• Dana White Explains Why Brock Lesnar Is “Done” With UFC
As we have noted before, former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current Mr. Money In The Bank Brock Lesnar announced his retirement from MMA/UFC and will remain with WWE.
During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, UFC President Dana White said the following regarding Lesnar’s UFC status:
“He’s done. He’s made his decision. I don’t know where he is in that other world. I know he was looking at doing a new deal with Vince [McMahon] to stay with WWE. I’ve always had a good relationship with Brock. We’ve always dealt really well with each other.
When you decide or don’t decide to fight, it’s a decision you have to mentally be ready to fight. You have to be all in on fighting. If you’re not all in, then you shouldn’t fight. He made a decision and it’s the right decision.”
Prior to this, Dana White was asked about rumors that Lesnar didn’t want to return to UFC because of UFC’s new PPV deal with ESPN and the PPV industry being in the decline.
Below is what Dana said about those rumors:
“That’s absolutely false. And if you really look when we were on PPV, we were on traditional PPV, everybody was talking about how the PPV business was dying. It’s dying and nobody can pull numbers anymore…we were still pulling 5 to 7 million PPV buys a year when we were on the dying, traditional PPV.
Brock Lesnar got a better deal is basically what happened for Brock.”
