The past months have been quite busy for WWE champion Brock Lesnar who is gearing up for a highly-awaited WrestleMania 38 clash with WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns in April.

The Beast Incarnate has been an active figure in WWE shows, entirely different compared to the past where former manager Paul Heyman would do all the talking.

Lesnar has become more vocal, hinting that he is ready to embark on a WWE journey all by himself. So far he has been doing a pretty good job.

However, the reality is that Lesnar is still somehow tied to the mixed martial arts world. He made a name for himself in the UFC before opting to retire in 2011 due to health issues.

He did return in 2016 and took on Mark Hunt at UFC 200. He won that fight but the win would later be marred by controversy after the 44-year-old tested positive for steroids, leading to him getting banned by USADA.

Regardless, nothing more than teasers came forth with Lesnar seemingly set to face Daniel Cormier next for the UFC heavyweight championship. He also had some moments with Jon Jones but most of those were nothing more than teasers or hype.

To set the records straight, the New York Post asked Lesnar about his MMA plans. The WWE champion said that this door is closed and his focus right now is on pro wrestling.

Also, Lesnar feels that he is already too old to compete in the mixed martial arts scene. He added that it is a young man’s sport and stressed that he is now a WWE superstar.

“I’m too old,” Lesnar said. “That’s a young man’s sport, and that door is closed. I’m Brock Lesnar, the WWE Superstar.”

Based on the past months, it appears that is the case for Lesnar. Heading into WrestleMania 38, it will be interesting if the Beast Incarnate can walk out being the undisputed and unified champion if he wins over the Tribal Chief.
