Brock Lesnar Talks UFC 200 Victory, What's Next, Being A Bully, Having The Most Fun “In A Long Time”

As seen in the video above, Brock Lesnar discussed his unanimous decision victory over Mark Hunt at the UFC 200 post-fight press conference. Below are some highlights:

* Lesnar wanted to make one thing clear, and that’s “Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do.” He said that his future for the next month is laid out with his match against Randy Orton at SummerSlam. After that, Lesnar said that he doesn’t know what he’s going to do, but he had “one hell of a time tonight.”

* He wasn’t sure if Mark Hunt landed his best shots or not, but the mystery’s gone as to whether he could take a punch. He noted that he returned on somewhat short notice after a 5-year absence and thanked his team for making it possible. He said that Hunt “never knocked the f-ck” out of him and “here I am.”

* Lesnar admitted that he had a lot of nerves heading into the fight, but that you have to keep an open mind. He said that MMA is 90% mental and if you put the work in, good things will happen. He said that he hadn’t had that much fun “in a long time.”

* Lesnar said that he liked being a bully – not necessarily picking on anyone – but getting dirty and not turning down fights. He said his mom would chew his ass and said that if he’s going to fight, he might as well earn some money at it. Lesnar said that when he decided to make his comeback, it was a tough decision, but “if you don’t stick your neck out, you’re never going to get ahead” and he’s not scared to stick his neck out.

Brock Lesnar Victorious In His UFC Return, WWE Reacts

Brock Lesnar returned to MMA tonight at UFC 200 and made his mark by dominating a top 10 UFC heavyweight.

Lesnar, who last found at UFC 141 on December 30, 2011, managed to utilize his game and defeat Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. Lesnar dominate the first and third rounds, while Hunt took the second. Lesnar won the fight with scores of 29-27. With the victory, Lesnar’s MMA record improves to 6-3 while Hunt falls to 12-11-1.

After the fight, Lesnar admitted that it took a little while to get acclimated in the cage. As for what’s next, Lesnar said that he’s taking it “one day at a time” before thanking the great men and women in uniform. Lesnar then said, “from one white boy to all nationalities, we’ve got to stand together, people!”

Lesnar’s wife Rena, f.k.a. Sable, then entered the cage to celebrate with Brock.

WWE quickly responded to Brock’s win with this tweet:

BREAKING NEWS: @BrockLesnar wins at #UFC200, https://t.co/8PEYFNfKt2 pic.twitter.com/k012tYjpc5

WWE (@WWE) July 10, 2016

Below is the playback for the fight from our UFC 200 coverage by David Bixenspan:

Heavyweight: Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt (#8)

Round 1: Patient start for both with only slight feinting. Low kick by Brock. Brock looks completely different physically from his first UFC run and is already turning red. Takedown attempt, no luck, they’re on the cage, and down. And up! Dan Miragliotta needs to call a break…right as I type that Brock gets hunt down and into side control. Hunt turns…giving up his back? Brock clearly trying to conserve energy and not unload too much…but he opens up…and Hunt gets up! Brock shoots, almost eats an uppercut, takedown to Bock mount! WrestlingInc goes 10-9 Lesnar.

Round 2: Hunt needs to jab and he does. Brock blocks an overhand right. I can’t believe this is in the second round. Hunt jab connects barely. Hunt sprawls on a shot. Here we go! AND ANOTHER! Brock doing a good job keeping Hunt from landing cleanly when he throws. Hunt stuffs another takedown. Hunt subtly pressuring now as Brock is tiring. Hunt starting to find his range in a sense, not quite landing clean. Brock shoots on the cage. Clinching. Not getting Hunt down. And the round is over. 10-9 Hunt since he’s the only one to actually land any kind of offense, 19-19 so far. Next round takes it. or a finish, of course.

Round 3: Hunt tags Brock with a right…then Brock gets a takedown to almost mount…some punches but Brock not posturing up so Hunt is defending well. Hunt not trying to buck Lesnar and Lesnar is holding a loose half guard now. Hunt actually throwing a lot from bottom and he regains half guard. Brock going for the arm triangle…or not. Back to mount. Lots of short, hard shorts. You realize how heavy Brock is on top when you consider Hunt’s propensity to buck guys off well. Hunt finally gets to half guard and tries a getup, but there’s no time. 10-8 Lesnar, 29-27 Lesnar. Clear decision win for him, question is how exactly the judges score the third and to an extent the second.

Official decision: Brock Lesnar defeats Mark Hunt by unanimous decision (29-27 on all three cards).

Brock looks even redder than he does in PPV matches. Brock gives a shout out to American military. “From one white boy, to all nationalities, we all gotta stand together, people!” That was new. And now he’s kissing his wife, who Mike Goldberg just called “Sable” and not Rena or even “the former Sable in WWE.”

Noelle Foley Reveals Which WWE Star She Had A Crush On; Talks Parents Wanting Her To Be Gay, More

Source: Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast

Recently on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast, Mick and Noelle Foley were on the podcast to discuss their new WWE Network show, Holy Foley. Among other things, Noelle talked about having a crush on Randy Orton when she was younger, how she got involved with her current boyfriend, Frank the Clown, and her parents wanting her to be gay.

On the subject of Randy Orton, Noelle said that she had a crush on ‘The Viper’ when she was in high school and she told a funny story about finding out that Orton smells “fruity”.

“We were backstage, probably five years ago and Randy Orton drops his shirt. And I’m like, ‘dad, Randy [has] just dropped his shirt’ and he calls back. He’s like, ‘Randy, you dropped your shirt’ and Randy’s like, ‘oh, you can have it’, like pointing to me. First thing I do is smell the shirt because that’s me. And it was fruity! Randy Orton smells fruity.”

According to Noelle, she became interested in her current boyfriend, WWE superfan, Frank the Clown, after seeing him at WWE SummerSlam three years ago.

“I just saw him from far away and was pretty much checking him out. Like, I was the creeper in this situation. I don’t know. I just stopped and stared at him. Like, ‘wow, he’s different and weird – I like that!'” Noelle added, “I guess his weirdness attracted me. And so, like, two or three weeks later, I saw him, like, in the front row at RAW, and I tweeted him.”

The self-anointed ‘Cactus Jill’ claimed that other men do not really catch her eye.

“Well, here’s the thing: I haven’t found any other guy I even liked. Like, I don’t really like guys all that much because I feel like it’s the same thing, like, ‘oh, look at me,'” Noelle admitted. “I feel like if I wasn’t dating Frank, I wouldn’t be dating anyone. Like, no one catches my eye. Like, oh sure, you can be attractive and muscular. That’s great for you, but if you don’t have a personality, why would I like you?”

Noelle Foley's Boyfriend Pens Open Letter Blasting Current State Of WWE

Noelle asserted that her parents have always wanted her to be gay.

“[Mick Foley] wants me to have a relationship with someone that’s not Frank,” Noelle continued, “my dad and my mom have always wanted me to be gay. Always. From the beginning.”
