Brock Lesnar’s grand return to the UFC has been speculated upon for practically a 12 months, and now UFC president Dana White has blatantly come out and mentioned it: Lesnar is returning to the UFC. The announcement was made with surprisingly little fanfare on UFC Tonight to gentle heavyweight champion and commentator Daniel Cormier, who’s preventing for Brock’s outdated heavyweight title when he takes on Stipe Miocic this July.
And if it appears like White is blowing smoke, Paul Heyman even advised the NY Submit’s Joseph Staszewski that Brock’s WrestleMania 34 match towards Roman Reigns may very well be Brock’s remaining look within the firm for an extended whereas.
“It’s almost certainly the reply to that’s sure. The explanations are fairly public. Brock is eyeballing a return to the Octagon. He’s made no secret about it. He’s out in Las Vegas on the UFC workplaces taking a selfie with Dana White sporting a UFC T-shirt. These should not secret negotiations.”
It’s not shocking that Brock desires to come back again. At 40 years outdated, he’s nonetheless received one thing left, although he has to hop again into the USADA testing pool and serve out his suspension for a failed drug check again in 2016. Realistically, Brock may tackle the winner of Miocic/Cormier by the top of 2018. Think about that, Brock Lesnar, again on prime of the UFC.
Nonetheless, it kinda takes the juice out of that matchup if we all know Brock is on his method out. It principally ensures a Reigns win at WrestleMania, proper? Nonetheless, Brock goes to do what Brock desires to do, and if he appears like he could make one final UFC run, then it’ll be enjoyable to observe.
Oh, and perhaps stick Heyman with Ronda?
