As noted, Brock Lesnar made the media rounds on ESPN yesterday to promote his upcoming fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200. During an interview on ESPN's SportsCenter, which you can watch above, Lesnar was asked about how Vince McMahon reacted when approached about the upcoming fight.
"I said, 'Listen, old man, we can do this the hard way or the easy way,'" Lesnar recalled. "I said, 'Do you wanna arm-wrestle for it?' He was like, 'Aw yeah, what the hell.' So, I ended up beating him and here we are."
Lesnar said that McMahon had no hesitation allowing Lesnar to do the fight.
"Who would you [have any hesitation]?," Lesnar asked. "I believe that in the WWE brand, I'm a legit athlete in that brand, and I bring lots to the company. For me to get back in the Octagon legitimizes why the WWE has me in their company. It's a win-win for all of us. It's a win for me, it's a win for WWE and it's a win for the UFC."
Lesnar again wouldn't reveal how much he is making for the fight, but said that it was "lots of money" and stated that he was a prizefighter.
"You don't get in the cage for nothing," Lesnar noted. "It's a lot of money... I'm not gonna relay how much money I'm making on it, I wouldn't do that to either one of the companies."
