It has been rumored for some time now that Brock Lesnar could be leaving the WWE after WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans later this year to return and fight once more inside the Octagon for UFC.
The Beast's contract with the WWE is expected to expire after WrestleMania this year, but some reports have stated WWE could re-work his contract so that he's signed with the company until SummerSlam. Either way, Lesnar's current contract with WWE will expire in 2018.
When it does expire, many people believe he will make a switch to compete in UFC once more before it is too late, as he has been called out for fights against the likes of Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou over the past year.
Paul Heyman was recently interviewed by TMZ Sports and talked about various topics including possibly of Lesnar returning to the UFC and if the time away could hurt his chances of making a comeback to the UFC.
The Beast's advocate said that Lesnar will do want he wants to do and that the time away from the UFC will actually make him one of the healthiest fighters in the company as he isn't wearing his body down through training camps.
Heyman said: "I think Brock Lesnar does whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in UFC then Brock Lesnar will fight in UFC. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in WWE then he will fight in WWE. Ask Braun Strowman. Ask Randy Orton. Ask THE UNDERTAKER. Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do."
"The time away actually makes him better because his body gets a chance to heal. The problem with all these UFC fighters is, and they are all fantastic athletes, top of the world, they all wear their bodies down in these training camps. All these guys that are cutting weight are destroying their bodies. Brock Lesnar is probably the healthiest fighter to enter UFC if he decides to do that. He’s always ready. Always."
Heyman sent out a tweet to follow up the interview on his Twitter account:
It will be a shame if Lesnar does leave WWE for UFC, as he is one of the best larger-than-life superstars the company has had over the past couple of years. He's exceptional inside the ring as well despite his size.
It is expected that The Beast will drop his Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34 to Roman Reigns later this year, which could set the wheels in motion for his departure. Hopefully, WWE is able to work out his contract to keep around until SummerSlam if he does decide to make a UFC comeback.
