Brock Lesnar will be a full-time star on ESPN this Sunday

If your daily schedule these days consists of Eat, Sleep, Lesnar, Repeat, then ESPN has you covered. Their networks are airing a marathon of Lesnar material this Sunday (Apr. 5), including several UFC fights and an encore of WrestleMania 35. Here are all the details from WWE:

ESPN will air the first nationally televised encore presentation of WrestleMania 35 this Sunday, April 5, at 3 p.m. ET. Sunday’s programming lineup will also include several of Brock Lesnar’s high-profile UFC title bouts and will culminate with his 2000 NCAA Wrestling Championship victory on ESPN2. All telecasts will stream via the ESPN App.

In conjunction with the WrestleMania encore, ESPN2 will televise a five-hour Lesnar marathon on Sunday from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET. The full schedule is below:

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

In addition, ESPN+ has added a Brock Lesnar collection to its library that includes several of his classic UFC bouts: Lesnar on ESPN+.

ESPN’s “E:60” ​​feature on Brock Lesnar from 2009 will also re-air as part of Sunday morning’s “SportsCenter.”

Entering as the Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar battled Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35. The event also featured the first WrestleMania women’s main event as “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” Ronda Rousey took on Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair in a “Winner Takes All” triple threat match.

WWE legend Triple H is also slated to appear on ESPN Radio’s ”Golic & Wingo” show at 9:30 a.m. ET on Friday, April 3 to preview WrestleMania 36.

It wouldn’t really make much sense to air all of this material if Brock Lesnar already wrestled his WrestleMania 36 match against Drew McIntyre the night before on Apr. 4, so my best guess is the Beast will be in the main event match on Sunday night. But we really have no idea how it’s going to play out.

Will you be checking out any of Brock’s fights on ESPN this Sunday?
