From past few months speculation has been making the rounds that UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar is returning to the UFC. The current WWE Universal champion’s contract with the wrestling organization is apparently up after WrestleMania on April 8th.
Lesnar last fought in the co-main of UFC 200 where he scores a victory over veteran heavyweight Mark Hunt, but his victory turned over to no contest due to failed drug tests. He was fined $250,000 and suspended for one year by the NSAC, later Lesnar made the decision to announce his retirement from MMA for the second time in February 2017.
During an appearance on UFC Tonight on Wednesday, UFC president Dana White put all the rumors to the bed and said Lesnar is coming to UFC:
“Yeah, Brock Lesnar’s coming back,” White said. “I don’t know when, but yes he is.”
Dana White posted a picture of himself and Lesnar on his Instagram at the end of February, which definitely confirms that a potential UFC return is on the cards for Lesnar.
There will be certain issues with Lesnar going back to UFC — as Lesnar must spend six months in the USADA testing pool before he returns to the Octagon.
If former heavyweight returns to Octagon who should he lock horns with?
