A few weeks ago, UFC President Dana White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is retiring from competition and won’t attempt a comeback.
This was a change in plans for the promotion as they had been trying to get a fight done between Lesnar and UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.
With Lesnar retiring from MMA, his expected fight against Cormier won’t happen. The UFC star recently spoke with ESPN reporter Ariel Helwani where he stated that he thinks Lesnar could come back and fight at some point in the future.
“I think that Brock is a competitor and I do believe that if the right opportunity presents itself for him he would do it,” Cormier said. “The guy is a fighter. Everybody kind of shits on Brock Lesnar and talk like this guy can’t fight, but he is a fighter and he is a competitor and he likes money.
“So for the right amount of money and the right opportunity, I am sure Brock Lesnar could be convinced to come back.”
Lesnar has his next date with WWE booked as he’ll work the upcoming show in Saudi Arabia on June 7th.
