The future of Brock Lesnar still seems to be up in the air.
UFC President Dana White was asked about the status of Lesnar during a media scrum promoting UFC 231 this weekend. He brought up being told by a reporter during a previous interview that Lesnar had signed new deals with WWE, which may have closed the door on him returning to the Octagon as planned.
“Yeah, I dunno,” White said. “One of the guys I met with during PR told me that he had heard Brock Lesnar sign a bunch of new WWE deals.”
“I got sh*t to do this week,” White added with a chuckle. “I’m not focused on Brock Lesnar this week, you know what I mean? If I needed to talk to Brock, I’d pick up [the phone] and call him when I needed to.”
The UFC President would go on to elaborate, providing a little more information on the situation.
“Daniel Cormier is hurt, so it doesn’t matter right now,” White said. “If you guys knew how much sh*t I have to do in a day, okay. [Laughs] I’m not working on stuff I need to work on later. I’m working on stuff that needs to be done now. Daniel’s hurt, he’s out for awhile. I don’t know what Brock is doing, but as Daniel starts to get better and we start looking at dates Cormier might defend his title, I’ll be calling Brock or somebody at 205 [Light Heavyweight division]. Daniel tells me he still wants to fight at 205, he wants to fight there.”
