ESPN2 airing Brock Lesnar marathon on Sunday


A five-hour Brock Lesnar marathon will be part of ESPN2's schedule on Sunday (April 5).

The marathon includes four of Lesnar's UFC fights, along with his win from the 2000 NCAA Wrestling Championship. Here's the schedule for it:

  • 6 a.m. -- UFC Main Event: Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem
  • 7 a.m. -- UFC Main Event: Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin
  • 7:30 a.m. -- UFC Main Event: Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez
  • 8 a.m. -- UFC Unleashed: Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture
  • 9 a.m. -- 2000 NCAA Wrestling Championship

Lesnar's E:60 feature from 2009 will also be replayed during Sunday morning's SportsCenter, and ESPN+ has added a Lesnar UFC collection to their library.

The Lesnar marathon is in advance of WrestleMania 35 from last year airing on the main ESPN channel at 3 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday. Seth Rollins defeated Lesnar for the Universal Championship at that show.

This year's WrestleMania is airing on the WWE Network across two nights on Saturday and Sunday.

“We’re having fun and being creative,” ESPN Senior Director of Programming Brent Colborne told Sports Illustrated. “This past Sunday we did an entire day of wrestling leading into WrestleMania 32 with the 2013 NCAA Wrestling Championship and some of our best 30-for-30s, including Nature Boy. We wanted to do the same thing for this upcoming Sunday. Brock Lesnar is obviously a huge star in WWE, and within in our own existing rights with UFC and the NCAA Championships, we have the ability to do something really fun and showcase Brock as an athlete.”
