With the PFL Challenger series going on, DAZN interviewed with the fighters there, and asked who they would want to be their tag-team partner. Sutherland was given the options of McGregor and Lesnar to choose from.

And Sutherland’s choice was not surprising, and neither was his justification behind it. He said, “That’s a tough one man. It’s got to be out of Conor McGregor or Brock Lesnar? Two ends of the spectrum but I’d have to say, me and Brock. He’s a big human. He’s a big old man, I reckon we’d do some damage.”
