Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has been making a bit of noise in the media this week with regard to the Mixed Martial Arts promotion.
Having returned following a four-year hiatus to follow wrestling aspirations with the WWE, Lesnar made an impressive comeback as the co-main event at UFC 200 where he fully utilised his gorrilla-like size and strength to brutally dominate heavy hitter Mark Hunt.
However, two subsequent failed drugs tests following the event have put Lesnar’s name under a dark cloud as he returns to the protective embrace of the wrestling entertainment organisation, shielding him from the domineering clutches of USADA invigilators.
In light to such unfoldings, outspoken featherweight champ Conor McGregor made another set of discriminatory comments towards Lesnar and the WWE:
“For the most part, those WWE guys are pussies, to be honest. They’re messed up pussies. Fair play to Brock , he got in and fought, but at the end of the day he was juiced up to the fucking eye balls, so how can I respect that?,”McGregor ranted.
When speaking to Sam Roberts, Lesnar was nonplussed by McGregor’s comments regarding pay-per-view earnings but did not take kindly to his latest rantings:
In light of all this controversy regarding Lesnar’s MMA career, it came as somewhat of a surprise when speaking to tmz.com that Lesnar wanted to make it adamantly clear that his UFC career is by no means over, with a return to the octagon quite possible.
While it is a long road ahead, the NCAA Division 1 All-American was of the mindset ‘never say never’:
“I’ve got a few challenges I have to overcome before I can get there (UFC), but for right now I’m going to focus on my WWE career.”
“I wanted to step back into the octagon and avenge my loss against diverticulitis. This Sunday I face Randy Orton at Summerslam and that really is whats all on my mind.”
“I thank my fans that watched me in the octagon, I thank them for their support. This has been a bumpy road, I’m going to get through this alright and there will be a day, maybe, that they see me back in the octagon”.
One would feel that such comments are premature given the ban in which Lesnar would first have to serve under USADA legislation, and given the fact that the man is now pushing on to 40, such a suspension would surely rule him ineligible to compete in the octagon until a ripe old-age.
