Lesnar confirms 3 year WWE deal, turned down huge money from UFC
He revealed that UFC offered him a deal that was 10 times better than his previous UFC contract, but he told them that it wasn’t about money.
“The fighter in me wants to continue, but at this stage in my life, it ain’t just about me anymore. You put your pride to the side. You hug your wife and your kids.

Why go backward?”
