Reports have now surfaced that The Rock played a big part in convincing the UFC president that it would not be nearly as bad as he thought it would be.

When Brock Lesnar opted to stay with WWE for another three years, UFC lost out on someone that could draw big numbers for them again.

Since the void is still there, that has caused other great draws into considering a comeback. Georges St Pierre is now thinking about coming out of retirement to return to MMA.
