Seems like the UFC and Lesnar are trying to cash in. Didn't Lesnar recently say the thing he's most proud of is the money in his bank account? I guess he'll now have a little more to be proud of.

I think he has always had the desire to go back for one more fight. I am sure he is getting paid quite well of course.

Isn't making money the reason to be in business? I don't see the problem.

ufc has been doing some shady stuff lately.
banning media, kicking photographers out in the middle of last event.
now bringing lesnar in vs hunt, last minute. just trying to make up for the lost ppv buys from the conner issues.

i love mma, but i decided a while back not to get a ppv for ufc ever again.

Didnt say making money is bad...

I heard someone mention White and McMahon working this out behind closed doors. UFC cashes in on Lesnar and WWE cashes in on the comeback hype a few weeks later at Summerslam. If I'm not mistaken Lesnar is under contract with WWE so they had to let him fight for UFC.

Rumor is he had this in his contract to compete for a one time fight. Its a win/win for everyone. I think WWE will hype the results of the fight in a storyline. If he loses the next wrestler he feuds with will use this as ammo in promos. I would not be surprised if they even do another "final" confrontation with him and Undertaker, who himself is a follower of MMA. Undertaker wins then retires and is carried out by hooded druids or something like that.

The problem with Brock is that he does not do well when hit. He covers up, bends over, and backs up. As such he is a great target to get his ass handed to him. Unless he learns to stand his ground move his head and move side to side while not loosing sight of his opponent when getting punched at he will fail under the pressure of guys like Alistar, Cain, ect. Hunt will probably kick him in the head when he bends over and turtles from his punches. He has potential but to late and he has some bad habits in the stand up. Hunt can take a punch as well as give one. Brocks got a big head and can take a whoopin - he took that knee from Cain pretty well - of course he was mauled as he turtled and Cain got the call.
