Dana White Talks Brock Lesnar Returning To The UFC

Dana White Brock LesnarAs fun as it is to talk about Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC, the reality may be much different. UFC president Dana White met with Brock Lesnar at UFC 146 and according to the head honcho it is not very likely to happen.

I must admit that I am fascinated by this whole Brock Lesnar story. The idea that Brock would retire from the UFC, sign with the WWE for $5 million for one year, lose in his very first WWE match, and then show up at UFC 146 looking to come back is what makes blogging fun. I will speculate just like everyone else but at the end of the day this all just seems like a guy playing games and having a little fun.

[adinserter block=”2″]There has been a lot of speculation about the meeting between Dana White and Brock Lesnar at UFC 146, yet neither man has talked publicly about it…until now. Dana White was asked about the meeting on Friday during the UFC on FX 3 appearances and needless to say he is not a big fan of Brock Lesnar right now. Dana addressed the meeting on the UFC on FX post show.

The meeting we had didn’t really go very well. It wasn’t a great meeting. It was probably one of the worst meetings we’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar. I honestly have not talked to him since, so I don’t know where we are at. All the stuff you are seeing on the Internet is typical Internet bullsh*t. I don’t know. It was really bad. It was the worst meeting I’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar. In my opinion, it couldn’t have gone worse.

White also talked directly to MMAJunkie.com about the meeting and reiterated his frustrations. “The meeting did not go well. Probably the worst meeting we’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar, and I haven’t talked to him since.” White wouldn’t get into the specifics, “It’s one of those things (where) it’s not worth getting into it publicly,” he said. “It’s not worth getting into the B.S. over it.

This goes against what MMA reporter Mike Sawyer tweeted earlier in the week that got MMA and some WWE fans into a frenzy.

Had an interesting conversation with someone VERY close to all the Brock Lesnar stuff. He is fighting THIS YEAR in UFC & not Frank Mir…

Ironically it would appear that Brock may have done more damage to himself playing these games than helping his cause. Vince McMahon is reportedly furious with Lesnar for appearing at UFC and meeting with Dana White and now White is considering closing the door on Lesnar after the meeting. Brock’s deal with the WWE could be up before April 2013 if they exercise all of their dates on him. If this was all meant to be used as negotiating leverage for a new contract, it may have blown up in his face.

I did find it funny how the MMA media ran with Sawyer’s tweet like it was gospel. When I worked in the pro wrestling business it was very easy to plant stories in the media whether you were planting them yourself or trying to stir something up through someone else. When I saw this the first thing I thought is that Brock’s camp planted this story to get people talking. I don’t know that to be true but you really have to read between the lines when it comes to “someone very close” giving a “scoop.” With all due respect to Sawyer my b.s. meter went off immediately.

[adinserter block=”1″]As for Dana White, I don’t believe a word that comes out of that guy’s mouth. He has lied more to the media than almost anyone I can remember in sports. No matter what White says now, Brock was the biggest drawing card in UFC history. With fighters dropping like flies to injury and dozens of live events on the horizon, there is no way that White would ever close the door on Brock sans him signing with M1 Global. For all we know White could just be protecting himself from any contract tampering issues since Brock is under a WWE deal. Quite frankly it would not shock me if there was an agreement in place and White is just playing his own game of C.Y.A.

For a guy that has only wrestled once this year and hasn’t fought since December, Brock Lesnar continues to be the most interesting man in the UFC and WWE.

  1. Let's see…it took Cain two minutes to dispose of Brock….it took Santos one minute to dispose of Cain….Mmmmm, wonder how long it would take Santos to dispose of Brock….15 seconds? Please….learn how to box and defend yourself Brock beyond going into the cowardly fetal position when someone attacks….your yesterday's joke and at least a year of boxing lessons away from being competitive in MMA…Honor your WWE contract and quit being such a stupid greedy dishonerable jerk!!!

  2. Some where in the not so future there will be a match between to side show freaks, it will be put on pay per veiw and someone will pay to see it.
    Kimbo Slice VS Brock Lesner
    Everyone will leave or change the channel saying, "now thats how you make a comedy."

      • u have no idea if he waou have been a beast…u could have spent his entire life learning stand up and still never be great at it….brock was the most overrated PRO MMA fighter in history…How many pro fights did he have again??? Tapped by mir (a guy who has never been the same since his motorcycycle crash) finished by cain and alistair..barely makes it out of the first round with shane carwin, beats up heath herring (a guy who has always had problems with wrestlers) and won the title by beating up an old and undersized randy….A 5-3 mma career record…not very impressive by my standards

        • You have no idea that he wouldn't have been a beast. I mean are we really going to argue about how good Brock would have been out of college? Did you watch old UFC shows? Did you see the heavyweight division during the years Brock would have gotten out of college? It was hardly the elite division it is today. Brock would have certainly had a shot to dominate the division for years.

  3. Brock Lesnar was just a smart marketing move by Dana. We all know that he gained more then enough viewers who moved over from the WWE to watch the great Brock Lesnar get pomelled. I would love to see him fight, but as many have mentioned above, only when he is worthy of fighting such opponents.

  4. You said it Rasta. I NEVER EVER thought he was anything special. In a way this is what the UFC gets. Milking these bulls$%t fighters like Lesnar. Work him a little more and put him in the ring to defend his title instead taking so much time off d%^king around.

  5. he just needs to stay in the WWE where everything is fake. he sucked in the UFC, his ground game sucked, his stand up sucked, he just sucked.

  6. Wow! Brock Lesnar is the most interesting man in the UFC!? What about Anderson Silva? Carlos Condit? Chael Sonnen? Dominique Cruz? Ben Henderson? Junior Dos Santos? and all the other real fighters who make up the UFC? Lesnar was a sideshow act just like all wrestling is, wrestling writers should stick to writing about wrestling

  7. Lesnar needs to learn how to box! It is no jabbing capabilities, that gets him beat up so bad. Not to mention he panics when he gets hit. He doesn't have a glass jaw! He panics. The guy can take a beating. He needs to learn how to box and keep his wits about him when he gets hit. His ground game is pretty good. He needs a snapping jab.
    Watch Junior Dos Santos punch, you will get my point.

  8. lesner was a animal on the ground but his main problem was a glass jaw. you hit him good once and he panics and takes a dive. he likes to dish punishment not take it. while good at astaged fights when its for real he folds like a deck of cards. a little hint brock stay on the farm and milk the cows!

    • Agreed. What was disturbing about Brock is that he never traveled outside of his camps (according to reports) to improve. Either stubborn or lazy. As Alistair Overeem said, sparring with Pat Barry isn't going to make Brock a world class striker.
