According to Dana White, WWE will not allow Brock Lesnar to fight.
What is the story?
WWE and Brock Lesnar have a fairly good working relationship however Lesnar has left Vince McMahon and co. to battle for the UFC in the past. UFC President Dana White lately spoke to The Dan LeBatard Show where he said WWE is not likely to allow Brock Lesnar one other go inside the Octagon.
White also commented about Lesnar’s final foray in MMA and how it did not end up properly in spite of “The Beast Incarnate” defeating Mike Hunt at UFC 200.
In case you did not know…
Brock Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, and he also has a long record of achievements with WWE as effectively.
Now that his WWE contract seems to be up after WrestleMania 34, some people are below the mindset Lesnar may take one other stab at MMA.
The center of the matter
In The Dan LeBatard Show, White said that he does not imagine the WWE would allow Brock Lesnar to battle in the UFC once more while he is under contract.
“Lesnar was nonetheless under contract with WWE until next August. Who knows what would have happened? I do not count my chickens anymore, I will inform you that.”
The final time WWE allowed Lesnar to compete within the UFC, he defeated Mike Hunt at UFC 200. However, the win was later overturned when Brock Lesnar tested positive for Clomiphene.
Though Lesnar’s camp claimed the banned substance was in some lotion “The Beast Incarnate” was using, it did not matter to The Nevada Athletic Commission, and he was suspended from MMA for one-year.
“They did not wish to do this once more. “You saw what happened last time he was under contract and it does not look good for anyone.”
What is next?
There have been rumblings that Brock Lesnar could be re-entering the USADA testing pool for a possible return match against Jon Jones.
However, since Jones tested positive for Turinabol, any point out of a UFC return for Lesnar has been kept fairly quiet at this point, if it is still a risk at all.
It was fun to look at Brock Lesnar destroy people in the Octagon whereas it lasted, however he also took his fair proportion of beatings too. Actually, the WWE has been much better to Lesnar’s face than the UFC ever was.
