WWE news: Brock Lesnar UFC rumors untrue according to Dana White

It wasn’t long ago that UFC rumors spread that Brock Lesnar wanted and was planning on returning to ultimate fighting. However, it turned out to be just rumors started by the WWE to get people talking about him before he made his return to the WWE, which he did less than a week after the rumors started. Now, PWS reported on Feb. 2 that Dana White came out and said that the Brock Lesnar UFC rumors are completely untrue.

The reason for White’s statement was that the Brock Lesnar UFC started up again last night.

After Alistair Overeem beat Frank Mir in a unanimous decision (10-9, 10-9, 10-9) at UFC 169, he set out for his post-match interview. In that interview, Overeem specifically called out Brock Lesnar for a match. Lesnar lost to Frank Mir in only his second MMA match before beating him in a rematch one year later.

Lesnar left the UFC after contracting diverticulitis, an internal disorder that forced him to have a 12-inch piece of his colon removed. Just months after his surgery, he decided to return to the UFC. His final match in the UFC was in 2011 against Alistair Overeem, who beat him by TKO with kicks and punches.

After Alistair Overeem beat Brock Lesnar, the big man said he was retiring from the UFC and would never compete in the octagon again.

In Overeem’s interview, he said he heard that Brock Lesnar was returning to the UFC and sent out the challenge. That caused Dana White to step up and say that Lesnar, who is still contracted to the WWE, would not be returning to the UFC anytime soon.
