They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. This one probably tops that count.
UFC President Dana White and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) are hanging out in Las Vegas.
White today took to social media to post a picture of the two together, accompanied with a teasing smiley face. White subsequently confirmed with MMAjunkie that the picture was taken today in Sin City, where the WWE is hosting its “Elimination Chamber” pay-per-view at T-Mobile Arena.
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) will also be featured at the event, signing her WWE RAW contract.
So what does it mean? Possibly absolutely nothing. After all White and Lesnar have known each other for years, and making millions of dollars together tends to create a strong bond (or so I’ve been told). And there’s the small matter of a lingering suspension from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency suspension, which was frozen with a little more than six months remaining when Lesnar retired from the sport one year ago.
But then again, the 40-year-old Lesnar has proven a master of the surprise announcement, both in his professional wrestling and MMA career.
Unsurprisingly, White declined to elaborate. Let the speculation begin.
