Following his win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200, Brock Lesnar paid respect to members of the police force and armed forces everywhere.

"America. Shoutout to the men in uniform that protect and serve this country," Lesnar said in his post-fight interview. "From sea to shining sea. From one white boy, to all nationalities, we've got to stand together, people."

The country was shaken by three acts of violence during the week, the deadliest an attack on police in Dallas that left five officers dead.

The match was Lesnar's first since 2011. The former heavyweight champ was forced to leave the sport due to health reasons and return to the WWE, where he is still currently under contract.
