Arda Ocal: UFC President Dana White has actually said that if Brock Lesnar would ever want to return to the UFC, I would welcome him with open arms, I'd give him another fight. What do you make of that?

Paul Heyman: I make of it that Dana White is a business man and understands the PPV numbers that Brock can pull in and he's saying *whistles* I want a piece of that action. And I don't blame Dana White. Hey do you think if Brock Lesnar went to the NBA right now, I can dunk a basket ball, want to put me on a team? What teams gonna say no, we don't want the ratings you can bring in Brock, we don't want the numbers you can draw. You think if Brock Lesnar could hit a baseball out of a park that the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox, the Minnesota Twins wouldn't put him on the roster? And let him hit that ball out of that park, of course they would.

Dana White knows that Brock Lesnar can turn the Octagaon into the Brocktagon anytime he wants and his PPV numbers are going to go up, up, up up with Brock Lesnar. Why wouldn't Dana White want Brock Lesnar back?

While the analogy isn't completely right (the Vikings didn't do that with Brock), he's right about Dana.
Plus, like Dana mentioned, there's nothing wrong with a "fun fight" even if Brock isn't the top HW.

I never knew Brock had a broken jaw! maybe that is why he had trouble taking punches to the face.

Say what you want about wrestling, but Heyman knows entertainment and business.

While I dont want MMA to be more like wrestling, I do hope that some fighters can learn how to be a bit more entertaining while shit talking and cutting promos.

Chael, the recent Bonnar & Griffen promo videos, etc. are fun.

well no shit

Dana White should have matched Brock up with lesser opponents instead of the top dogs in the HW division. Afterall he has no problems with making "fun fights" for Anderson Silva.
