Brock Lesnar's next move
By Edward Carbajal
When it was announced almost a month before UFC 200 Brock Lesnar would be back in the UFC and facing Mark Hunt it came with reports that it was a one fight deal. When asked of his future in MMA before the fight , his answers were speculation at best. He hinted at it depending on his performance at UFC 200.
Now, he fought and won and the question was asked again. Joe Rogan asked it in the cage and his response was, "One day at a time man.” All week he seemed uncertain but the only certainty he had about his future in MMA was his wrestling ability. Lesnar had a separate press conference from the rest of the card where he said his wrestling is unstoppable in his division, even against those who beat him. One of the men that beat him also fought on the same card, Cain Velasquez.
Not only did Velasquez seem like the man we knew before the injuries, but he had some new tricks for fans and future opponents to keep in mind. Lesnar may want to watch that fight while contemplating his future in MMA.
