Mark Hunt loves to stand and trade once the Octagon door closes.
And that’s all Hunt is planning on doing at UFC 200 this July 9 when he welcomes Brock Lesnar back to action.
But for Hunt, this is a chance to prove himself against a former UFC champion and continue his climb back into contention all in one. And he isn’t about to let a “part time fighter” get the best of him.
“If he has an itch to scratch, I will scratch it for him,” Hunt said in an interview with his own website recently. “I ain’t no part time fighter. He things this is a game where he can come back and forth. I will send this pretender back so he can play house with the other part timers. This realm is for the real fighters, not these damn pretenders.”
Lesnar left MMA and returned to the WWE, where he will once again head back to after UFC 200.
“Don’t confuse wrestling with real fighting,” Hunt added. “I’m going to give it to him.”
