Brock Lesnar Interested In Fighting Again
During a press conference yesterday UFC President Dana White says that Brock Lesnar is interested in fighting MMA again. The way he said it suggests they may try and work something out where he can fight and wrestle at the same time:
“Brock Lesnar’s under contract with the WWE. We have a great relationship with him. He’s healthy and he has said that he’s interested in fighting again … we’ll see what happens.”
Technically Lesnar is under an exclusive contract with WWE until Wrestlemania 31, so this could be factored in to his next deal.
