Brock Lesnar in the octagon at UFC 200.

Kurt Angle believes Brock Lesnar is done with UFC

Published 3 Comments

WWE legend Kurt Angle believes Brock Lesnar is now completely done with UFC following his recent suspension.

Lesnar has been a representative of both WWE and UFC in recent months, competing in UFC 200 and also SummerSlam, but according to Angle, it looks like the Beast is now done with the octagon.

Following his victory at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt, Lesnar failed not one, but two drugs tests, which resulted in him receiving a suspension from UFC.

Lesnar tested positive for the banned substance hydroxy-clomiphene, an anti-estrogen agent. He was tested eight times by USADA before the fight with Hunt, but the results came back following the fight, which he won by unanimous decision.

The 39-year-old will receive a formal hearing at a later date, but he could be dealt a two-year suspension, which would all-but end his MMA career.

Lesnar made his name in WWE before leaving back in 2004, and three years later, it was announced that he had signed with UFC, going on to make a big impression in the industry.

He then returned to WWE in 2012, and has been a part-time wrestler ever since, feuding with John Cena, The Undertaker, Triple H, and most recently, Randy Orton.

After his participation at UFC 200, there were suggestions that Lesnar wasn't finished with the company and that he would have another stint in the octagon.

However, Angle doesn't believe that will happen now following his suspension and potential two-year ban.

Speaking on The Ric Flair Show, Angle spoke about Lesnar and he eventually discussed his future in UFC, admitting that he thinks it's over now for the Beast.

He said: "I don't think so. I think Brock, I think, he did what he wanted to do.

"He wanted to prove that after getting hit with diverticulitis, he wanted to get back in there and show people he was dominant and he did that.

"I don't see why he'd want to go back, except to make another million-dollar payday. Brock doesn't need the money. He doesn't need to fight again to prove himself, so I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't go back.

"But I see Brock finishing his career in WWE. I don't see it any other way."
