The MMA promotion is going all out to make the fight between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt worth a watch by any means possible. It was during the recently held UFC 199 pay-per-view when it was announced that Brock Lesnar is heading back to the UFC. At the UFC 200 pay-per-view, he will compete against Mark Hunt. The event will take place on July 9th. WWE has clarified it as “one-off opportunity” and said the beast will be available for WWE Summerslam.
The pro-wrestling fraternity has been buzzing since the news broke out that Brock Lesnar will head back towards the Octagon after a long time since his association with WWE got renewed in the year 2012. In the case of Lesnar, he had to pass with the United States Anti-Doping Agency with their four-month clause. Since the fights in UFC ring are real, any athlete willing to fight in the Octagon must submit a written notice in the USADA four months prior to signing the contract.
In this case, Lesnar was treated as an exception since his last fight in UFC occurred in 2011 and he would be treated as a beginner. But, with his opponent Mark Hunt opposed the idea strongly, he was forced to go through the drug test this week and the results will be published on USADA’a website, next week. This was Hunt’s opinion about the issue, “I don’t think that’s fair. I think it’s load of bullsh*t, I think it’s rubbish. I don’t think anyone should be exempt from testing. If they’re trying to clean the sport up — mixed martial arts — this is a bad way to do it. I don’t care who you are. It’s ridiculous. I don’t think it’s a great move. I think he’s juiced to the gills — and I still think I’m going to knock him out. I don’t think he should be allowed to get a four-month exemption otherwise everyone else should.”
