Dana White confirms Brock Lesnar retirement

One of the biggest names that have ever entered the UFC Octagon has decided to retire from the world of MMA. For good. Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (5-3) is no longer part of Dana White’s roster, the President himself announced yesterday.

This of course means, Lesnar will be returning to WWE, where he made his name worldwide. Unfortunately, the long-awaited showdown with the current heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier is now off and the organization will be looking for a new challenger.

“He told me he’s done, he’s retired,” White told ESPN. “We’re going to move in another direction with Cormier.”

“The Saudi General Sports Authority, in partnership with WWE, will host an event at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, June 7, at 8 p.m. AST. The event will feature WWE Superstars Roman Reigns, Undertaker, Kofi Kingston, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, Goldberg, AJ Styles, and Brock Lesnar, and stream live on WWE Network,” WWE confirmed via a statement.

The last time the 41-years-old American fought in UFC was in 2016 when he defeated Mark Hunt via UD, but later the win was overturned to “No Contest” because of anti-doping violations.
