White: No deal with Lesnar, 'not coming back anytime soon'


Rumors about Brock Lesnar's potential return were circulating to such an extent that Alistair Overeem kinda sorta called him out after defeating Frank Mir Saturday night.

"I’ll be here waiting for him," said the Reem.

It would be a long wait according to However, UFC president Dana White.

Brock Lesnar is not coming back,” said White at the UFC 169 post-fight press conference. “Brock Lesnar is not fighting. I mean, does he want to come back? We’ve talked about him wanting to come back. He feels like he wasn’t 100% while he was here. He feels like he sold himself a little short and all the stuff I’ve told you before.

“But no, he’s not. We have no deal with Brock Lesnar. He’s not coming back anytime soon.”

So when it serves Dana's agenda on building momentum of a former champion coming back to the organization its ok...but when Reem calls him out its wrong...got it. I liked Lesnar when he was with the UFC. Freakish athlete, a personality that has good mic skills, and can sell a fight. But if he is still having issues with diverticulitis let him finish his career in the WWE. And if he hasn't been working on the holes in his striking game it's gonna be the same results as his first stint in the UFC. Reem should be facing: Miocic, Browne II, or JDS (even though I think JDS takes it handedly).

So, in other words expect him to be fighting again sometime this year.

You think a Lesnar call out would make him hype it more, or now that fighters are calling him out, he knows he cannot deliver on itWhich would explain why he is pissed with Allistar.
