The fervor surrounding the possibility of former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar returning to MMA died down pretty quickly after peaking with his recent meeting with organizational head Dana White. As it turns out, the decline in discussion appears to have been for good reason too as things did not go smoothly when the sides sat down in late May.
Though lacking any sort of juicy detail, White revealed how poorly his conversation with Lesnar went when asked about it in a post-fight interview with Fuel TV after UFC on FX 3 this past Friday night, saying, “It was probably one of the worst meetings we’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar…I honestly have not talked to him since.”
Lesnar was linked to a possible comeback when he showed up at UFC 146, asking White for a ticket and a chance to meet once the event had concluded. Prior to the actual conversation White had stated he believed Lesnar wanted to talk about fighting again. The 34-year old Lesnar racked up a 5-3 record in his brief MMA career including wins over Shane Carwin, Heath Herring, Randy Couture, and Frank Mir.
The popular yet polarizing Lesnar’s latest action has come under WWE’s banner though it is unknown what his status with the professional wrestling organization is at this time.
