Brock Lesnar comes from the midwestern region of the United States. He was raised in South Dakota, and went to university in Minnesota. But he will not be representing the red, white, and blue when he returns to the octagon after a long absence. When he faces off with Mark Hunt, he'll be wearing the colors of Canada.

Lesnar, who went back to the WWE after retiring from the UFC following a loss to Alistair Overeem in 2011, bought a farm in Saskatchewan a few years ago. It is now his primary residence, so he is apparently just wearing the colors of his adopted homeland on his Reebok gear.

Lesnar (5-3, 4-3 UFC) recently re-signed with the organization for a fight despite still being under contract to WWE. He was controversially granted an exemption from USADA's four-month waiting period so he could compete next month against The Super Samoan.

Their bout will serve as the co-main event at UFC 200, which goes down July 9th in Las Vegas.
