Dana White Won't Let Brock Lesnar/UFC Return Rumors Die

Shares 0

UFC President Dana White continued to tease the idea of Brock Lesnar fighting again Wednesday night after UFC Fight Night 35, implying there's a possibility a deal could be worked out with WWE. We covered this last week after a Tweet made by Los Angeles Times sports writer Lance Pugmire that claimed White and Lesnar were "talking."

WWE issued an exclusive statement to WrestlingNewsWorld.com, confirming they have exclusive rights to Lesnar's services and that exclusivity extends to ultimate fighting competitions.

However, a source with knowledge of the situation, told me that WWE would allow Lesnar to fight for UFC if he was "guaranteed to win." They doubted there was a possibility of it actually happening as Lesnar usually backs off wanting to fight again after the initial urge to return.

The bottom-line is Lesnar is contractually bound to WWE and any fight for UFC would have to be approved by them throughout the duration of the agreement.

    That’s Dana White for you, so desperate to pull the UFC out of its slow, gradual decline that he clings to every possible bit of media attention and throttles the life out of it.

      I agree.. Dana is an ego-maniac who actually believes he can beat Tito Ortiz in a fight.. he’s the Eric Bischoff of the UFC
