• Dana White Reveals The Only UFC Superfight He Ever Failed To Make Involved Brock Lesnar

UFC is the #1 MMA promotion in the world and we have seen many great fights over the years.

During an interview with Laura Sanko, UFC President Dana White revealed that Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko is the only superfight he failed to make.

Fedor is considered the greatest heavyweight fighter in MMA history by many. On the other hand, Lesnar is the biggest draw in the history of the UFC Heavyweight Division (and the #2 biggest draw overall, only behind Conor McGregor).

Many fans wanted to see this fight happen when Lesnar was the UFC Heavyweight Champion in the late-2000s, but the fight didn’t happen.

Here’s what Dana said:

“I’ve made every fight that was ever possible to make in MMA including Mayweather and McGregor.

The only fight that I ever failed to make was Fedor vs. Brock.

Every other fight that we ever thought about or fans wanted to see or whatever it was, I made. That’s probably the one I couldn’t pull off.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 10, 2020) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away

On this day in 2020, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Mr. Wrestling II (Real name: John Walker) at the age of 85.

After touring the NWA territories during the 50s, 60s, 70s & early 80s, he was signed by Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation in 1984, when Vince bought ‘Georgia Championship Wrestling’ to get their timeslot on TBS.

The idea was to present GCW talent like him and The Spoiler on the WWF’s own version of ‘World Championship Wrestling’, the TV show they took over from GCW and later sold to Jim Crockett Promotions, so the fans would see some familiar faces that kept them interested in the new product.

Wrestling II didn’t last long and left the WWF in 1986.

He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but due to the young kids of today not knowing who he is, it will likely be an induction into the ‘Legacy Wing’.
