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

Sunday, February 02, 2014

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.”
