Keep in mind that this could be a negotiating ploy to get more from Dana White. It's been widely speculated that Lesnar would like to headline WrestleMania in 2011 and Dana won't let him. White has openly discussed his desire to book Lesnar against Frank Mir as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter. Rumors of a Brendan Schaub vs Frank Mir match in spring 2011 seemed to have scotched that possibility, but yesterday's announcement that Schaub would be facing
Stefan Struve Mirko Filipovic aka Cro Cop, re-opens Mir-Lesnar 3 as a possible capper to an epic season of TUF.
My bet (hope) is that Meltzer's source is someone in the Lesnar camp (ie Paul Heyman) who is trying to talk up Lesnar's disinterest in returning to the UFC in order to raise the asking price.
