Dana White says he’d take Brock Lesnar back to the UFC
During the UFC on Fuel 5 post-fight press conference on Saturday night in Nottingham, England, UFC President Dana White repeated the fact that he would take Brock Lesnar back if he wants another fight.
“Sure, I would bring Brock back. If Brock wanted to fight in the UFC, I would do it,” White said.
Talking about Lesnar going to WWE earlier this year, White said that his deal with the UFC expired with the fight against Alistair Overeem and Lesnar was free to pursue other deals, ultimately choosing to return to the WWE.
Lesnar has a mega deal with the WWE, one that runs into millions for just only a limited number of appearances. His one year deal runs out at next year’s WrestleMania, ensuring that the former WWE and UFC Heavyweight champion wrestles in New Jersey next year.
Lesnar is one of the most successful MMA fighters in terms of box office revenue, generating over a million buys for most of his UFC fights.
