Now, it's unclear against whom Lesnar would return, and Miocic is busy coaching The Ultimate Fighter 27 against Cormier before the two fight for the heavyweight belt at UFC 226, but you can bet that at this point, the UFC would give Lesnar a title shot against the victor of that match-up rather easily. Brock Lesnar's WWE contract is up after this year's Wrestlemania showcase on April 8th.
For instance, at the turn of the year the UFC president said "yes" when asked by TSN to predict whether he thought Lesnar would fight for the UFC at some stage in 2018.
The possibility of Lesnar returning to the UFC was put to White last weekend, and he was very receptive to the idea. "The consummate promote, Paul Heyman argues that the time away is actually a great thing for the 6'3" 265 pound beast.
I'd love to see him. "Brock lesnar is probably the healthiest fighter to enter the UFC if he decides to do that". Lesnar's lawyers claimed that their client's failed drug test was due to a foot cream that contained the banned substance clomiphene, an estrogen blocker that can remain in the system for roughly one month following use. "... I'd like to see him come back".
On Sunday night, White added fuel to the already raging fire surrounding a second Lesnar comeback by posting a picture of himself and the WWE superstar to his official Instagram page.
With genuine stars Jon Jones (suspended) and Ronda Rounsey (now in WWE) out of action, White needs all the star power he can get, and Lesnar has proven to be a PPV draw in the past.
"It just goes to show the credibility when a guy like Brock Lesnar's coming back, so it's all about money".
"I wouldn't be shocked if he gave it one more shot".
When asked if taking years between fights hinders Brock Lesnar in the MMA world, Heyman thinks the opposite, and would advise some fighters to do the same.
