Dana White Continues To Tease Brock Lesnar's Potential UFC Return

03 March 2018

Despite the obstacles in Lesnar's way and a mirky recent past in the UFC, White is hopeful the former heavyweight champion will return to the sport this year.

This coming Monday night's edition WWE Raw will take place at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI.

WrestleMania 34 is now set for April 8 in New Orleans. In an earlier interview with TMZ Sports, White said he'd like to see Lesnar back with the UFC. It's not hyperbole to say Strowman put on one of the most dominant performances in WWE history. McMahon also had to hear the mixed reaction that former UFC star Ronda Rousey had been getting since signing with WWE in January.

Lesnar would have to re-enter the USADA's Drug Testing Protocal for a UFC return, and that would also mean he would have to serve the last six months of his suspension.

Who knows what Lesnar has in store now that his deal is nearly up?

Lesnar was in Las Vegas for the WWE's Elimination Chamber event over the weekend and he posed for a picture with White - a Vegas resident - during his visit.

Brock Lesnar is one of the most frightening men on the planet.

What followed was the eternal WWE debate, was this a shoot or a work? The current angle between Lesnar and Reigns has been building for nearly a year, as Brock Lesnar has defeated every other challenger for the Universal Championship ever since he won it at WrestleMania 33 in a match against Goldberg. That's no surprise, considering Lesnar's presence on the UFC 200 card was a big reason why it was able to reportedly draw more than 1 million pay-per-view buys.

Lesnar hasn't competed since UFC 200 in July 2016, retiring months after twice testing positive for a banned substance prior to his fight against Mark Hunt - test results that weren't revealed until after the fact.

We're not talking Mayweather money or anything close, but it would be more than Lesnar could bring in at the twilight of his WWE career, at age 41, and it could be a fitting cap to a career that has included an NCAA championship, multiple WWE title runs and a UFC heavyweight title.
