Brock Lesnar to Become the King Mo of the UFC and WWE? Don’t Bank On It


Brock Lesnar at UFC 100The mixed martial arts and professional wrestling worlds were up in arms after Brock Lesnar attended UFC 146 in Las Vegas over Memorial Weekend.

Well, it wasn’t just that Lesnar attended the event; it was more UFC president Dana White revealing that he was meeting with the former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE performer after the show.

Everyone immediately jumped to the conclusion that the meeting was about Lesnar inquiring about a possible return to the UFC.

That very well could be, but Lesnar just signed a one-year, multi-million dollar contract with the WWE and is playing up an angle where he is unhappy with the contract and suing the professional wrestling giant… which very well could have led to White’s statement in his post-fight interview with Fuel TV on Saturday night.

When asked about his meeting with Lesnar, White said, “It was probably one of the worst meetings we’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar and I honestly have not talked to him since.”

Now, as contentious is Lesnar can be, White and Fertitta have typically worked well with the WWE superstar.

“It was the worst meeting I’ve ever had with Brock Lesnar. It was me and Lorenzo. In my opinion, it couldn’t have gone worse,” he added.

Lesnar’s appearance at UFC 146 and the subsequent meeting with White and Fertitta could have been part of the WWE superstar’s pro wrestling angle, whether or not the UFC brass knew anything about it going into the meeting.

Maybe it was all staged for Lesnar to sell his WWE lawsuit, acting like he was interested in coming back to the UFC. It would seem a bit out of character for White and Fertitta to actively take part in such an angle, but it wouldn’t be all that off the wall for Lesnar and “legal advisor” Paul Heyman to have met with White and Fertitta in an attempt to further the storyline they’d conjured up for WWE.

Regardless of why the meeting went down or the intent behind it, don’t expect Brock Lesnar back in the Octagon any time soon, unless White and Fertitta are willing to make him the King Mo of the UFC and WWE.
