• It’s Been 12 Years Since Brock Lesnar Got His “Revenge” & Took A Shot At UFC’s Sponsor
UFC 100 took place 12 years ago. This pay-per-view drew 1.6 million pay-per-view buys and was the most bought UFC PPV at that time (the record was then broken at UFC 202 by Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz 2 and that record was also broken later).
This PPV was main evented by UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar facing Interim Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir. Lesnar beat Mir via TKO to become the Undisputed UFC Heavyweight Champion.
This was the second fight between Lesnar and Mir. Their first fight took place at UFC 81, which was Lesnar’s debut UFC fight (and his second MMA fight overall). Lesnar was dominating Mir and even busted him open, but the veteran Mir picked up the win after Lesnar made a rookie mistake and got caught in a kneebar submission.
Mir later went on to disrespect Lesnar and mock his past in the WWE, saying things like “this isn’t the WWE”.
Lesnar was very angry heading into UFC 100, and it was pretty visible after the fight.
After brutalizing Mir and winning the fight, Lesnar immediately got in Mir’s face and shouted “talk all the sh*t you want now, motherf***er”.
You can watch his post-fight interview below (which also shows the finish of the fight):
Lesnar also took a shot at UFC’s sponsor Bud Light in the post-fight interview, but that was edited off in the above video.
You can watch Lesnar promote Coors Light instead of Bud Light below:
During the post-PPV press conference, Lesnar apologized for this comment (as Coors Light is the rival of Bud Light).
