UFC President Dana White told ESPN that Brock Lesnar informed him that he intends to retire from MMA. “Brock Lesnar told me he’s done,” White said. “He’s retiring.” Read more on the story at MMAFighting.com.
Powell’s POV: White has been known to mislead the media when it comes to big announcements. That said, it’s been nine months since Lesnar confronted Daniel Cormier at UFC 226, and there’s no buzz about the fight taking place. In fact, UFC is now working toward a Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic rematch.
Dana White: “Brock Lesnar told me he’s done. He’s retiring.”
UFC pivoting interest in Cormier’s next fight to Stipe Miocic rematch. Story coming via myself and @arielhelwani shortly.
