Brock Lesnar's favorite hockey team is one of the Wild's biggest rivals

Brock Lesnar's favorite hockey team is the Winnipeg Jets, not the Minnesota Wild.

Born in South Dakota before spending many years in Minnesota, Brock Lesnar now lives in Canada and has apparently adopted the Winnipeg Jets as his favorite hockey team.

Lesnar visited the Jets on Monday, taking photos with players and telling Jets TV that he's a fan of the team.

"We live in Canada now and we're not too far away from Winnipeg. My kids are Jets fans, now I'm a Jets fan, so here we are," Lesnar explained.

"He's from northern Minnesota and I'm adopted Minnesotan," Lesnar said. "We've got mutual friends so, yeah, there's just a connection there."

Some of Winnipeg's players gave Lesnar a hard time when he walked over the team logo on the locker room floor – a major hockey no-no.

Lesnar is currently suspended from the UFC for failing multiple tests for performance-enhancing drugs. He can resume fighting this summer.
