Stephanie McMahon recently did an interview with Business Insider where she said WWE is “not supporting” Brock Lesnar’s upcoming fight at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt. On the UFC 200 media call, Lesnar commented on that, in which our friends at SubmissionRadio.com provided the quote:
"I really don't give a sh*t."
"This is about me living my life, being the person that I want to be. Granted, without the fans and everything, none of us would be able to do this. I get that. But I don't sit up at night wondering is my drawing power gonna be hurt or are my WWE fans gonna tune in and watch me do this. I don't give two sh*ts about that. This is about me. I want to get in there and be an athlete again. That's what this is about.”
The entire UFC 200 media call is available in the video embedded below:
Richard Reacts: WWE supports Brock Lesnar's UFC fight because they hold the exclusive rights to his services. They had to approve it before he could even negotiate it. This is just the case of quotes being clipped and egos/opinions rolling out. WWE is very much behind Lesnar fighting again for UFC.
