WWE will continue its hostile takeover of ESPN as a Brock Lesnar marathon will air this Sunday.
ESPN is set to air it on Sunday morning and will be a five-hour slate of programming that kicks off at 6 a.m. ET. It will feature four of his most memorable UFC fights, as well as concludes with Lesnar’s 2000 NCAA Wrestling Championship.
It’ll include his fight against Alistair Overeem in 2011, winning the UFC heavyweight title from Randy Couture in 2008 in addition to his title defense from 2010 against Shane Carwin and losing the strap that same year to Cain Velasquez.
ESPN has already confirmed that it will air an encore presentation of WrestleMania 35 at 3 p.m. ahead of the second night of WrestleMania 36 that begins on the WWE Network.
