Fight fans around the world were stunned when Brock Lesnar was announced for the UFC 200 pay-per-view later this month.
Lesnar, who hasn't had a fight since 2011 following a battle with diverticulitis as well as signing a contract with Vince McMahon and the WWE, will be squaring up against Mark Hunt inside the octagon at the event in Las Vegas later this weekend.
Ever since the fight was announced, questions have dogged Lesnar about potential steroid use as well as the effect this could have on his career in the WWE. However, the former UFC heavyweight champion just doesn't care.

No Cares Given
Yesterday, Stephanie McMahon said that the WWE aren't actually supporting the fight against Hunt, despite the amount of attention it would undoubtedly bring the promotion. Lesnar replied in typical Lesnar style.
"I don't know," he stated, via Wrestling Inc. "I don't care what she says."
When asked if he was worried that a loss to Hunt would affect his drawing power in the WWE, and the hold he has over them with his contract negotiations and the dates he works, Lesnar was equally subtle with his word choice.
"I really don't give a sh*t."
Stephanie previously spoke about the WWE's superiority to the UFC in the way they can create a star, saying that losses in the WWE hurt a lot less than they do in UFC.
To be honest, she has a very good point. Just look at the recent losses suffered by Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey. McGregor was humiliated by fans after tapping out to Diaz, while Rousey has also received abuse following the KO loss to Holly Holm. You cannot say that their star status is lower now than before those fights.
If Brock Lesnar was to lose to Mark Hunt, he will probably never step back in an octagon, but his reputation in WWE will be fine. As we all know, however, he doesn't really give a sh*t.
