Brock Lesnar is returning to mixed martial arts to fight in UFC 200 one month from today. Accordingly, Lesnar has appeared on a number of media outlets to promote the fight. on Thursday, he stopped by ESPN's Highly Questionable and shared a hilarious story when Papi asked him, "What's the most romantic thing you have ever done for your wife?"

The story starts at the 6:30 mark.

We loved talking to an incredibly honest @BrockLesnar about bar fights, overcoming addiction, and his romantic side

Lesnar took his wife on a tropical vacation and told her to leave her ring at home because he didn't want it to get stolen. When they returned, per Lesnar's request (he had plans to give her a new ring for their five-year anniversary), the people who were watching their 1-year-old son said he had swallowed it. They even had a fake X-ray as evidence.

"My poor wife took it upon herself—I shouldn't even tell this story—to search for the wedding ring in dirty diapers," Lesnar said. "It's so not romantic, but it's funny, right? For two days, my wife searched high and low for her wedding ring."

Two days later, they renewed their vows, and Lesnar gave the new ring to his wife. But she searched for two days! How do you let your wife search through dirty diapers for two days?

The hosts of Highly Questionable, Dan LeBatard and Bomani Jones, are excellent at getting stories from their guests. You might recall their interview with Fat Joe last month, in which the rapper said Biggie was referencing Anthony Mason on "I Got a Story to Tell."

Lesnar will face Mark Hunt in the co-main event at UFC 200, which was originally supposed to feature a Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz rematch.
