UFC president Dana White once again offered his blessing to Brock Lesnar returning to WWE. "It was always upfront and said in his deal that he could do the WWE," White told MMA Junkie.

White also praised Lesnar and his camp for keeping a tight lid on things. "Everything we did with that guy, nothing ever leaked out of that camp, ever leaks out of that camp," said White. "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." To read the full story, visit

Powell's POV: I assume that White meant the contract included language that allowed Lesnar to return to WWE once he was finished with UFC. After all, White stated that he would not allow Lesnar to appear at WrestleMania 27 after Brock and Undertaker had their moment a UFC event. To his credit, White has been nothing but professional regarding Vince McMahon and WWE in interviews over the years.
