Why Brock Lesnar may have signed a long-term deal with WWE after UFC retirement

WWE Stomping Grounds RESULTS

UFC President Dana White stated that Lesnar has retired from MMA and that means he could be solely concentrated on WWE and professional wrestling.

That is why the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer believes The Beast may have signed a long-term contract with Vince McMahon’s company.

The Conqueror used to sign short-term deals with the wrestling giants because he wanted to keep the door open for a potential return to the Octagon but circumstances seem to have changed.

Meltzer added that he doesn’t know for sure if the six-time world champion was ever planning to go back to UFC as he claims he may have just been using it for leverage.

The wrestling pundit said: “I just know he’s been signing short-term deals, but he’s been offered really good money so he may have signed a longer-term deal because he ain’t signing with UFC.

“I think that’s real clear right now is that he’s not going.

“I don’t know if he was ever gonna go [to UFC].

“He may have been using it for leverage.

“I mean I never took it seriously that he was going I mean no matter what, I mean I never did.”

It doesn’t seem like Lesnar will be leaving WWE any time soon as he currently holds the Money in the Bank contract which promises him a world title shot at any time and place he wishes within the next 11 months.

It is unlikely that the UFC legend would have been awarded the briefcase if there was a good chance he could depart soon.

The ex-WWE Champion’s most recent appearance took place at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia where he failed to cash in on Universal Champion Seth Rollins.

Rollins launched a savage attack on the MMA hero with a steel chair before the bell even rang and so the super heavyweight athlete failed to regain his title.

Lesnar lost the Universal Championship to The Beastslayer at WrestleMania 35 in the first match of the night.
