UFC President Dana White has doubled down on former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar’s MMA retirement.
Back in April, it was revealed that Lesnar was 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 UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and Lesnar. Now, Lesnar is back on WWE television as he recently won the Money in the Bank briefcase.
White spoke with TMZ Sports where he talked about not reaching a deal with Lesnar that led to his MMA retirement.
“I know he was looking into doing a new deal with [Vince McMahon] to stay with the WWE. [We’ve] always had a good relationship with Brock, we’ve always dealt really well with each other” … but the bottom line is Lesnar isn’t “100% in” on fighting anymore. You have to be ALL IN on fighting and if you’re not all in, then you shouldn’t fight. He made the decision and it’s the right decision.”
