– Dana White isn’t upset that Brock Lesnar retired from the UFC and mixed martial arts, believing he made the correct decision. White did a live Q&A on Instagram (per MMA Fighting) and was asked if he was angry that Lesnar announced his retirement back in March.

“I wasn’t pissed at all,” White answered. “Brock had a good run here. It’s been fun. In this business, you have to be 100 percent invested. You’ve got to be in. It’s not where his head was. He made the right decision.”

White previously shot down rumors that Lesnar retired because he was unable to come to terms with the UFC due to the company’s new ESPN deal affecting PPVs, saying, “Completely not true. That’s absolutely false … That’s not why Brock Lesnar didn’t fight. Brock Lesnar got a better deal is basically what happened for Brock.”
