The pro-wrestling fraternity has shaken after the huge announcement of Brock Lesnar returning to UFC was made. Lesnar is scheduled to fight in the Octagon on July 9th against Mark Hunt in Las Vegas. Though WWE has already clarified that it will be “one-off” opportunity for the beast and he will be available for WWE Summerslam, the rumor mill suggests it may be for a long term stint that Lesnar is heading to UFC. He has not been advertised for the upcoming WWE live events and his opponent at Summerslam is yet to be found.
Meanwhile in the latest episode of his advocate Paul Heyman’s podcast, ‘Heyman Hustle’ saw Brock Lesnar as a guest where he discussed his return to the UFC. Lesnar believes that he has nothing to prove to anybody else and he is returning to the Octagon for himself and not for the people. Here’re his quotes:
“I don’t think I have anything to prove at all. I’ve been an athlete. I’ve accomplished a lot of great things. A lot of great things. I feel very fortunate that I’m 38 years old, I work for the WWE and I can step foot back into the Octagon again for the UFC.”
“How many people can do that? I’m one in a million. How many people can pull it off? One in a million. And you’re looking at him.”
Lesnar proudly declared, “If by chance, two million people want to tune in for me to enjoy myself on July 9, so be it. That’s great. That’d be really good and I appreciate that, but I’m not gonna change . This is all about me. I’m sorry. This is all about me. And why should it be about anybody else?”
Judging by the saying Brock Lesnar acted very much of his persona played in the WWE as he went on to add “I’m not doing this for fans. If there are fans that are excited that I am getting back in the Octagon, great. But I’m not doing it for them. I’m doing this for me. This is for me.”
“Do I feel better than I ever felt before? I can’t say that. I can’t say that. I don’t remember what I (felt like before). I know what feeling like s*** feels like. I don’t feel that way. So, I’m very excited.”
