Former UFC Champion Bas Rutten Believes that the UFC will most likely re-sign Brock Lesnar after his suspension because they absolutely need the PPV numbers from him because of the loss of Ronda Rousey and the strong possibility of her retiring. Champions such as Stipe Miocic, Tyron Woodley, Michael Bisping, Demetrious Johnson and Joanna Jedrzejczyk are barely pulling a fraction of the numbers that Conor McGregor is.
Of course Dana White is not happy with what happened with Brock Lesnar at UFC 200. Mark Hunt filed a lawsuit against Lesnar, White and the UFC because he believes that they knew about this all along and let the fight happen anyways. Brock Lesnar is a big draw because he was such a big star in the WWE and is also freakishly talented because he was able to become a UFC champion even just after just a few fights. The UFC needs Lesnar’s starpower to even come close to Conor McGregor’s numbers when it comes to PPV’s.
It makes sense what Rutten had to say about this and this is his exact quote on the matter:
