Brock Lesnar to be special guest at 'Extreme Beatdown'

UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will appear at "Extreme Beatdown" on April 11 at the Apache Gold Casino near San Carlos, Arizona.

In attendance as a special guest, Lesnar will make himself available to fans for autographs and pictures.

Lesnar is attending the event in support of training partner Chris Tuchscherer (16-1), who will be taking on an opponent to be announced. Tuchscherer is a former two-time NCAA Division II All-American wrestler training out of the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy. Tuscherer one year ago was the runner-up in UFC co-founder Bob Meyrowitz's YAMMA heavyweight tournament. Last month, he won the SNMMA heavyweight belt against UFC veteran Branden Lee Hinkle.

Lesnar is slated to rematch interim champ Frank Mir at UFC 100 on July 11 in Las Vegas to crown an undisputed UFC heavyweight champion.
