Brock Lesnar sure knows how to endear himself to the fans and use his platform for a good cause.
The uber-popular fighter defeated Mark Hunt at UFC 200 on Saturday in Las Vegas via unanimous decision. After the fight, he gave a special shoutout to the service men in the United States.
Brock also preached unity among all people.
Lesnar "one day at a time… Says, "one nation under God, all nationalities, we've got to stand together people." #UFC200

Lesnar: America, shoutout to all the men & women who protect this country. From sea to shining sea. From one white boy to all nationalities.

Lesnar’s shoutout comes days after five Dallas police officers were killed by a sniper attack while protecting those peacefully protesting. In the ensuing days there were other attacks on police officers. Prior to that, two black men were killed by police.
Though Lesnar represented Canada for his fight, the U.S. was still front and center on his mind, as were people of all races and nationalities. That’s why fans love him.
