The Undertaker is a true legend in the world of professional wrestling, having dedicated over three decades of his life to the sport and sacrificing his body for the entertainment of fans around the world. His achievements and contributions to wrestling are truly remarkable, and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest performers in the history of the sport. He also once showed up to a UFC event to face Brock Lesnar and it seems he legitimately wanted to pick a fight with the Beast Incarnate.

UFC 121, which took place in 2010, turned out to be a memorable event not just for mixed martial arts fans, but also for pro wrestling enthusiasts. The reason was that The Undertaker was present at the event, but he wasn’t there merely as a spectator.

In an infamous confrontation that took place after the event, The Undertaker confronted UFC fighter Brock Lesnar, who had previously competed in WWE. This incident surprised both MMA and pro wrestling fans alike, as it was unexpected and created a buzz in both worlds.

While speaking on Hawk vs. Wolf, The Undertaker talked about his infamous confrontation with Lesnar. The Deadman revealed that he was “strictly there to pick a fight” with Brock Lesnar. While WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, Lesnar, and The Undertaker were aware of the planned confrontation, UFC President Dana White was not informed of the same.


During an interview with Ariel Helwani at UFC 121, The Undertaker saw Brock Lesnar walk past them after his fight and the two men briefly glared at each other. The Undertaker then asked Lesnar, “You wanna do it?” which confused fans who speculated whether the confrontation was planned or spontaneous.

“Unbeknownst to Vince or myself, Dana had no clue what was going on,” Undertaker said. “We weren’t aware of the fact that Dana did not know that I was going to do that. He was not happy. Some guy from the WWE is challenging his biggest draw, but we thought he was on board with it.” 

The Undertaker had expressed his desire to instigate a fight in WWE, which he believed could have resulted in a win-win situation for all parties involved. However, Brock Lesnar did not return to WWE until two years later, and it wasn’t until another two years after that when Lesnar and Undertaker would finally reignite their feud at WrestleMania 30. Undertaker acknowledged that they had rushed things a bit in terms of timing, and it was evident that the details of the confrontation were not thoroughly planned out. This incident remains one of the most peculiar public relations stunts in WWE history.
