UFC president Dana White opened the proverbial can of worms when he made mention of a potential Brock Lesnar-Fedor Emelianenko fight in the future. Well, White clarified what happened in his recent interview with UFC Tonight.
“The question on the website was, ‘Could Dana make this fight?’ Then I asked if people wanted to see this fight?” White said. “I was asking the question. I’ve done so much to get Fedor in the UFC, but the guy retired. I couldn’t get him when he was fighting, I don’t know if I could get him now.”
Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, left MMA to return to professional wrestling. He signed a one-year contract with the WWE. Emelianenko has stated that he is done, but could be talked back into a fight if it interested him.
