Dana White Makes Several Revelations In Intriguing UFC Tonight Interview

Dana White Makes Several Revelations In Intriguing UFC Tonight Interview

To no one's surprise, Mark Hunt is not happy with Dana White's comments regarding Brock Lesnar and his possible return to UFC. "I've said many times that I don't see Nate Diaz fighting". It just goes to show the credibility when a guy like Brock Lesnar's coming back, so it's all about money.

As noted, WWE star Braun Strowman angered The Beast, Brock Lesnar, during the opening minutes of their Triple Threat WWE Universal Title match at Royal Rumble, when The Monster caught Lesnar will a stiff shot. Since news of Lesnar's positive test, Hunt has been on anti-PED crusade, and the fighter also launched a lawsuit against Lesnar and the UFC.

Lesnar's victory over "The Super Samoan" was overturned to a no contest following the discovery that he'd failed drug tests before and after the historic card.

Lesnar went on to achieve considerable success in the Mixed Martial Arts world; winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship and besting the likes of Frank Mir, Heath Herring, Randy Couture and Shane Carwin. Jones is awaiting a final hearing in regards to his own failed drug test previous year that saw him be stripped of the title once more.

Brock Lesnar's current deal with the WWE expires after Wrestlemania 34, but the company could keep him with them until August of this year.

"I'm a dying breed, considering how fast-paced the sport has become with the cruiserweights and guys like AJ Styles who can go out there and do these insane, unbelievable things", Strowman said. "I don't know, honestly".

For Lesnar to return, he would not only have to declare his intention to fight again, but he would also have to undergo at least six months of drug testing from USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency), while also serving out the remainder of his suspension from the previous positive drug test.

- CM Punk also came up during the interview, as it has been rumored that the one-time WWE superstar would face Mike Jackson at UFC 225 from Chicago this June. Bovada already has odds for a potential fight between Punk and Jackson, with Jackson being a favorite at -250 while Punk sits at +200.
