Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey Are Not Coming Back for UFC 300, Says Dana White

Dana White, the UFC president, has ruled out the possibility of Brock Lesnar or Ronda Rousey making a comeback for UFC 300. The Ultimate Fighting Championship is planning to hold its milestone UFC 300 event in April 2024. The event is expected to be one of the most spectacular in the history of mixed martial arts, and many big stars are likely to be on the card. After the announcements for UFC 297, UFC 298 and UFC 299, many fans are speculating that Conor McGregor will be the main attraction at UFC 300. However, some also hope that old legends like Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar will return. Dana White shared his opinion on Rousey and Lesnar in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.

“I get why everybody asks,” said White. “I love that everybody loves them like that, and with so much passion. I do, too. But they’re definitely not coming back for UFC 300.”
“I always had an incredible working relationship with Brock Lesnar,” said White. “It’s funny to say this because he’s such a grouchy dude, but I consider Brock Lesnar a friend.”
“I absolutely love Ronda Rousey,” said White. “She’s one of the greatest athletes I’ve ever worked with. She’s a pioneer, an inspirational figure for women, and an all-around badass for UFC.”
“I’m focused on Madison Square Garden [UFC 295],” said White. “But no, they’re not coming back.”
