Dana White Says Brock Lesnar Is Definitely Going to Return to UFC

Brock Lesnar could be on the verge of returning to mixed martial arts as a UFC fighter.

Per Fox Sports' John Stouffer, UFC President Dana White said on Wednesday's episode of UFC Tonight that Lesnar is "coming back" to the promotion:

Paul Heyman told Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post that Lesnar's final WWE appearance could come against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday.

"It's most likely the answer to that is yes," he said. "The reasons are rather public. Brock is eyeballing a return to the octagon. He's made no secret about it. He's out in Las Vegas at the UFC offices taking a selfie with Dana White wearing a UFC T-shirt. These are not secret negotiations."

The last time Lesnar teased a full-time return to UFC was in 2015, but he ultimately chose to re-sign with WWE one week before WrestleMania 31.

Lesnar did return to the Octagon for a one-off appearance against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016. He originally won the bout via decision, but the result was overturned to a no contest by the United States Anti-Doping Agency for multiple failed drug tests. 

At the age of 40, if Lesnar does return to UFC, this will likely be his last chance to have a sustained run as a top-tier heavyweight fighter in the promotion.
