Dana White briefly discusses new WWE deal signed by Brock Lesnar

UFC President Dana White was asked about the WWE Universal Champion while speaking to the media last night. Brock Lesnar has been working on a match with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier, but White doesn’t seem to be worried about the details at the moment.

Yeah, I dunno. One of the guys I met with during PR told me that he had heard Brock Lesnar signed a bunch of new WWE deals.

When asked if any deals with the WWE would interfere with his future work with the UFC, White said it wouldn’t matter.

No, it doesn’t. Look, I’m not focused on Brock Lesnar this week, you know what I mean? If I needed to call Brock, I’d pick up and call him when I needed to.

Daniel Cormier is hurt, so it doesn’t matter right now. If you guys knew how much s*** I have to do in a day, okay. [Laughs] I’m not working on stuff I need to work on later. I’m working on stuff that needs to be done now.

Daniel’s hurt, he’s out for a while. I don’t know what Brock is doing, but as Daniel starts to get better, and we start looking at dates Cormier might defend his title, I’ll be calling Brock or somebody at 205lbs. Daniel tells me he still wants to fight at 205, he wants to fight there.

    I may as well stop watching it then if Brock is going to remain in this….I’m tired of his face and him taking hostage of the belt. So no one else will have it ever again???? Is that what they are saying? They may as well make a second belt for those that CAN get it. Because they obviously got no plans on having Brock lose.

  • Greg Bush

    Yeah, hard to be invested in a show with an insignificant top title and a guy who clearly doesn’t care. There are other problems, sure, but this Brock crap is ridiculous.

    If Braun Strowman doesn’t win the Universal title at the Royal Rumble they it probably means the going to move Strowman to Smackdown after WM 35. Which it probably better for him to be WWE champion then Unversal Champion because the WWE championship is held with better pride.

    Then again it will probably either be Seth Rollins or AJ Styles winning the Royal Rumble an I believe either of the two would make better Unversal Champion then Brock Lesnar. But I believe if not for Roman Reigns illness WWE wouldn’t need Brock Lesnar.

    In other words, the less than “part timer” will be keeping the worthless strap for a title at least till Wrestlemania. WWE has become a sh*t-show. No wonder why viewership is at an all time low.
