Dana White: Brock Lesnar is not going back to WWE

“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.”

Speaking via TMZ.com, UFC President Dana White tried to end rumors about Brock Lesnar’s departure back to the WWE. Lesnar was involved in a face-to-face confrontation with the Undertake after his defeat against Cain Velasquez at UFC 121, sparking rumors about the WWE offering him a contract to fight at Wrestlemania 27.

UFC have a well-known policy about fighters going to other organizations, and it looks like Dana White is not going to make any exception for the former Heavyweight Champ. Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer has some interesting thoughts about the situation:

    When you get any job you are usually binded to that employer…so i don’t know why you are all so surprised at this. You don’t see soccer players playing for different teams every other month unless they have been sold for good…Why is this a surprise?

    Lol, glad someone understands this. Its like the NFL. When they sold their rights the EA Sports for their Madden franchise, that includes every single player under NFL contract. No other game developer can use the likeness of those players. I use the game example instead of players playing elsewhere because them playing with another organization just sounds asinine, which should lend some sense of logic as to why the same goes for fighters in the UFC.

    conflict of interest n. a situation in which a person has a duty to more than one person or organization, but cannot do justice to the actual or potentially adverse interests of both parties. This includes when an individual’s personal interests or concerns are inconsistent with the best for a customer, or when a public official’s personal interests are contrary to his/her loyalty to public business. An attorney, an accountant, a business adviser or realtor cannot represent two parties in a dispute and must avoid even the appearance of conflict. He/she may not join with a client in business without making full disclosure of his/her potential conflicts, he/she must avoid commingling funds with the client, and never, never take a position adverse to the customer.

    If Lesnar even dreamed of going back to the WWE, even for one so-called dream match or whatever-the-hell-they-call-it, I would lose all respect for the man as an MMA fighter, because he would become a hypocrite of everything he supposedly now believes in as a true competitor in a real sport. The only reason to ever do such a thing would be for money, which would make him a total sell out and phoney as hell. It would make me completely question his integrity as a cage fighter.

    And only a complete moron would want to see UFC fighters taking time off to go get injured in fake-wrestling.

    “He cannot wrestle, box or fight anywhere else.”

    But is WWE actually considered Wrestling/Fighting or would it be ‘Entertainment’. Basically like other fighters going off and doing TV and Movies. Just wondering.

    well with pro wrestling his is more likely to get injured than doing a movie or a tv show. pro wrestlers actualy get more serious injuries than most sports, for example the undertaker who would have been the wrestling brock if he did go back, is having surgery on his shoulder in the next couple of weeks.
