Video: Mark Hunt says he couldn't get out of first gear against 'big and strong' Brock Lesnar at UFC 200

"No, there were no injuries, I just got caught. I couldn't get out of first gear. He was the bigger man and he caught me and props to him. I just couldn't I couldn't get him, man. He is just such a big guy. I just got caught, couldn't get out of first gear, he's such a big guy, thought I'd be able to stop his takedowns. But he is quite strong, I don't know how he can make 265 pounds -- it's all I can say."

-- Brock Lesnar returned to the Octagon in a huge way last night (Sat., July 9, 2016) at UFC 200 in Las Vegas, Nevada, dominating Mark Hunt for 15 minutes to earn a unanimous decision win. And he did it by using his physical attributes to out-power Hunt (see it), something that that hulking Heavyweight knew he had to do going into the bout. But as Hunt told Submission Radio after the loss, he didn't realize just how big Brock really was until he had him on top of him. And Lesnar's size and weight was a big reason he simply couldn't' get out of first gear, eventually leading to a subpar performance and a loss.
