- UFC President Dana White said at the UFC 141 post-fight press conference in Las Vegas that he had no idea Brock Lesnar was going to retire if he lost. Dana also said that Brock thought one of his ribs was broken after the hard body kick from Alistair Overeem.
A reporter asked Dana if Lesnar was free to go to “the other company,” referencing Lesnar returning to WWE. Dana said that Lesnar is retiring from UFC under contract and will remain under contract unless he and Lesnar can come to terms. Dana said he doesn’t think Lesnar should retire but won’t argue with a man who wants to retire.
Another reporter asked White if Lesnar can wrestle again and Dana said, “we will have to figure that out.”
Overeem, who defeated Lesnar in the first round of their UFC 141 main event, also said he doesn’t think Lesnar should retire. Lesnar had told his wife, former WWE star Sable, that he would retire now if he lost at UFC 141 and if he won at UFC 141, he would retire after his next fight.
Brock did not attend the post-fight press conference last night as he was receiving medical attention.
