Following UFC 232, UFC President Dana White took part in a post-event press conference in which he discussed Brock Lesnar. When asked whether Lesnar is out of the title picture, White responded:
“No, he’s not. He’s not out of the picture.” and the followed up with, “I think he’s already under contract with me” in regards to Lesnar's status with UFC.
He then went on to discuss Lesnar's future with UFC:
"We were talking about it, and then he ended up signing a new deal with WWE. What I think happens is that he’s in a very unique position, because he can play this thing between UFC and WWE. They get right down to the wire, and I think Vince throws so much money at him that he goes ‘alright, I’ll do it again."
"Because this is here no matter what. When he’s ready, he can come in here and fight and he’s gonna make a sh*tload of money here too. So it makes sense. I assume that’s what’s going on."
