I made a mistake yesterday. When talking about the possibility of Brock heading to the WWE to avoid all the bad motherfuckers in the UFC’s heavyweight division, I forgot to mention a pretty big hurdle: all the bad motherfuckers in the UFC’s legal department. TMZ gets the final word from Dana:
Despite an intense standoff between Lesnar and The Undertaker at UFC 121 this weekend — in which Undie challenged Brock to a fight — UFC president Dana White tells us, “Brock Lesnar is still under contract with the UFC … he is not going to wrestle in the WWE. He cannot wrestle, box or fight anywhere else.”
I’d also bring up Brock Lesnar’s hatred of the WWE and Vince McMahon, but this is pro wrestling we’re talking about. One week you hate them for dropping your brother from the roof of an arena, the next you’re back on Monday Night Raw cutting promos.
And as for what Dana and Brock were arguing about: some say it was the amount of promotional work the UFC expected, and some say it was the quick turnaround after the Carwin fight. I guess that “UFC has the best in the world fighting three times a year” line Dana’s been repeating is more than just a subtle (for Dana) jab at Strikeforce. It’s an expectation from the roster.
