Following a loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 140, former champion Brock Lesnar announced his retirement from mixed martial arts.

Since that time the former NCAA champion has returned to the world of professional wrestling where he signed a new deal to compete in the WWE.

But on Saturday night, Lesnar was in the crowd for UFC 146 and spoke to both UFC president Dana White and co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta. So what was the reason for Lesnar’s appearance at UFC 146?

“I don’t know, apparently now he’s a big fan,” White said following the fights.

Reading more into the situation, Lesnar being at the fights might mean more than him just being a casual fan enjoying the sport.

“He was here; I think that says it all,” White said with a wry smile.

When asked directly if Lesnar was contemplating a comeback to fighting, White admitted that he hadn’t talked with him about a return, but answered “possibly, yeah” when discussing a potential MMA rebirth for the one time heavyweight champion.

There appears to be more to this story than meets the eye, but White would only reveal so much on Saturday night.

One thing is for sure, quite a few eyebrows are sure to raise with the prospect of Brock Lesnar possibly returning to the UFC for one more run in the heavyweight division.
