Dana White Reveals Brock Lesnar Had A WWE Clause In UFC



UFC president Dana White continued his support with Brock Lesnar returning to WWE. “It was always upfront and said in his deal that he could do the WWE,” White said at this past Saturday’s UFC 145 event.

“Everything we did with that guy, nothing ever leaked out of that camp, ever leaks out of that camp,” White said. “Those guys did a deal with (WWE promoter) Vince (McMahon), and I guarantee you Vince said, ‘Keep this a secret. Don’t tell anybody.’ And he did. He never said anything. He didn’t call me.

“I sent them a text and said, ‘Congrats on your deal. I’ll be watching.’ [Expletive] never got nothing back. They didn’t respond and say, ‘Hey, thanks we’re pumped.’ They just did their thing.”

“I’m happy for him. The fact that the guy came over here, did what he did in the WWE, came here and did what he did here, now he’s back over there. Good for him and good for them.”

“The guy came over here at 30-whatever years old. When he sat down (with the UFC), he was 1-0 in MMA, and I was like, ‘You’re crazy.’ I said, ‘This guy’s going to get smashed over here,’ and he didn’t. He actually ended up winning the title. He was never given an easy fight. We threw all the toughest guys at him, and he accomplished what he accomplished. Good for him, and I wish him all the best in the world over at WWE.”
