Brock Lesnar recently spoke with the UFC’s Megan Olivi about this Saturday’s fight with Mark Hunt at UFC 200. You can see the video below.
Lesnar said that he appreciated Vince McMahon signing off on the fight and that he thinks McMahon had more respect for him after he left WWE.
When asked about what his conversation with Vince McMahon was like about returning to the Octagon, Lesnar said, “The devil’s in the details in the language; it’s not complicated when you have the right people who understand your contracts and understand your life. That really boils down to it. Vince giving me the nod to be able to do this, I have great respect for the man and I think he has a greater respect for Brock Lesnar after I walked out in 2004 and went on to become UFC heavyweight champion. We’re both older and more mature, and it’s water under the bridge and I think he knows that a happy Brock Lesnar is easier to work with than a Brock Lesnar who’s not.”
