After getting mauled in a real mixed martial arts fight against Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 last October, former heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar was inexplicably confronted by the WWE’s “Undertaker.” For the first time since the encounter, Lesnar discussed their relationship leading up to the infamous night in Southern California.
“I was a bit delirious. Cain put me on a street that I didn’t know the name of and I was looking for my way home,” Lesnar told TheMMAHour on Monday. “I had heard that Mark [‘Undertaker’ Calloway] was gonna be there.
“I enjoyed working with Mark in the ring, but me and him, there was some things said. We have a mutual friend and that kind of really pissed me off. I overheard some things that he said about me and then I had a rebuttal to it. Our friend must have relayed the message to him and he wasn’t too happy.”
In regards to the now-infamous, ‘You wanna do it?‘ line, Lesnar claims to have no idea what the Undertaker intends on doing.
“Maybe he wanted to try to fight me. I don’t know if he was there to fight or if he was there to get some attention,” Lesnar expressed. “I think they see me having success outside of their universe [doing something] that they can’t do. There isn’t one other pro wrestler that can do and make the change like I did, so I think there’s some animosity there.
“I can always go back and be a pro wrestler, they can’t come and be an Ultimate Fighter.”
Although Lesnar admitted his beef with the Undertaker was as legitimate as they come, the 33-year-old’s sights are set squarely on his Octagon future at this point in time.
“I’m a coach on ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ I want my title back, I gotta beat Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez,” Lesnar emphatically stated. “My hands are full right now and so that’s all I’m focused on.”
Lesnar and dos Santos will battle for first dibs at Velasquez’s belt at UFC 131 on June 11th.
