Dana White Says Brock Lesnar Is Not Returning To The UFC

A little over a week ago UFC President Dana White released that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar’s return to the octagon was “definitely a possibility.” After his win over Frank Mir at last night’s UFC 169 event, former Strikeforce champion, Alistair Overeem, addressed the rumors of Lesnar’s potential return, heres what he had to say regarding the matter:

“I heard word that Brock Lesnar is coming back to the UFC, Well, I’ll be here waiting for him! Brock Lesnar is not coming back, Brock Lesnar is not fighting. I mean, does he want to come back? We’ve talked about him wanting to come back, and he feels like he wasn’t 100 percent while he was here. He feels like he sold himself a little short and all the stuff I’ve told you before. But no, he’s not. We have no deal with Brock Lesnar. He’s not coming back anytime soon. Every fight in the UFC is interesting to me, On that note, for now, it’s holiday time. Then we’re going to sit together with the team, and then we’re going to figure out the next steps.”
