Brock Lesnar made it zero secret of his desires to return to MMA. The 37-year-old and former UFC Heavyweight Champion had even gone as far as shown up at UFC 184 with UFC President Dana White and had his advocate Paul Heyman speak on a live WWE microphone that if he wanted to go back to UFC and unify the WWE & UFC Heavyweight titles, he could do it and nobody could stop him.

Well, one person could stop him — Brock Lesnar. The current WWE World Heavyweight Champion announced Tuesday that he had re-signed with the WWE to a multi-year deal and considered his dreams of returning to the UFC dead.

“The fighter inside of me wants to compete. The father, the husband – I’m an older caveman now. So I make wiser caveman decisions. So I’m here to say my legacy in the octagon is over. However my legacy this Sunday at Wrestlemania will not be my last.”

Since his return to the WWE in 2012, Lesnar has become the company’s biggest face, a legitimate athlete with crossover appeal in the Reality Era with an impossible to define combination of athleticism and power. He won the WWE World Heavyweight Title last August at Summerslam, defeating John Cena in unusual fashion for WWE main event standards and Sunday is defending that same title against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania.
