If you’ve been anxiously waiting to hear who Brock Lesnar will face at UFC 200, well, the wait is over.

On Monday morning, the former heavyweight champ revealed on ESPN’s SportsCenter that he’s fighting Mark Hunt at the upcoming event. Interested?

The news comes just days after the UFC announced on Saturday that Lesnar is returning to the Octagon, July 9th. Lesnar (5-3) walked away from MMA in 2011 after he taken out by Alistair Overeem. Last year, the pro-wrestling star considered returning to fighting, but Lesnar elected to resign with the WWE.

The powerful wrestler remains under contract with the pro-wrestling company, and is expected to compete at a WWE event in August.

Hunt (12-10-1) is coming off consecutive, stoppage wins over “Bigfoot” Silva and Frank Mir.

So how huge is UFC 200 going to be now that Lesnar is fighting one of the UFC’s top heavyweights? The upcoming card will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
