Former UFC champion wants Brock Lesnar rematch

Former UFC Interim Heavyweight champion, Shane Carwin has said that he wants to be first in line if Brock Lesnar was to return to the UFC.

The two fought back in 2010 at UFC 116, where Lesnar was crowned the Undisputed UFC Heavyweight champion after he made Carwin tap in the second round. Lesnar left the UFC, as a result of a debilitating stomach illness, but he's always been linked with a return to the octagon - and Carwin is ready to greet him.

Speaking to FOXSports.com, "I'm all in," Carwin said of a potential rematch. "All the pain would be worth that."

The pain he's alluding to is the back problems that forced him into retirement last year, after he hadn't fought since losing to Junior dos Santos back in 2011.

Since then, he's got a job as an engineer and co-owns a regional MMA organisations as well but that doesn't mean he wouldn't get back in shape for a rematch but he doesn't expect it to happen.

"He's not coming back," Carwin said about Lesnar. "I don't even know why he would have the desire."

Would Lesnar really come back?

The return of 'The Beast Incarnate', as he's known in the WWE, is something that always swings his head around once every couple months.

Manager and on-screen advocate, Paul Heyman and former WWE commentator, Jim Ross haven't helped matters, with Heyman suggesting that Lesnar thinks he can beat anyone in the heavyweight division and Ross saying that after Wrestlemania, Lesnar is a free agent.

It would be a case of pride if he was to return to the UFC as his deal with the WWE is one of the best in the world and one that many people would grab at.

He's the reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion and makes scarce appearances to the delight of the fans that see him and he'd be 38 at the time of a potential comeback, accounting for his WWE deal ending and training.

It's certainly not very feasible on that basis but something that would eclipse any other potential return.
