Dana White opens up on whether he thinks Brock Lesnar will ever return to the UFC. The Beast Incarnate’s contract with the WWE has expired.
Brock Lesnar is the only man in the world to have won the Heavyweight Championship in both the UFC and the WWE. While he earned his name and fame in Vince McMahon’s promotion, it was his showing inside the octagon that solidified his status as a once in a generation combat sports athlete.
He last fought in the UFC back in 2016 and won against Mark Hunt. The result of the match was eventually overturned to a no contest after Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance. Lesnar announced his retirement from MMA soon after and even though he teased a showdown with Daniel Cormier in 2018, he is yet to step inside the cage once again.
Dana White opens up on whether he thinks Brock Lesnar will ever return to the UFC
Brock Lesnar has teased a UFC return every time he negotiates a new contract with the WWE. Many believe that he uses the shoot fight promotion as a leverage. However, with his advancing age, the threat is not as impactful as it once was.
With Lesnar’s WWE contract expired, a UFC return has been speculated once again. However, UFC president Dana White is not biting this time. He believes that the former Heavyweight Champion is done with MMA.
“Sure, I’d love to hear how he’s doing, and how his family is, and things like that but I think that’s going to be the extent of a conversation with him,” White told TMZ . “The guy has had a long, killer career. He actually came in and became a UFC heavyweight champion and the guy has made a lot of money. I just don’t see him coming back over here again at his age.”
When speculation of Lesnar’s possible UFC return was rife, Jon Jones immediately challenged the Beast Incarnate. White had then expressed to put a match together if the two were interested. However, he seems to have a change of mind since then.
