“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.”
Lesnar also commented how Vince knows that a happy Brock Lesnar is easier to work with.
Regarding the fight against Hunt, Lesnar acknowledged that Hunt is known as a heavy-hitter but said he’s beatable.
