UFC and New Zealand heavyweight Mark Hunt has admitted his "a** got beat" by Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 on Sunday.

The 42-year-old has remained humble in defeat, saying he has "nothing but respect" for Lesnar after the fight.

"Big Brock got my a** beat, couldn't get out of first gear, part of fighting winning and losing the old warhorse is still going," he said in a Facebook post.

Despite the loss, which takes Hunt's record to 12 wins, 11 losses and one draw, he remained upbeat and positive.

"To all the fans don't be salty, life goes on and on and on," he said.
