Mark Hunt’s lawyers track down Brock Lesnar in Canada, serve him with UFC lawsuit

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, tired of all the gophers running around his previous compound in Minnesota, closed up shop and relocated to Saskatchewan, Canada, a few years back.

A surprising move in the wake of its third-world healthcare system.

But hiding out in the great white boy north didn’t keep Lesnar from getting served by Mark Hunt’s attorneys, who racked up a few thousand frequent flyer miles to include the WWE attraction in the “Super Samoan’s” recent lawsuit.

He’s a served white boy, deal with it.

Hunt filed a lawsuit against both the promotion and its president, Dana White, after learning that Lesnar — along with his two opponents prior to UFC 200 — were using performance-enhancing drugs.

Though not everyone is feeling overly-sympathetic.

UFC and its “powerhouse legal team” filed a motion to dismiss earlier this month, which in turn prompted a motion to dismiss the dismissal by Team Hunt, which sounds as convoluted as it is. Expect this legal matter to drag on for quite some time (is normal).

Meanwhile, the show must go on.
