• Real Reason Why Brock Lesnar Retired From UFC/MMA

According to ESPN, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is retired from MMA once again & won’t be returning to the UFC.

UFC President Dana White noted that Lesnar told the company he’s done and won’t be returning for a fight.

“[Lesnar] told me he’s done, he’s retired,” White told ESPN. “We’re going to move in another direction with Cormier.”

Lesnar recently noted that an offer for a UFC Heavyweight Title fight with Daniel Cormier is on the table for this Summer, but he hasn’t taken it. Lesnar did an angle with Cormier last Summer at UFC 226, but it looks like there’s going to be no pay off to that.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Lesnar retired from MMA/UFC because UFC wasn’t able to match the money that Lesnar wanted for his next fight:

“Lesnar had a certain price he wanted guaranteed to do the Cormier fight. UFC, with its ESPN deal where the PPV money is guaranteed, didn’t meet the offer. Lesnar had a certain price he wanted that was worth it to him to go through a hard training camp at 42 and then get into the cage with an all-time great fighter and athlete in Cormier.”
