UFC President Dana White talks the return of Brock Lesnar

Alistair Overeem called out Brock Lesnar following a dominant victory over Frank Mir at UFC 169, but the act appears to have been for naught.

Speculation has surrounded Lesnar recently in regard to a possible UFC return, as promotion president Dana White previously indicated that the former heavyweight champion had expressed interest in competing once again.

“I heard word that Brock Lesnar is coming back to the UFC,” Overeem stated during his in-cage interview. “Well, I’ll be here waiting for him.”

Well, Overeem will be waiting until he’s blue in the face then…

“Brock Lesnar is not coming back,” White stated at the UFC 169 post-fight press conference. “Brock Lesnar is not fighting. I mean, does he want to come back? I mean, We’ve talked about him wanting to come back. He feels like he wasn’t 100 percent while he was here. He feels like he sold himself a little short and all the stuff I’ve told you before.

“But no, he’s not. We have not deal with Brock Lesnar. He’s not coming back anytime soon.”

Lesnar, who is now 36, hung up his MMA gloves after getting TKO’d by Overeem over two years ago at UFC 141. He left the game with a 5-3 professional record, with all but one of his scraps coming inside the big leagues.

Sorry, Lesnar fanboys. This book is closed, it’s time to move on once and for all…
