Dana White Wishes Lesnar Luck, Reveals UFC Contract Details

Dana WhiteFollowing the UFC 146 PPV, in a post-event press conference, company President Dana White had the following to say about Brock Lesnar's UFC contract, which allowed him to go to WWE:

It was always upfront and said in his deal that he could do the WWE. Everything we did with that guy, nothing ever leaked out of that camp, ever leaks out of that camp. Those guys did a deal with (WWE promoter) Vince (McMahon), and I guarantee you Vince said, 'Keep this a secret. Don't tell anybody.' And he did. He never said anything. He didn't call me. I sent them a text and said, 'Congrats on your deal. I'll be watching.' [Expletive] never got nothing back. They didn't respond and say, 'Hey, thanks we're pumped.' They just did their thing. For what they do, it's cool. I'm happy for him. The fact that the guy came over here, did what he did in the WWE, came here and did what he did here, now he's back over there. Good for him and good for them. I think Brock is just one of those guys that people either really love or who people love to hate. I hear it all the time, people talking [expletive] about him. The guy came over here at 30-whatever years old. When he sat down (with the UFC), he was 1-0 in MMA, and I was like, 'You're crazy.' I said, 'This guy's going to get smashed over here,' and he didn't. He actually ended up winning the title. He was never given an easy fight. We threw all the toughest guys at him, and he accomplished what he accomplished. Good for him, and I wish him all the best in the world over at WWE.
