Brock Lesnar to Become the King Mo of the UFC and WWE? Don’t Bank On It

Brock Lesnar at UFC 100The mixed martial arts and professional wrestling worlds were up in arms after Brock Lesnar attended UFC 146 in Las Vegas over Memorial Weekend.

Well, it wasn’t just that Lesnar attended the event; it was more UFC president Dana White revealing that he was meeting with the former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE performer after the show.

Everyone immediately jumped to the conclusion that the meeting was about Lesnar inquiring about a possible return to the UFC.

That very well could be, but Lesnar just signed a one-year, multi-million dollar contract with the WWE and is playing up an angle where he is unhappy with the contract and suing the professional wrestling giant… which very well could have led to White’s statement in his post-fight interview with Fuel TV on Saturday night.

When asked about his meeting with Lesnar, White said, “It was probably one of the worst meetings we’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar and I honestly have not talked to him since.”

Now, as contentious is Lesnar can be, White and Fertitta have typically worked well with the WWE superstar.

“It was the worst meeting I’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar. It was me and Lorenzo. In my opinion, it couldn’t have gone worse,” he added.

Lesnar’s appearance at UFC 146 and the subsequent meeting with White and Fertitta could have been part of the WWE superstar’s pro wrestling angle, whether or not the UFC brass knew anything about it going into the meeting.

Maybe it was all staged for Lesnar to sell his WWE lawsuit, acting like he was interested in coming back to the UFC. It would seem a bit out of character for White and Fertitta to actively take part in such an angle, but it wouldn’t be all that off the wall for Lesnar and “legal advisor” Paul Heyman to have met with White and Fertitta in an attempt to further the storyline they’d conjured up for WWE.

Regardless of why the meeting went down or the intent behind it, don’t expect Brock Lesnar back in the Octagon any time soon, unless White and Fertitta are willing to make him the King Mo of the UFC and WWE.

    I’m confused, what does that mean?…. The king mo? He’s just another dude making a buck on multi-sport promotions. Is “MO” being mocked in this article or do people think he is some messiah of combat sports? I truly am confused here…lol. Anyone care to enlighten me?

  • elguapo

    Pretty sure nobody considers Mo to be the messiah of combat sports, except possibly Mo himself. I’ve said in previous Brock articles, I think this is just a bit of UFC doing wwe a favour with their Brock storyline. UFC will probably get some sort of guidance on how to run live shows, overseas tours, merchandising etc in return. Or even more plausible was that a retired fighter went to an event to watch some fights.

    How about a big fat cup of who cares. Quit beating a dead horse. Brock is done.

    Ugh

    Brock needs to STAY retired. Away from the sport of MMA. I don’t care to see him take another beating. Cause that’s what’s going to happen if he comes back. Does anybody really believe he’ll be able to hang with any of the top 5 Heavyweights in the UFC currently? Of course not. Hell, even Roy Nelson would beat him.

    Enough with the Lesnar drama already. Keep him where he belongs. In fake wrestling.

    Dana needs a filter. What to talk about and what to leave out when taking to reporters. Why talk about a meeting when you have no idea what it is about? Strange. Logically, meetings with employers go poorly for only a few reasons. I bet, since it was reported he’s unhappy with WWE, he offered to come bank to the UFC if they helped him pay a buyout. Increase his pay it’s worthwhile for Brock to break his deal. Brock said since I’m such a big PPV’S draw, it will benefit us both. UFC told him he’s under contract and the deal stands – no renegotiation. Brock gets mad. Feels like he’s owed more but UFC doesn’t see it that way. I bet this is the situation.

    to the first poster… because king mo is allowed to do pro wrestling on the side. its in his contract

  • kylesmith

    I think Brock was just there in case Frank beat Junior. If Mir was the champ again I think Brock would want a rubber match because Frank is the only fighter who won’t smash his face.

      Kyle, I think you may have hit the nail on the head–that makes sense to me. Nothing else really fits

    All you guys are idiots who will believe anything DW or Lesnar say. Vince McMahon the chairman of WWE does not let anyone under a million dollar contract fight for any other organization, pro wresling or mma… he WILL NOT pay millions of dollars to someone who will go to another organization, build up their ppv, their promotion profile and risk getting injured and not able to wrestle inside the WWE ring. Is that not clear enough for you guys?? Did I break it down enough for you to understand? This is why the Fertittas do not let their fighters go and be part of any pro wrestling organization, and McMahon plays the same way, he does not let anyone under WWE contract go to Bellator, UFC, TNA, STrikeforce, Boxing or anywhere else!!!!!!!!! It makes sense. Now stop listening to the media so much and quit drinking the coolaid that Lesnar throws your way, he went to sit at that UFC ppv for the benefit of the WWE storyline, and DW fell for it too or is playing along.

    It sounds very lucrative but I doubt Vince Mcmahon or Dana White will ever allow Brock Lesnar to both wrestle in WWE & fight in the UFC at the same time.
