Former UFC Heavyweight champion and current WWE superstar Brock Lesnar recently talked his UFC exit. While the former champion admits that he misses MMA, he seems content to stay in the ring rather than make an Octagon return.
Said Lesnar (via the LA Times):
“That chapter in my life has come to closure, and I’m comfortable with it.” He continued, “You’ve always got that part in your mind. I do miss it, but I’ve got to keep myself in check. What I went through the last few years was quite traumatic, not being able to fight like I wanted. I got back on the horse way too soon. Coulda, shoulda, woulda.”
Lesnar’s MMA career may have been abbreviated due to illness, but the former UFC champion defended his title twice and also drew some of the largest pay-per-view crowds in the UFC’s history. While there had been talk of a come back at one point, it seems that door is closed for good.
