UFC fighter Alistair Overeem issued a challenge to Brock Lesnar at UFC 169 on Saturday night in New Jersey saying he heard rumors of Lesnar wanting to return to the company. Overeem made the comments following his win over Frank Mir adding, “Well, I’ll be here waiting for him.” UFC President Dana White in a post-fight press conference later that night quickly shot down the possibility of Lesnar making a return to MMA.
“Brock Lesnar is not coming back. Brock Lesnar is not fighting. I mean, does he want to come back? We’ve talked about him wanting to come back, and he feels like he wasn’t 100 percent while he was here. He feels like he sold himself a little short and all the stuff I’ve told you before. But no, he’s not. We have no deal with Brock Lesnar. He’s not coming back anytime soon.”
