For the past three months MMA fans have been getting kicked in the nuts on a daily basis by a steady stream of sh*t-tastic news. Fight cancellations, extended superstar vacations, steroid suspensions, steroid exemptions, stadiums squashed, ratings slumps, stupid legislation, failed legalization, driving under the influence, assault via ring girl (okay, the last two were kinda funny), the list goes on and on.

So it was nice on Saturday night to have some exciting news develop that would be really good for the sport (and my pageviews, bling bling). Pay Per View golden boy Brock Lesnar turned up at UFC 146 and set off a huge speculation bubble that he might be considering a return to the Octagon. Here’s Dana White talking about it at the post-event press conference:

“He texted me and said, ‘I want to come to the fight, but keep it quiet because I don’t want to tell anybody,'” White said. “He said, ‘What are you doing tonight? … I want to talk face to face.’

“You never know with him. He might want to come back. He might just want to hang out.”

So what came of this face to jowly face meeting that happened later that night? According to Dave Meltzer’s F4Wonline, the meeting did not go well and the whole thing might have just been a WWE publicity stunt. Lesnar’s return to WWE PPV resulted in 251,000 buys, pretty turdy when compared to the million plus potential he showed in the UFC. So maybe he was sent over to remind all those people who were into his MMA fights that he’s still alive and rocking the spandex over in the wrasslin world?

Or maybe he’s looking to make a few million bucks per fight again with both the WWE and UFC pimping him hard. That sounds kinda nice too.

    let him fight mayhem in the WWE

    This actually belongs in the kicked in the nuts category too, there’s nothing fucking exiting about this what so ever

  • kwagnuth

    I doubt it. After the Reem fight he probably didn’t shit right for a week. Plus he hasn’t legitimized WWE yet. 

  • Giallo

    just to keep the theme of the day going; wrasslings for homos

  • ButtHorn

    Oh, those are question marks in the title?!

    Way to get my dick all hard and then kick me in the nutts again.

    I might expect such dastardly behavior from a public menace like arriany, but I always considered you an ethical (if godless) citizen Ryan.

     I tuned in to every UFC Lesnar fight for various reasons. I am a fan. He was entertaining. in victory and especially in defeat. He was a spectacle and his time has passed.

    I liked the bit where Dana told the media about how Brock didn’t want him to tell anyone. Also, that pic is sensational.

  • iamphoenix

    Brock Lesnar is the jew jitsew champion in the WWE. He even wears MMA gloves and his awesome DeathCrunch shirt. That shark is a pussy!

    ^they prefer to be called mentally challenged… wrasslin’ fan is politically incorrect
