Stop me if you’ve heard this before:
Dana White: “Brock Lesnar told me he’s done. He’s retiring.”— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) May 1, 2019
UFC pivoting interest in Cormier’s next fight to Stipe Miocic rematch. Story coming via myself and @arielhelwani shortly.
Ariel Helwani would say the UFC is “moving on” and “barring a last minute Hail Mary” a fight with Daniel Cormier will not happen. This comes not all that long after Lesnar admitted he signs short deals with both UFC and WWE so that he can go back-and-forth between the two while getting the best deal for himself. It’s at least possible, then, that he has a big deal with WWE lined up.
We don’t know that but it would line up with how he’s operated for the past decade.
Either way, for the time being it looks like Lesnar is done with MMA.
