Though UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier was looking forward to a blockbuster bout (aka a massive payday) with WWE Superstar and former UFC champion Brock Lesnar, UFC president Dana White slammed the door on that idea once and for all this weekend.
“I know (Lesnar) was looking into doing a new deal with [Vince McMahon] to stay with the WWE,” White told TMZSports, explaining why Lesnar failed to return to the UFC after all signs were pointing in that direction.

“The bottom line is Lesnar isn’t 100-percent in on fighting anymore. You have to be all-in on fighting and if you’re not all-in, then you shouldn’t fight,” said White.
“(Lesnar) made the decision and it’s the right decision.”
