I'm very hesitant to believe this because of Lesnar's contract with WWE. While terms of Lesnar's extension haven't been disclosed, he was believed to have agreed to a two-year extension with WWE in January 2013. Even in the likelihood his WWE deal was shorter than that, it's at the very least through Wrestlemania XXX this year. This would make him unable to negotiate with UFC. I am not doubting what Dana White told Pugmire, I'm just doubting that UFC is actually negotiating with Lesnar while he has an active WWE contract.
