Lesnar beats Hunt for title at UFC 200

If Lesnar wants to fight in the UFC and offers to extend his contract it might behoove McMahon to work it out to keep one of his biggest attractions happy and onboard.

He doesn't feel the pressure of leading going into the final round seeking his first major, he added. Everyone else felt like mere spectators.
