Rising heavyweight contender Tai Tuivasa is hoping to avenge some of the losses of his mentor, heavyweight legend Mark Hunt. The Australian made his UFC debut in November last year and has quickly racked up three victories under the UFC banner. With victories over Rashad Coulter, Cyril Asker, and Andrei Arlovski already under his belt, Tuivasa now has his eyes on mixing it with the best in the UFC heavyweight division and is apparently willing to take on all comers.
Speaking to Submission Radio, Tai Tuivasa said that he wants to get some revenge for his good friend and fellow Heavyweight, Mark Hunt. Fighting Lesnar and beating him will not only help him avenge Hunt, but it will also guarantee him a massive Paycheck and will help him build his already growing profile in North America which is the primary PPV market for UFC.
Tai said, “Hell yeah. It’s a money fight. I’m in this for the money, I’m in this so my family can do good, you know what I mean? So, of course (I’d fight him). With the money, obviously who wouldn’t want to fight Brock Lesnar? And I’d love to get one back on him for my boy (Mark Hunt).”
Meanwhile, Brock Lesnar is still in contract with WWE and there have been talks about Jon Jones wanting to fight Brock Lesnar later this year.
