During the UFC 200 post-fight press conference last night in Las Vegas, WWE star Brock Lesnar was asked about his future in the UFC after his win over Mark Hunt and if fighting again was something he would need to clear with the WWE first.
Lesnar, in response, seemed to indicate that was a decision he would be making.
“Well, let’s get one thing clear. Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do. I believe that my future is already laid out for the next month. I’m doing SummerSlam against Randy Orton and once the dust settles there, I don’t know what I’m gonna do yet. I had one hell of a time tonight and I enjoyed myself (smiling). So, we’ll see what happens. I don’t know. It’s really way too soon, guys. I have no idea.”
Lesnar certainly had a successful night on Saturday. Not only was he able to overcome a top 10 ranked UFC Heavyweight fighter in Mark Hunt, Kevin Iole of Yahoo revealed that Lesnar also had a successful night financially earning a $2.5 million purse to show.
