Brock Lesnar, fresh off a commitment to WWE that earned breaking news attention on ESPN, was denied a title rematch on tonight's WWE Raw. It sent the former UFC fighter into a rampage that left announcers, bystanders and even "cameramen" in a wake of destruction. Since Raw announcer Michael Cole was one of those who…
Brock Lesnar, who is scheduled to defend his WWE heavyweight champion title against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31 this weekend, went on SportsCenter today for an interview with Michelle Beadle. Once there, he announced that he had re-signed with WWE, and will not be returning to UFC.

The fuzzy lines that divide pro wrestling from UFC got even more blurred tonight on WWE Raw when promoter Paul Heyman offered up a threat that his charge, Brock Lesnar, would return to UFC and "unify" the pro wrestling and MMA heavyweight belts.
The Undertaker's 21-match unbeaten streak at WrestleMania is no more, after a surprise loss to Brock Lesnar last night. Fans were in shock, but no one was happier than those bettors who put money on Lesnar when he was a huge underdog.

Here's the shot from Alistair Overeem that knocked Brock Lesnar out of UFC (along with Lesnar's announcement that made it official). The announcement seems to have come a fight too late, given how miserably Lesnar managed to defend himself against Overeem's strikes. Bon voyage,…
You may have seen some whining and bitching when this video of Brock Lesnar taking out prairie dogs with what appears to be the BFG 9000 from Doom hit the web.

Dana White and the UFC convened an emergency conference call yesterday to announce that human orca Brock Lesnar has come down with diverticulitis for a second time and will pull out of his fight against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 131. What, you may ask, is diverticulitis? The National Center for Biotechnology…
The UFC Champ just got over a nasty case of diverticulitis, no thanks to Canada. In a move sure to upset half our nation and all of theirs, Lesnar trashed universal health care and called Canada "a Third World country."
