Below is video from the UFC 200 pre-fight press conference earlier today in Las Vegas.
At around the 3:50 mark, Brock Lesnar talks about jiu-jitsu and was asked if he kept working on his striking and other abilities when he left UFC for WWE. Lesnar said when he left the sport, he still loved it, and it’s always been a part of him. He talked about working with various coaches over the years and said it’s not like he just called them up for this fight, he’s worked with them since he left.
At around the 8:00 mark, Lesnar is asked about his health and just says he feels “f–king awesome” so why do the details matter. Lesnar brushed off another question on his health and said the situation is behind him, he feels great now. That’s when one fan yelled out, “where’s Paul Heyman?”
At the 13:50 mark, Lesnar was asked about his relationship with WWE boss Vince McMahon and if Vince will allow him to fight again after this, if he wins. Lesnar said that’s a question for Vince, not him, but he wants to get through Saturday and see what happens.
Lesnar is asked his memories of UFC 100 and how much the sport had grown since then at the 18:00 mark. Lesnar says a lot of the credit goes to the fighters and he knows Dana White would agree. Lesnar gave props to Dana as a promoter but said UFC would be nothing without the fighters.
Lesnar’s face-off with Hunt comes at the 35:00 mark. The two heavyweights shook hands before posting up on each other.
