White: Brock Lesnar 'never coming back'

source: heavy

UFC President Dana White appeared recently on Dave Farra and Jason Mahoney's Dave and Mahoney show.

White was upbeat on the state of the heavyweight division.

"There's so many new up-and-coming guys right now, which is very exciting, Said White. "'Bigfoot' Silva looked good in his last fight so yes, the heavyweight division looks awesome."

White revealed he spoke recently with former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.

"He's done," related White. "He called me a couple days ago. He's never coming back. He just said he can wrestle, but he can't fight. He was contemplating coming back."

When asked whether he ever tried to make a Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko fight, White laughed and said that he "maybe" tried to make the bout. He added that Fedor "isn't coming out of retirement. He's done too."

Incorrect. I don't like wrestling but Brock was a beast. He either finished or got finished and was ALWAYS a danger to any HW. He came back from a terrible beating Shane gave him to win. All heart. He only looked non-competitive against the Reem and that was from the dammed diverticulitis...

Fedor will come back and then get smashed by again. Lesnar finally admits that he was not fighter material.

Think he'll ever try to get rid of the sword tattoo?   I'm no life coach, but I'm thinking that losing that sword tattoo on his chest would be a big, huge step forward in life.   I bet it would clear a whole hell of a lot of shit in Brock's life up in an instant.   Brock, if you're listening, consider hitting the golden years with that thing successfully gone from your life.  You'll be glad you did.
