Former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar recently visited the University Of Minnesota and wrestled with Gophers sophomore Gable Steveson.

Lesnar was working as an honorary coach to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his NCAA Heavyweight Title win. He wrestled for Minnesota as a junior and senior after transferring from Bismarck State College in North Dakota. Throughout his four-year career on the mat, Lesnar compiled a record of 106-5. He wrapped up his wrestling career as a two-time All-American and a 2000 NCAA Division-I heavyweight wrestling championship.

Minnesota on BTN shared a video from Lesnar and Stevenson’s training session, and Stevenson himself shared some photos from the session on Twitter. Check them out here.

While, last year, there were brief rumblings of Lesnar possibly returning to the Octagon, Dana White confirmed that “The Beast” is, in fact, retired from MMA competition now.

“He’s [Lesnar] done. He’s made his decision,” White said. “I don’t know where he is in that other world. I know that he was looking at doing a new deal with Vince to stay with the WWE. I’ve always had a good relationship with Brock. We’ve always dealt really well with each other. When you decide or don’t decide to fight, you mentally have to be ready to fight. If you’re not all in, you shouldn’t fight. He made a decision and it’s the right decision.“

Would you like to see Lesnar return to the Octagon for a fight?

Boxing lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury wants to fight everybody. Fury has talked about fights with top UFC heavyweights in MMA, his rematch with Deontay Wilder and fights with other top boxing heavyweights, and now, a fight with Brock Lesnar.

Speaking on the “True Geordie” podcast, Fury said he’d “flatten” former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar – either in the WWE or a real fight. (H/T Bloody Elbow)

“Yeah, I fancy a fight with Brock, for sure,” Fury said. “I watched a few of his fights. (He’s) pretty handy, but I can flatten him. In a WWE match or in a proper fight, I can flatten Brock Lesnar in 30 seconds.”

It would certainly be interesting to see Fury take on Lesnar in any capacity. Should he truly venture into MMA, his boxing skillset will give him a fighting chance. Of course, he’ll have to go up against some well-seasoned grapplers such as Stipe Miocic, the current champion in the UFC heavyweight division.

Lesnar himself is also known for his wrestling ability, so any chance Fury would have against Lesnar – currently retired from MMA – would have to be with keeping the fight standing. Fury appears serious about a future run in MMA, as he recently held a training session with top UFC middleweight and fellow countryman Darren Till. Till himself believes there’s a 70 percent chance Fury actually fights inside the cage.

What do you think about a potential fight between Fury and Lesnar?

A judge has ruled the final part of Mark Hunt’s lawsuit against the UFC in favor of the Las Vegas-based promotion.

Hunt filed a lawsuit against the UFC, UFC president Dana White and Brock Lesnar in January 2017 following his loss to the latter. It was later revealed that Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene as the result was overturned to a no contest.

However, the “Super Samoan” demanded Lesnar’s $2.5 million purse — which the UFC rejected — leading to the lawsuit. Hunt also alleged that the promotion conspired with Lesnar to avoid anti-doping rules which allowed him to compete at UFC 200.

In February, a judge ruled in favor of the UFC in all but one of Hunt’s claims which was a “single charge of breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing” according to MMA Junkie. And unfortunately for Hunt, even that was recently ruled in favor of the UFC by a judge at a US district court in Nevada.

The former UFC heavyweight would respond soon after with a warning for the promotion:

“I tried to make things even on the battlefield of Mma but again the cheating company @danawhite @ufc with all its billions they ripped everyone off win again someone will die against a steroid using cheater and your shit rip off company will be at fault @ufc I hope all u f*ckers burn filthy dog cunnnniesss 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 u can go and get fuuuuuaaaaaarrrkkkkeddd Uwonthisbattlebutthewarwillcontinue #aliactmotherf*ckers I am not the first to sue this rip off company and sure as hell wont be the last to sue the @ufc u can’t keep ripping fighters off and run monopoly on the market someone’s going to put u motherf*ckers down @danawhite @ufc”

Hunt last competed in a unanimous decision loss to Justin Willis in December last year. It was the final fight on his UFC contract, though he hasn’t explicitly stated if he’s retired or not.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez made his WWE debut in a losing effort at Crown Jewel.

Velasquez took on current WWE champion Brock Lesnar in what was a rematch of their heavyweight title fight that took place at UFC 121 back in October 2010.

The rematch was more of the same as it was Velasquez who dominated much of the two minute affair as he dropped Lesnar with a headkick and started landing strikes. However, Lesnar caught him with a kimura lock ultimately leading to the submission win.

He would proceed to put a beatdown on Velasquez soon after. You can see the highlights below:
