UFC President Dana White stated emphatically at the UFC 169 post conference that Brock Lesnar is not coming back to the octagon. Below is an excerpt from coverage by FoxSports.com:
“Brock Lesnar is not coming back. Brock Lesnar is not fighting,” White said at the UFC 169 post fight press conference. “I mean does he want to come back? I mean we’ve talked about him wanting to come back. He feels like he wasn’t 100-percent while he was here and he feels like he sold himself a little short and all the stuff that I’ve told you guys before, but no he’s not (coming back).
The rumors have been rampant for the past few weeks but they were fueled by Alistair Overeem calling Lesnar out after his victory over Frank Mir on Saturday night. In that update, I explain the rumors and how they play into Lesnar’s contract with WWE. You can read our update at this link.
