The rumor mill is churning when it comes to Brock Lesnar’s potential return to UFC.
Lesnar was photographed with UFC president Dana White on Sunday, the same day as the Elimination Chamber premier show, and one night later he missed Monday Night Raw as a reported “no-show” with details still lacking on what exactly went down.
Speaking on Sirius radio, White said there is a “very, very, very good chance” Lesnar returns to UFC:
WWE apparently has a “backup plan” for WrestleMania should Lesnar or Reigns be forced out of the picture.
Lesnar has wrestled just over an hour in the near-year he’s held the WWE Universal championship, causing criticism after Seth Rollins beat that mark in just one Monday Night Raw episode.
UFC stars have called out Lesnar over the past year, with Francis Ngannou saying he’s stronger than Lesnar and Jon Jones challenging the Beast Incarnate to a showdown.
It all depends on if Lesnar has been in the USADA testing pool this whole time. If he hasn’t, he’ll have to serve out his suspension from UFC 200, when he tested positive for a banned substance in his win over Mark Hunt.
If he has, he may already be cleared for a return to the Octagon.
