Current WWE World Champion and former UFC Champion Brock Lesnar has signed a new multi-year WWE Contract. This announcement comes just days before he is scheduled to defend the WWE Championship against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31.
Many insiders had predicted that Lesnar would lose the title this weekend and then walk right into the UFC Octagon. Lesnar announced on ESPN’s Sport’s Center that he was done with UFC.
“Last night, old Vince (McMahon) put the offer on the table that I could not refuse,” Lesnar said in the sit-down interview.
“I am officially closing the door on MMA,” Lesnar said as ESPN flashed a headline on the screen reading: “Brock Lesnar rules out returning to MMA. Will remain with WWE.”
