Brock Lesnar on Alistair Overeem: “that guy is just that much better than me and it’s time for me to retire.”

UFC President Dana White let’s the world of MMA know that Brock Lesnar is gone and he’s never coming back; not to MMA, at least. The former heavyweight champion had multiple bouts of diverticulitis just to get back to 100-percent and run into a wall that is the new number one contender for the heavyweight title, Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on December 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC President Dana White, speaking on the Jim Rome show, said:

“The conversations I’ve had with Brock Lesnar since that fight, all indications point to it’s over. … Here’s what Brock said to me, he said ‘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.'”
