As noted, Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com is reporting Brock Lesnar is “in serious talks” to compete at UFC 200, and earlier tonight, during UFC 199, Dana White addressed the rumor.
White attributed what he called a misleading rumor to UFC accidentally adding Brock Lesnar to the company website as an active fighter instead of an alumni, which caused internet speculation that Lesnar was somehow linked to UFC and specifically the big UFC 200 event.
“[Brock Lesnar] is under contract with the WWE…for some reason there was a story connected to UFC 200 about Brock because he was in UFC 100 and that thing popped up…Lesnar had a great run here, he retired, I think at the right time, and he had a good run. Now he’s with the WWE snd when he signed that deal with WWE I felt that was the right thing to do.”
