There has been nonstop chatter for the past several months that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (pictured) might return to the world of mixed martial arts when his WWE contract expires.
While Lesnar hasn’t said anything publicly about coming back to the cage, because everybody knows how much he despises talking to people, his attendance at UFC 184 on Saturday night in Los Angeles certainly spoke volumes on the speculation front.
UFC president Dana White, for one, wasn’t saying much of anything about re-signing the biggest mainstream star to ever compete in the octagon.
“Brock is a fan of the UFC,” White said at the post-fight press conference of why Lesnar was in attendance. “He’s under contract with the WWE right now. When his contract runs out, I’m sure he’ll call me.”
There have been reports that contract extension talks between Lesnar and the WWE have stalled, which has left “The Baddest Man on the Planet” searching for other avenues to make money. Who says you can’t go home again?
Lesnar, who turns 38 in July, hung up his MMA gloves after getting TKO’d by Alistair Overeem over four years ago at UFC 141. He left the game with a 5-3 professional record, with all but one of his scraps coming inside the big leagues.
Four of Lesnar’s seven UFC fights were of the championship variety.
