Brock Lesnar WILL Compete on UFC 200

The UFC officially announced during the UFC 199 broadcast on Saturday night that Lesnar is returning to fight at UFC 200 on July 9 against an as-of-yet undetermined opponent. Lesnar was a surprise tag on the end of a brand new (and excellent) UFC 200 promo, and the official graphic for the card had listed “Brock Lesnar vs. TBD.”

Lesnar, a former Heavyweight Champion in the UFC, hasn’t fought since a first round loss to Alistair Overeem back in December of 2011. He’s spent the last four years back in the WWE, and decided to re-sign with the WWE last year prior to Wrestlemania 31. Now, he’s coming back for at least one more fight after his career was somewhat cut short due diverticulitis.
