Re-signs with WWE; ends MMA career

RetirementSigns Contract

Lesnar announces on SportsCenter that he has re-signed with the WWE and that he has retired from the MMA.

I’m officially closing the door on MMA. It was a very hard decision at this stage of my career. The fighter inside me wants to compete. The father and husband — I’m an older caveman now. I make wiser caveman decisions. So, I’m here to say my legacy in the Octagon is over.

It was a hard decision to make. It took me a year. I’ve thought about this for a year. At the end of the day, it’s all about me wanting to have fun. The last two-and-a-half months I’ve been training to get back into the Octagon. I felt physically great, but something lacked mentally — and that’s not good.

SXSW appearance

Gives Talk

Rousey appears at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas as representative of UFC and talks about the women perception in sports.

I think that women fighting in the Octagon really affects everything that women see as possible for themselves. It’s not about trying to find a role that already exists that you can fit into. Now it’s trying to dream up all the different roles you can create yourself. Just like we did in fighting, we can do in every single profession out there.
