Brock Lesnar: I have nothing to prove at UFC 200 because I'm a 'one in a million' athlete

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

He's no Bo Jackson, apparently, but Brock Lesnar is a "one in a million" athlete.

That's according to "The Beast Incarnate" himself, who declared on The Heyman Hustle that he deserves that praise because he can do things that very few can, like be the biggest name in professional wrestling -- then go on to smash heads on the biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) stage of them all

His words (via FOX Sports):

"I don't think I have anything to prove at all. I've been an athlete, I've accomplished a lot of great things. A lot of great things. I feel very fortunate that I'm 38 years old, I work for the WWE, and I can step foot back into the Octagon again for the UFC. How many people can do that? I'm one in a million. How many people can pull it off? One in a million and you're looking at him."

Of course, if CM Punk ever makes his official UFC debut, then Brock will be two in a million.

Lesnar is set to make his official return to the eight-walled cage as he gears up to face Mark Hunt in the co-main event of UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV), which is set to blow the roof off T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 9, 2016 (details here).

After that, Brock is expected to resume his WWE career full time, as he is slated to headline SummerSlam 2016 in New York.

And he may even bring this UFC star along with him.
