Brock Lesnar’s return to WWE, just like every time he switches between entertainment wrestling and the slightly more brutal variety of the UFC, has been a rip-roaring success.
Lesnar is the WWE Universal Champion and by all intents and purposes, appears to be revelling back in the industry he made his name in.
However his manager, the legendary Paul Heyman, has other plans for his client.
Lesnar’s contract with the WWE runs out just after Wrestlemania and apparently the Beast is as ready as he’s ever been to get himself back in the Octagon.
Yes fighting fans, the possibility of Lesnar returning to the UFC is very very real.
Heyman told TMZ Sports:
The time away from UFC actually makes him better because his body gets a chance to heal.
Brock Lesnar’s probably the healthiest fighter to enter UFC if he decides to do that.
Interestingly, his comments haven’t come as the biggest of surprises as the UFC President Dana White has said he wouldn’t be that surprised if Lesnar decided to give MMA another shot.
There were also rumours about Lesnar wanting to take on Jon Jones before the former light-heavyweight tested positive for steroids back in August.
Paul Heyman meanwhile is expected to become the mouthpiece for Ronda Rousey who has famously switched her faltering MMA career for a job with Vince McMahon in the WWE.
Good luck to ’em all. They’re going to need it.
