Dana White: Brock Lesnar Will Never Return To UFC
Ever since he crash landed back onto WWE television the night after Wrestlemania XXVIII, there has been speculation that it was only a matter of time before we would see Brock Lesnar back in MMA. Having signed a year-long, limited schedule contract with the pro wrestling giant, there is still the possibility of Lesnar extending his current run beyond next year's Wrestlemania supershow.
Speaking to MMAJunkie.com, Paul Heyman said he felt it doubtful the former WWE and UFC Heavyweight Champion would return to mixed martial arts.
"I think Dana White would love to have Brock Lesnar back. I think Lorenzo Fertitta would love to have him back too. Does Brock Lesnar want to go back? I don't think Brock has anything to prove in the UFC anymore? He's 35 years old, has made a lot of money and all his houses, farms and cars are all paid for. Why would he go in and risk injury and concussions, and risk any kind of physical damage, when he doesn't need to?", said Heyman.
Current President of UFC, Dana White had previously said at a press conference in late September that, "If Brock Lesnar wanted to fight again in the UFC, I'd do it". Changing his tone somewhat, White told the Dave and Mahoney show on X107.5 that he had recently been told by Brock himself that it simply wasn't going to happen.
"He's done. He called me a couple days ago, he's never coming back. He just said his body - he can wrestle, but he can't fight, but he was contemplating coming back."
