Brock Lesnar in the UFC

UFC President Dana White has stated that Brock Lesnar has signed a two-year contract with the company.

White also said the current plan is for Lesnar to have his first fight at UFC 81 on February 2nd. There is still no word on who his first opponent will be.

A press released issued by UFC shortly after the big announcement had the following quotes from Lesnar:

"Obviously I don't think I'm ready for a title shot right away, but I will be there, and I'm not gonna turn down any opponent because I'm here to prove myself. I'm not here to pick and choose my fights. I'll fight whomever they want. I don't make the fights; that's not my job. I've got one job to do and that's to fight."
