Over the weekend at UFC 225 in Chicago, Illinois, TMZ Sports caught up with UFC President Dana White (as seen in the video above) and inquired about the status of current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ is still under some sort of contract with WWE, reportedly ending after SummerSlam on August 19th.
White would state that he was under that same belief:
“Brock’s WWE deal is up at the end of the Summer I think and I know he wants to fight. So I’m sure we’ll end up getting that figured out.”
When asked who he’d like to see ‘The Beast Incarnate’ fight in the octagon, White would reply that there’s interest from both sides on a Jon Jones vs. Brock Lesnar bout:
“Obviously there’s a lot of options. You know, Jon Jones is very interested in Brock Lesnar and Brock’s very interested in Jon Jones.”
EA’s Take: From everything we’ve reported and heard so far, it’s all making sense and seeming more like Brock’s got one foot out of the WWE door. Then again, we’ve been through this rigmarole before and it wasn’t even that long ago. Even if Brock’s heading back to UFC, how much longer can he really do it for at his age? I’d imagine it would be another short-term thing, but I will say this, even I would be interested in seeing a Lesnar vs. Jones fight. I used to be a UFC fan a long time ago now, but if you want me to tune in, that’ll do pig.
