Facing off against big hitter Mark Hunt was never going to be an easy task for Lesnar, but, ‘The Beast Incarnate’ didn’t look to have missed a step in his time away from the octagon.
He controlled the fight, and dominated Hunt on the ground, whilst neutralizing Hunt’s strikes in the stand up game.
The fight will have surprised many by going the distance, as most people, myself included, expected a quick, explosive end to the bout.
In the end though, it was Brock Lesnar standing with his arm raised in victory, by way of the judges scorecards, with all three judges scoring the fight 29-27 in favor of Lesnar.
After the fight, Lesnar paid tribute to the service men and women who protect our country every day.
