This was pretty obvious after his failed drug test after UFC 200, but with the way things have been lately, you never really know for sure. Also, Brock could always change his mind and come out of retirement again at any point. Not the first time he’s retired, but none the less, as of right now, Brock has officially notified the UFC of his retirement from the sport of mixed martial arts.
He came back for UFC 200 under strange conditions that included being able to avoid an initial drug test, fight, and suffer virtually no consequences after failing. It was a perfect shitstorm, but it probably helped sell a few tickets none the less. Jones was off the card, McGregor was off the card, Brock and Anderson came in to save the day.
Here’s how Twitter has been reacting to the news:
“hahahaha fuck Brock Lesnar”
“Pretty sure that failed drug test announced his retirement months ago”
“does any one give 2 shits about this cheater? go back to WWE where the fans are morons and buy into this shit”
“Thats good to hear. Theres no need for your services brock. The steroids are not the way of a martial artist.”
So, who thinks we’ll actually end up seeing Brock at least once more? Is it possible that this retirement is taking advantage of some kind of crazy loophole?
