Video: Brock Lesnar is huge again, earns Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt ahead of UFC 200

What's that coming over the hill, is it a monster? Is it a monster?

No, it's Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight gorilla Brock Lesnar, who is huge again for his mixed martial arts (MMA) return against Mark Hunt, set for the UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event on Sat., July 9, 2016 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And now he's a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, to boot.

The WWE import earned his strap under two-time open weight world champion Rodrigo Comprido, which may come in handy against the "Super Samoan" next month in "Sin City." Especially since he doesn't like to get hit (says this guy) and is already a decorated wrestler.

Lesnar displayed a competent ground game during his win over Shane Carwin back in 2010, locking up an arm-triangle choke once "The Engineer" ran out his batteries. Whether or not he can replicate that performance against Hunt -- who has six of 10 losses by way of submission -- remains to be seen.
