Brock Lesnar lashed out at Dana White
“Of course, Dana, it’s fake. Everybody knows that but it’s still the same – you’re promoting the same thing we’re promoting,” Brock Lesnar had said in the year 2015.
Brock Lesnar said that even the UFC chief promotes fights the same as WWE. He also said that Dana White sells money fights and called it the same racket.
“Dana White is promoting fights, we’re promoting fights. It just so happens that we get a little more longevity out of our fight and out of our fighters because of the circumstances,” the wrestler continued. “Dana, probably in his defence, is promoting fighting – but it’s the same thing. He’s trying to sell pay-per-views. He’s trying to sell money fights. It’s the same racket.”
Calling the business model of WWE and UFC identical, Brock Lesnar compared the business models of both the companies. He also gave his views on the bosses of both companies.
The wrestler said that he found WWE chief Vince McMahon to be better than the UFC boss.
“The business model is the same; it’s identical. I think Vince McMahon’s better at it than Dana, and that might rub Dana the wrong way. Vince is the pioneer of it. He’s been doing this his whole life, and he’s dam*ed good at it.”
After the interview, the wrestler returned to the famed Octagon. There he fought against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016. The victory of the wrestler over the Kiwi slugger was overturned as he was tested positive for steroids.
