Shares 0

The Associated Press covered WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar re-signing with the company and announcing his decision on Tuesday’s evening episode of SportsCenter on ESPN.

In their piece, they detailed a last-minute attempt from the UFC to obtain the services of their former heavyweight champion. According to their report, Lesnar said UFC was offering “10 times” what he making earlier in his MMA career.

UFC Chairman Lorenzo Fertitta reportedly continued to pitch Brock when he called him and Dana White on Tuesday to inform them that he was remaining with WWE on his way to ESPN’s downtown Los Angeles studios.

Obviously the pitch was too late as Brock signed on the dotted line Monday night at Raw.

    That is insane because Brock made a mint in his stint with the UFC. Can you imagine how much Vince is giving him to stay? This whole thing blows my mind.

    Hope he has a better run now in WWE.
