UFC 200: Brock Lesnar Has Confidence in His Striking, “I’m Not Afraid to Get Hit” by Mark Hunt
By FCF Staff
Heading into UFC 200, the consensus is that Brock Lesnar will be looking to take Mark Hunt right out of the gate, but the former heavyweight says he’s confident in his striking skills.
The pro-wrestling star recently spoke to the UFC’s Megan Olivi, and while discussing Saturday’s bout with the vaunted striker, Lesnar stated the following:
“We all know Mark Hunt’s a heavy hitter, and he’s beatable too. It’s not like the guy hasn’t been knocked out or that he hasn’t been beat. I’m sure he’s going to be looking for the big knockout, and I’ll be watching for it, and try to defend that, and I’m not scared to get hit by Mark. I’ve got confidence in my striking abilities too, so we’ll see. I don’t know where this fight’s going to end up, but I’ve went over this fight a million times in my head, and my hand’s raised.”
On Saturday, Lesnar will be fighting for the first time since 2011, when he was was stopped by Alistair Overeem. Hunt, on the other hand, fought in March and took out Frank Mir in the opening round.
