WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was cage side at the UFC 184 pay-per-view yesterday in Los Angeles, California, putting more fuel to the fire that he is going to the UFC following WrestleMania.
“Brock was in town, he was here to talking to some people and apparently he’s a fan of the UFC and he wanted to come watch some fights,” White told Ariel Helwani in an interview on Fox Sports 1 following the pay-per-view.
When asked point blank if he’s coming back, White said, “I don’t know. He’s under contract with the WWE right now, when his contract runs out, I’m sure he’ll call me!”
Helwani then brought up the subject of Mir, who called Lesnar out again for their third fight. White laughed and said that Lesnar asked him, “Did Frank Mir say he wants to fight me?” Lesnar and Mir have a bad history together and their fight at UFC 100 is the highest grossing fight in UFC history. Their first fight was won by Mir but Lesnar got his revenge in his second.
UFC’s Vice President of Public Relations, Dave Sholler, tweeted a photo of Lesnar talking to White with the words “BROCK has arrived at #UFC184.”
The WWE champ walked out of Raw earlier this week.
