An uproar was started on the internet when a commentary by Dave Meltzer of the Pro Wrestling Observer was possibly taken out of context. Many sites have taken Meltzer's words as prediction that the former champ is in fact done with Mixed Martial Arts and looks forward to a return to Professional Wrestling. While nothing is confirmed as of this moment, below is a report from MixedMartialArts.com
According to Dave Meltzer of Yahoo! Sports/Wrestling Observer, Brock is currently looking for an "exit strategy" from the UFC.
Meltzer said on his radio show that the fight with Velasquez has changed Brock's attitude on fighting and he is at the stage in his life where he doesn't want to get injured. He's very well off financially and the business man in him apparently knows that it may be time to move on.
Meltzer also mentioned that Brock hasn't trained a single day since the Velasquez fight nor he has returned any phone calls to Dana or Zuffa about upcoming matches.
Dave pointed out if Brock was motivated, he would be right back in the gym training and bringing in new coaches with the goal of beating Cain yet he isn't doing that. He's hunting and hasn't even thought about his next fight. Lesnar apparently wants to do WrestleMania "badly" and will earn an estimated 2 million dollars for 30 minutes of work.
Everything is pointing towards Brock having one more fight and ending his contract. His head doesn't seem to be in the fighting game and it looks like it was just yet another successful business move.
At this point nothing is known for certain. Brock Lesnar's professional future has been up in the air before, and there is no telling what the future could bring. All that we know for sure is that themouthofmma.com will keep you up to date with the details as we receive them!
