WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted the following on his official blog regarding Brock Lesnar facing Mark Hunt at July's UFC 200 event:
"It’s a brilliant promotional move for UFC to help make this, their biggest ever PPV, extra special. Lesnar feels like the final piece of the puzzle that was needed to make this a legit, ‘must see’ show. A terrific event just got bigger. That’s a great thing for a promoter and all fans."
"I’m concerned about Brock’s striking defense against the heavy hands of Mark Hunt. Will Brock react to getting hit in a more positive manner than the last time many saw him in the Octagon? Hunt has KO power in abundance. Love this one, ‘Brock doesn’t like to get Hit.’ Who in the hell does? Can Brock utilize his wrestling skills and take Hunt down and move the fight to a non vertical place? Hunt has improved his take down defense and will do all he can to keep the fight upright and likely will attempt to end it early."
