Brock Lesnar's Opponent Revealed For UFC 200

Brock Lesnar will make a one-off return to the Octagon at UFC 200 and his opponent will be Mark Hunt. Lesnar conducted an interview on ESPN today and revealed the former kickboxer will be his opponent. It will be Lesnar's first MMA fight since December of 2011.

Lesnar also reflected on retiring from MMA back in March of 2015.

"It was the hardest decision for me to make," Lesnar told ESPN's Hannah Storm. "That decision has haunted me for the last 15 months. I figured I couldn't live like that for the rest of my life. I'm a big believer in living out your dreams and facing your fears."

Hunt's MMA record is 12-10-1 and he is on a two fight winning streak.

Lesnar's return to the UFC was announced Saturday night at UFC 199. UFC 200 takes place on Saturday, July 9th in Las Vegas.

"I feel 1,000 percent," Lesnar said. "The only thing I second-guess is my decision is to step away from the Octagon."
