JDS “impressed” by Lesnar returning against Hunt

“I like this matchup. We know that charisma and marketing skills carry weight in the UFC, so when I saw that Lesnar was coming back and that his opponent hadn’t been chosen yet, I thought they might pick someone he could beat more easily. But I was impressed with the Mark Hunt choice. He is a very tough guy who can make his return complicated… I think Lesnar will obviously try to get close and take him down and take the fight where hes strongest. He is very fast on the ground for his size. But Hunt is a very tough guy, with super heavy hands. It’s a dangerous fight for both, but I see more danger for Lesnar. Hunt is not just a skilled fighter; he knows how to knock people out. He’s got that timing. So when you fight a guy like him you have to be very careful because you can get knocked out at any minute.”

-Junior dos Santos, who was supposed to fight Brock Lesnar after The Ultimate Fighter 13, comments on Lesnar’s return against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in an interview with MMAJunkie.com.
