Dana White has officially dismissed the possibility of Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey returning to the UFC for an MMA comeback at the significant UFC 300 pay-per-view event set for 2024.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, the UFC President faced questions once more regarding the rumors surrounding “The Beast Incarnate” and “Rowdy” Ronda making a comeback to the world of combat sports next year for the momentous milestone event.
Here are some key highlights from the interview where he addresses this matter.
On the possibility of either returning at UFC 300: “I get why everybody asks. I love that everybody loves them like that, and with so much passion. I do, too. But they’re definitely not coming back for UFC 300. I’m focused on Madison Square Garden. But no, they’re not coming back.”
On Rousey: “I absolutely love Ronda Rousey. She’s one of the greatest athletes I’ve ever worked with. She’s a pioneer, an inspirational figure for women, and an all-around badass for UFC.”
On Lesnar: “I always had an incredible working relationship with Brock Lesnar. It’s funny to say this because he’s such a grouchy dude, but I consider Brock Lesnar a friend.”
