WWE Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar has a dilemma of epic proportions at the moment. Should he stay with WWE and sign a long-term contract? Or should go back to UFC and pick up the lucrative pay-per-view fortunes that are on offer there?
This has been a long running saga for too long and WWE will need an answer sooner rather than later.
But when that answer comes, WWE legendary commentator Jim Ross says the answer will not be what Vince McMahon and the WWE want to hear.
Brock wants out
Rumors of a Brock Lesnar UFC return have been rife for so long now, but never have they been confirmed by such a credible source.
Jim Ross says that he has spoken to sources in high places about Brock Lesnar's contractual situation, and the reports back have not been good news for WWE fans, with Ross revealing that he's been told that Lesnar wants to return to UFC.

“Between you and me, I just can’t see WWE re-signing Brock [Lesnar] under the current contractual stipulations [that he has with WWE right now],” said J.R. “I’ve been told that Brock Lesnar has the itch to get back in the Octagon," Jim Ross revealed, according to reports.
“And if that’s the case, then why would Brock headline WrestleMania 31? Especially if word gets out — and it will — that he’s leaving the company.”
Could still retire
Even though Jim Ross admits his sources have confirmed that Brock Lesnar is desperate for a UFC return, the legendary commentary still questions whether Lesnar might just instead leave WWE to spend more time with his family.
“I don’t know what Brock wants to do [when his WWE deal expires]. He’s made a lot of money. He’s got a healthy, beautiful family. He may want to just hunt. He may want to go back to MMA, go back to UFC for a big money fight or two.”
