There is an update from UFC boss Dna White concerning the status of Brock Lesnar, while the WWE themselves have confirmed a new stipulation for a match on next Monday's Raw.

Away from the ring and, in something of a change for Vince McMahon and co, there was some good news regarding the much talked about WWE Network.

Brock Lesnar

We begin with news on recently dethroned Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. The Beast Incarnate’s future was the subject of much speculation in the run up to WrestleMania 31 with WWE fans fearing he could jump ship for UFC. President of the MMA promotion Dana White has though today admitted they were never very close at all to bringing Lesnar back.

"Not very close at all," White told radio show 106.7 The Fan this week. "We'd known that Brock was probably going to take a pass and go back to wrestling, which was the right move."

"You know, Brock came in here, he did incredible things and he got a great deal from Vince. He's 38 years old. It makes all the sense in the world," continued the UFC president.

The admission with bemuse some WWE fans who had, until the eve of WrestleMania, become resigned to the fact that Lesnar was moving on from wrestling.


Meanwhile a new stipulation match has been announced for the upcoming Monday Night RAW.

The match, which will take place at the event in Albany at the start of next week, sees The Miz go up against rival Damien Sandow for the right to keep the Miz likeness.

Award winners

And finally, the WWE were last night crowned winners of two awards at the Cynopsis Sports Media Awards.

The company’s WWE Network won best Over-The-Top Content Service, a fact that may surprise many fans who have been critical of the product.
