    Former UFC champion and current WWE superstar Brock Lesnar has elected not to return to mixed martial arts after all.

    UFC president Dana White told ESPN on Tuesday that Lesnar (5-3) informed him he does not intend to fight again. The UFC had discussed booking a heavyweight title fight between Lesnar and defending champion Daniel Cormier this summer, but Lesnar ultimately informed White last week he is retired.

    "He told me he's done, he's retired," White told ESPN. "We're going to move in another direction with Cormier."

    White said the new plan is to book a rematch between Cormier (22-1) and former champion Stipe Miocic (18-3), who previously met at UFC 226 in July 2018. Cormier claimed the heavyweight belt by knocking out Miocic in the first round.

    Lesnar was in attendance at UFC 226 and even confronted Cormier in the Octagon immediately after the knockout victory. White has said in multiple interviews since then that he wanted to make the fight if he could strike a deal with Lesnar.

    Lesnar had also entered the UFC's mandatory anti-doping program in anticipation of a comeback.

    Earlier this month, Lesnar was a keynote speaker at the Assiniboia Sports Celebrity Dinner & Auction in Saskatchewan and told the crowd that he still had not decided whether to accept the fight with Cormier.

    Lesnar, 41, hasn't fought since UFC 200 in July 2016 when he defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. The fight was later overturned to a no contest after Lesnar failed two drug tests surrounding the fight for the banned substance clomiphene.


    White: Lesnar 'retired'; Cormier-Miocic II in works

    Also, if this is true DC should retire too. His self imposed deadline has already come and gone. The rematch with Stipe is more of a risk and way less pay.

    Can someone look up how many times he's been tested since going back into the USADA pool?

    Being paid 20 bucks to sweep up the clown wigs and mop the jizz off the deck after one of his pan-sexual parties doesn't count as "privileges".

    No freak fights for Championship belts. People will pay to see Lesnar fight Junior Albini.

    I honestly won't believe this until DC vs Stipe is officially announced by the UFC. We all know that Dana likes to say that a fighter is done or that he doesn't want to fight so he can gain leverage in negotiations. This essentially only tells us that a DC fight announcement is imminent.
