UFC President Dana White joined the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show on Thursday afternoon to discuss the new season of the Ultimate Fighter, an update on CM Punk, the relationship with Fox Sports, UFC Fight Night New Jersey on April 18th, and Ronda Rousey’s WrestleMania involvement.
White also talked about recent negotiations with Brock Lesnar. Despite the rumors to the contrary, White told Dukes that the UFC wasn’t very close at all to re-signing the Beast Incarnate.
“Not very close at all. We’d known that Brock was probably going to take a pass and go back to wrestling, which was the right move. You know, Brock came in here, he did incredible things and he got a great deal from Vince [McMahon]. He’s 38 years old, man. It makes all the sense in the world.”
Check out the entire interview below, check out UFC Fight Night Saturday on Fox Sports 1 and FOX, and thank you to Mr. President for joining the show!
