Brock Lesnar retired from the UFC after his loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 last month. Since then the internet has been buzzing about Lesnar going back to the WWE or possibly coming back to the UFC. Dana White put an end to all that when he talked about his conversation with Lesnar on the Jim Rome show yesterday.
“I think Brock’s done. The conversations I’ve had with Brock Lesnar since that fight, all indications point to it’s over. This isn’t baseball man, half in, half out, you can go out and party the night before and then play a game. These guys have to be 100-percent into this mentally, physically, emotionally.”
“Here’s what Brock said to me. I’ll tell you what after my surgery from diverticulitis, this last surgery I had, I have never felt so good in my life’. He said ‘I’ve had the best camp I’ve ever had, no injuries, I was in great shape, all the things that could go right, went right, that guy is just that much better than me and it’s time for me to retire’.”
Lesnar had no excuses and it’s better to walk away now then losing to a chump that will tarnish your legacy. Now we will have to wait and see if Lesnar gets the itch to go back into pro wrestling.
