As we know, Brock Lesnar is still part of the WWE roster and he’ll be at the Royal Rumble PPV as well. As for UFC, Dana White had this to say about his standing there:
“He’s not out of the picture,” White said about Lesnar. “I think he’s already under contract with me. So we were talking about it and then he ended up signing a new deal with WWE. What I think happens is he’s in a very unique position cause he can play this thing between UFC and WWE. They get right down to the wire and I think Vince [McMahon] throws so much money at him that he says ‘all right I’ll do it again’.
“Cause this is here no matter what. When he’s ready, he can come in here and fight and he’s going to make a s—t load of money here, too. So it makes sense. I’m assuming that’s what’s going on.”
Lesnar’s last deal with WWE was said to expire in August, slightly before which, he made an appearance for UFC.
As for White’s stance on the whole thing, he had this to say:
“One of the things you guys know about me, I don’t wait for anybody,” White said. “I’m not… waiting around for anybody. I’m rolling with the business. Guy doesn’t want to fight this year? It’s all good.
“It doesn’t matter how big you are, what your deal is, you don’t want to fight, do your thing. When you’re ready to fight, you come back and you talk to me and we’ll figure something out.”
