Tai Tuivasa Says He’d Love To Get Revenge For Mark Hunt By Beating Brock Lesnar And Alistair Overeem
Tai Tuivasa has been making waves in the UFC heavyweight division and appears to have his eyes on fights with the biggest stars in the division.
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.
Tuivasa is even willing to take on Brock Lesnar, a man who was last seen in the UFC Octagon at UFC 200 when he defeated Tuivasa’s friend, Mark Hunt. Lesnar later tested positive by the USADA anti-doping program and there’s been no shortage of ill-feeling from the Hunt camp ever since.
Speaking to Submission Radio this week, Tuivasa explained he’d be more than happy to stand across from Lesnar in the UFC Octagon.
“Hell yeah. It’s a money fight,” Tuivasa said. “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).”
“There’s all them boys that I want to get some payback for. Overeem, all those boys. I was there in the corner (when Overeem knocked Mark Hunt out), so I think of that as well.”
Lesnar’s previous PED doesn’t appear to be an issue for the Australian. According to him at least, as long as he gets paid the big money, he’s willing to take the fight with him.
“Everyone knows he’s fucken on the juice. That’s not (a secret),” Tuivasa said.
“You can ask a 10 year old kid and they’ll probably tell you that. It’s obvious.
“He’s probably one of the biggest humans I’ve ever seen in real life. He’s huge. But that doesn’t mean… if I’m gonna get paid and I’ll fight him.”
