Respected journalist says Brock Lesnar in talks with Dana White

 

LA Times sports writer Lance Pugmire confirmed reports that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was in talks with UFC president Dana White, via Twitter.

@danawhite told me last week he was "talking" to @DCBROCKLESNAR but wouldn't announce anything until a signing.

There were rumors recently that Lesnar and White were in communication, but the venerable Dave Meltzer, who knows more about MMA and pro wrestling combined than anyone alive, suggested that it was likely a publicity stunt.

Meltzer noted that the WWE has exclusive rights to services to Lesnar until April 2015, and such exclusivity extends to mixed martial arts competitions. Curiously, the first word of the story came from the UG infamous hammers hamil, some two weeks ago.

This is no means offical but brock has the itch too comeback last year he said he would not but things have changed... Brock is feeling good healthy strong brocks not interested in the title I have been told he wants big money one off fights on a limited part time basis...

Brock will not be leaving wwe he is interested in doing both and it seem wwe will give him premission to take fights during how downtime with wwe as brock is on a pay per apperance deal and has a certain amount of dates too fullfill in a one year term...

There are some hurdles too clear but should not be a problem... As for when 2014 is what im told... discussions will be discussed between both parties but I dont think brock had his last fight in ufc :)

However, the remarkably well connected Ariel Helwani tweeted that it was all in fact a publicity stunt.

Despite tweets to the contrary, I'm told there's still nothing to these Brock returning to UFC rumors. WrestleMania season, friends.

So right now, time will tell, as it always does.

It's not really a formula. Carwin/Cain/Overeem all did the same thing and he crumbled every time.

Who cares. Cain gave everyone the formula to beat him. Hit him in the face and he quits.
