Brock Lesnar puts rear-naked choke on MMA return

"That’s a young man’s sport, and that door is closed."

According to Brock Lesnar, it is doubtful we will ever see him compete in MMA ever again.

Lesnar (5-3-0, 1NC), 44, confirmed his retirement in a recent interview with the New York Post.

“That door is closed,” Lesnar said. “You know what, Dana White, the Fertitta brothers were exceptional to me.”

“I’m too old. Lesnar added. “That’s a young man’s sport, and that door is closed. I’m Brock Lesnar, the WWE Superstar.”

Lesnar’s last UFC bout was a unanimous decision win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016 that was overturned to a no-contest after Lesnar failed a pair of drug tests. He won the UFC heavyweight title in his fourth professional bout, defeating Randy Couture at UFC 91 in 2008. After defending the title against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin, he lost the belt to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 in 2010.

There were rumours of big fights with Lesnar against Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, but they ended up just being rumors.

Lesnar is the current WWE heavyweight champion. He is scheduled to face WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns in a unification bout at Wrestlemania 38.
