It was a big-time weekend in the world of combat sports, as the UFC, Bellator, ONE Championship and Legacy Fighting Alliance all held cards.

And of course, there was also the Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs boxing match that saw Alvarez leave Las Vegas with three of the four middleweight titles.

The UFC finished things up Saturday night with Donald Cerrone besting Al Iaquinta for his promotion-leading 23rd career win inside the Octagon. “Cowboy” also picked up his 17th fight-night bonus, which is tops in the UFC.

Bellator headed overseas with former champion Brent Primus scoring a submission victory vs. Tim Wilde.

Brock Lesnar Ends Attempts At UFC Comeback

0

The possibility of Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier for the UFC heavyweight title is now just a pipe dream.

According to a report by ESPN, Lesnar will not make another comeback to MMA.

“Brock Lesnar told me he’s done,” UFC president Dana White said in an interview with ESPN. “He’s retiring.”

Rumors of a return have swirled since last year when Lesnar squared off with UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier following Cormier’s win over Stipe Miocic. The former champion dropped the WWE Universal title at WrestleMania to Seth Rollins, sparking more talks of him competing again in MMA.

Lesnar ended a lengthy retirement at UFC 200 when he faced off against Mark Hunt. But he failed the post-fight drug test and his victory was overturned to a no-contest.

The UFC is expected to move ahead with plans for Cormier to defend his title against Miocic this August on pay-per-view.
