UFC President Dana White reveals that Brock Lesnar almost returned to UFC in 2012, for a superfight against Fedor Emelianenko that would have taken place at Cowboys Stadium in Texas.

Dana said:

“Remember when I met with Lesnar and said it didn’t go well? It actually went well. It went well, and Brock wanted to fight Fedor. Then Fedor’s dad died, and he was done.”

Regarding Lesnar’s future, White doesn’t believe he will be back in UFC:

“He’s going to do his stint in the WWE and then go away. He’s got a big farm up in Canada. He loves to farm and he loves to be with his family out in the middle of nowhere.”
