Brock Lesnar's days inside the Octagon are over.

That is, if you ask Paul Heyman.

The former advocate of "The Beast Incarnate" recently appeared as a guest on Z100 for an in-depth interview, during which he spoke about his belief that Lesnar's UFC days are behind him now that he is older, further removed from the sport and at the beginning of a new contract with WWE.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic.

“Been there, done that. If you were to tell me that Brock Lesnar would have a shoot-out in soccer with Messi, that I believe. But he has already done the MMA schtick.

“He knocked out Randy Couture, took a beating from Shane Carwin. He’s a conqueror. What more can he do in the UFC that he hasn’t done? When Brock Lesnar went out for the Minnesota Vikings in 2004, he was 295 pounds, just suffered a motorcycle accident, and he had a torn groin, broken pelvis, a wired-shut jaw, and he still ran his 100-yard dash in Olympic qualifying time.”
