Brock Lesnar’s loss to Alistair Overeem last year at UFC 141 was indeed the final MMA bout of his career. It might not have been, as the former UFC Heavyweight Champion had considered coming back to the sport this year, but UFC President Dana White said on Tuesday that Lesnar has closed the door on that part of his life.
“He’s done,” White said in an interview with the Dave and Mahoney show on X107.5 in Las Vegas on Tuesday. ”He’s done. He called me a couple days ago, he’s never coming back. He just said his body… he can wrestle, but he can’t fight. But he was contemplating coming back.”
Lesnar is currently signed to the WWE through next year’s Wrestlemania event, though he could re-sign for longer after deciding against another UFC run.
