Dana White on Brock Lesnar: “He’s ready to ride off into the sunset.”

Dana White on Brock Lesnar: “He’s ready to ride off into the sunset.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE superstar Brock Lesnar is currently serving a 1-year suspension due to a failed drug test by USADA dating back to his UFC 200 scrap with Mark Hunt. TMZ Sports recently caught up with UFC president Dana White  to find out if this marks the end of Brock’s time with the UFC.

While Brock is closing in on 40 years old, the unbelievable physical specimen that he is can’t be overlooked. Randy Couture found success in his later years inside the octagon, as has Dan Henderson. So age doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand with octagon performance, and when you’re the freak of nature that Brock Lesnar is, it likely wouldn’t apply in his case either.

Be that as it may, White feels as though Lesnar’s career in MMA may now be behind. BUT, this is mixed martial arts so of course he doesn’t completely rule a return out either. Check out the video below to hear for yourself, as well as White’s thoughts on a return to the octagon by another former WWE heavyweight champion, CM Punk:
