To follow up on yesterday’s report regarding an interview Brock Lesnar conducted with MMAWeekly.com on wanting to come to the UFC, it is now being reported that what Lesnar was attempting to do with the interview is basically an angle and that he and UFC President Dana White are on the same page. It isn’t believed he has signed a deal with UFC yet. Lesnar is scheduled to be in Las Vegas for tomorrow night’s UFC 74 “Respect” Pay Per View event. Current UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture expressed interest in wanting to fight Lesnar if given the chance at a UFC press conference as well.
It will certainly be interesting to see if Lesnar is shown on camera tomorrow night considering he is on the same page with Dana White at this point, so maybe we shouldn’t have taken his comments so seriously. Either way, what he did worked as tons of MMA media picked up on his comments. It is also interesting to see where his current negotiations with TNA Wrestling leads as Lesnar has spoken with TNA President Dixie Carter already about coming in. Kurt Angle is also said to be pushing hard to get Lesnar signed as well.
