As if you weren’t already hyped for UFC 200 next Saturday, July 9, the war of words between Mark Hunt and Brock Lesnar should add the necessary spark.
After Hunt accused his opponent at the event of being “juiced to the grills—and I still think I’m going to knock him out” last month, Lesnar replied to both his upcoming competition and people who, in general, think the former UFC heavyweight champ is juicing.
“I’ve been dealing with that my entire life,” he said. “I’m a white boy and I’m jacked — deal with it. What do you want me to say? I’m a white boy and I’m jacked. Deal with it.”
And as for all that other noise being thrown towards Lesnar on social media and such, well, keep chirping, guys, because the dude doesn’t even hear it.
“I haven’t followed much of anything,” Lesnar said. “I never have. I don’t have a Twitter account. I don’t have Facebook. It is what it is. To me, it’s all BS.”
According to reports, Lesnar has been tested five times since entering into the UFC’s random drug program, so there’s a pretty good chance that what he’s saying is accurate. One thing’s for sure, UFC 200 can’t get here soon enough.
