Lesnar: ‘Fertitta offered up double, but UFC return like a bad dream’

Brock Lesnar

“Lorenzo said to me, ‘Can we sharpen our pencil? Can we double it’. I said, ‘It’s not about that. I’m calling you to tell you where my heart is, and it’s not about the money.’ I’ve been a barbarian my whole life. I’m just a smarter barbarian now. Evolution, you know? I tried to picture myself coming down to the cage, and it was like a bad dream. It just wasn’t right. It didn’t feel right.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar talked about his decision to go with the WWE contract extension over a return to the Octagon.
