Brock Lesnar Has Retired From The UFC
UFC officials confirmed the news to ESPN.com on Tuesday following an initial report by MMAFighting.com.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) also confirmed it was aware of Lesnar’s retirement. Because of the retirement, Lesnar is no longer included in USADA’s testing pool under the UFC’s anti-doping program.
It looks like we might be seeing Suplex City more often than we’re used to in the WWE. Per ESPN and confirmed by the UFC, former Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is retiring. Lesnar is one of the most unique athletes in pro wrestling/MMA history, and is still the only man to hold both the WWE title and the UFC Heavyweight title. While his latest comeback this summer is now mired in controversy, it shouldn’t change the impact he’s had on either company. If the retirement from the UFC sticks, that opens up Brock for more dates to throw guys around in the WWE. He was most recently featured as a participant in the Royal Rumble, and is scheduled to fight Goldberg on April 2nd at WrestleMania 33. With Goldberg scheduled to face Kevin Owens for the Universal title at Fast Lane on March 5th, we very well could see Lesnar crowned as the new champ at WrestleMania.
