesnar, it’s sure been fun having him around again. A no BS, no nonsense guy who is larger than life.- Dave Sholler (@Sholler_UFC) July 10, 2016
I don’t think that’s the last we’ve seen of Brock Lesnar. The dream of seeing him hold both the UFC & WWE championships by Mania is alive.- Chamatkar Sandhu (@SandhuMMA) July 10, 2016
