After SEVEN YEARS apart, UFC pain machine Brock Lesnar is getting back into business with the company that put him on the map -- WWE -- in a deal that will make him the "featured star" in a brand new video game.

Multiple sources confirm ...the people developing "WWE: 12" approached Brock back in January and asked for permission to use his name and likeness in the game and the advertising campaign.

We're told Brock loved the idea -- but wouldn't sign off unless his current boss, UFC honcho Dana White, gave his blessing. Fortunately, it worked out.

TMZ spoke with White, who told us, "I love WWE and I have nothing but love for Vince McMahon -- I'm totally OK with Brock being in the game."

We're told the first commercial for the game -- starring Brock -- will be released tomorrow.

Straight from TMZ.com....

I am glad Dana signed off on it. Lesnar gets to bank some more chip, and it doesn't hurt or endanger Zuffa's product. Well played!

It may even secure some more crossover fans at some point.

Piece fat ass, you got lucky to win as many fights in the ufc as you did. Now that the heavy weight division has some contenders, you are not one of them.

bullshit, if thsat were true you can say that about chael sonnen, or clay guida(except for the fat part, he is kinda husky) for that matter, do you hate the WWE? or are you just riding shotgun on cain velaszques's bandwagon? lol

That was what I thought too. A sense of joy rushed over me as I quickly read the opening sentence only to be let down.

It may be a good idea for you to read the site rules regarding fighter bashing.

Thanks.

Step 1: Read OP.
Step 2: Remove head from ass.
Step 3: Get a grip.

How is Brock fat? I think that's the first question I want answered....The guy is built like a muscular tank....I don't think he has much fat on him. Also, he did hold the HW belt. Whether you like him or not, he's a good enough fighter to make an impact on the HW division.
P.S. - Read the rules - cause its just my guess if you keep it up, you may be bashing soon at a different MMA website.

He lets brock make a few million more and helps the WWE machine keep rolling but fighters making a few thousand a fight can't rock a clinch gear shirt to the cage.

Though I see it from your perspective, I personally don't think that can be considered to be Dana's fault. Advertising isn't free. If Clinch Gear wants to pony up the $50,000 (or whatever it is) to be able to sponsor fighters, they can. He's not saying they can't. He's saying they can't do it for free. Just like I can't start my own business and expect the local TV outlets to run my commercials for free.

He always brings it in fights and is either going to finish or get finished.

To me it is nonsense to a degree. The structure fits the advertizing but if I was a fighter from the actual team quest and I cant wear camp apparel I would be pissed.

The UFC want trying to charge longtime fighter ponsors and dip their hands in when they were grateful to be on PPV again.

I am gonna have to apologize for my previous statement. Not that it excuses what I said but I must admit I don't really remember writing that. Unless he is fighting Frank Mir I even root for the guy. So yeah, my bad, I will do my best not to mix the playground and tequila again :/
