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 with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, The Undertaker talked about the aforementioned confrontation with Brock Lesnar. The Deadman admitted that he wanted to pick a fight with Brock Lesnar.
“I went there to pick a fight, and then you (Ariel Helwani) wanted to talk to me a little bit, and it all kind of went do.wn right there in front of you. Everything worked perfectly that night, and you wanted to grab a couple of words from me, I couldn’t have asked for anything better than that. Yeah, that was a really fun night. Probably not so much for Brock.”
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.
