UFC President Dana White Says Brock Lesnar Not Going to WWE for Wrestlemania

UFC president Dana White has often said that he doesn’t want his fighters crossing over into the scripted world of professional wrestling. The sport of mixed martial arts is too young and has fought the stigma of being lumped alongside professional wrestling for too long for him to take a chance on mucking up the waters even more.

Still, rumors persist, especially among the professional wrestling crowd, that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is headed back to his former WWE stomping grounds for a starring role at Wrestlemania XXVII in April in Atlanta.

The rumors got started largely due to a brief face-to-face confrontation between Mark Calaway, who performs under the moniker The Undertaker in the WWE, and Lesnar following Lesnar’s loss to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 in Anaheim, Calif.

White, following the UFC 125 prefight press conference on Wednesday put his foot down on the rumor’s jugular, saying his fighter isn’t going anywhere…

  • I don’t know why, as a raising star, Lesnar would want to go anywhere. He already has the fame and the name recognition to stay in the UFC for years to come. So this doesn’t come as much of a surprise to me.

      “I don’t know why… so this doesn’t come as much of a surprise to me…”

      If you don’t know why he’d want to do it, how come it doesn’t surprise you? Explain yourself!! 😀

    Never mind, I’ll explain it… Cuz when the going gets tough, Brock gets goin’… the man’s a quitter, plain and simple, and I know he’d loose his shit to hear someone saying that about him, but look at his history.

    He was set for life in the WWE after a very short amount of time invested (relatively), but quit, cuz it got hard. He tried to get into pro football, but quit, because he couldn’t walk straight into the lineup. Now he’s going to quit MMA because he lost a fight he felt he should have dominated.

    It’s too bad that someone with his determination and work ethic can’t shake the expectations. Obviously, he was the kid who excelled at everything he did first-time, every time, with little to no effort. Sadly, as he got older, instead of taking those days in stride, he expected life would always be like that, and when he’s not the king of the mountain, he just can’t take it.

  • Amen to that. The only reason he kept fighting after the 1st Mir fight was because he got subbed. He walked away with barley a scratch on him and was able to say “I was winning till I got caught”
    After being absolutely DESTROYED at the hands of Velasquez he has no excuses.
    If he would have been ko’d by anyone else I think he would have walked then too.
    Hope we are wrong, because I think the heavyweight division could be on the brink of becoming a bit stagnant once again.

    It’s about the money morons. The UFC pays it’s “stars” in the hundreth thousands! If Brock did just one wrestlemania fight he will get from 15-25 million. So do the math idiots!!!!!!!!!!
