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.

Dana White is a big fan of Ronday Rousey. So big that the UFC president is willing to create an entire division just to bring her to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Is the UFC going overboard for the Strikeforce champion or is this the new "rock star" that UFC fans have been waiting for?

The UFC shook up the MMA world last week when it was announced that Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen would coach The Ultimate Fighter 17. The move was an obvious last ditch attempt to save the falling franchise but are two star coaches really enough to pull this one off of life support?
