Brock Lesnar interested in UFC return

Published Add your comment

When Brock Lesnar became WWE World Heavyweight Champion, many members of the WWE Universe were critical of the idea of a part-time Superstar holding the most prestigious title in the industry.

Change time

Those who were not the biggest supporters of Lesnar's achievement however, may welcome the comments recently made by UFC President Dana White:

"Brock Lesnar's under contract with the WWE. We have a great relationship with him. He's healthy and he has said that he's interested in fighting again...we'll see what happens."

What White said during a press conference in Las Vegas may all but confirm that he would welcome Lesnar back with open arms, but nothing has been announced yet.

Contract expires

The Champ's last UFC fight was back in December 2011 when he lost to Alistair Overeem, and he is currently tied down in a deal with WWE which runs out at the end of March, soon after the biggest event in the industry - WrestleMania.

After this, several sources have reported that Lesnar may well be a free agent and will be able to make the decision as to whether he wants to continue with WWE or make an iconic return to UFC.

It is hard to deny that age will be a factor at this point in Lesnar's career as he turns 38 next July, meaning a return to the sport would surely have to be made in the near future.

In the duration he has worked part time with WWE, Lesnar has been able to return slowly to full health having suffered with persistent injuries and diverticulitis whilst fighting in UFC.

Lesnar's WWE manager Paul Heyman, who has also been absent whilst his client has made less regular appearances, commented on the sportsman's physical status:

"He's healthy. His body is not spending so much energy fighting off diverticulitis. He's healthy for the first time in years and I think his potential is limitless...he's a once-in-a-lifetime athlete."

It remains to be seen therefore whether or not Lesnar will be making a return to UFC anytime soon. With his current healthy form and the fact that Dana White has always left the door open for a return though, it seems likely that WWE will be seeing a new World Heavyweight Champion soon.
