Paul Heyman Posts A Small Update On Brock Lesnar's WWE Status

Adjust Comment Print

The last time Lesnar had a major contract coming up with WWE, rumors began swirling that he was plotting a return to the UFC before he ultimately re-signed with the professional wrestling organization on a new multi-year deal.

"They're very, very, very good", White answered when asked by Kevin Harvick on the chances that Lesnar comes back to the UFC. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in UFC, Brock Lesnar will fight in UFC. It was noted that someone came up with the idea when WWE still had enough time to tell Lesnar and Heyman not to come to Anaheim for this week episode of Monday Night Raw. Overeem on the other hand could not only spoil Brock Lesnar's UFC return, but also prove why he in fact is the #2 ranked heavyweight and perhaps place himself in title-fight talks once again after losing to Francis Ngannou via KO (punch) at UFC 218.

The Lesnar-Reigns main event is a rematch from WrestleMania 31, notable for where Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank contract mid-match to win the WWE Championship.

Church leaders compared the measures to laws "enacted against the Jews during dark periods in Europe". He also set up a special committee to settle the matter with the heads of the churches.

White posted a photo on social media over the weekend with Lesnar, who was wearing a UFC T-shirt. Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision, but that result was ultimately overturned to a no contest due to the failed drug test. It seems very odd or unlikely for that matter that WWE wouldn't have all the bases covered with Lesnar's schedule on a match they been planning for almost a year. In an interview with TMZ Sports, the UFC president said he would "like to see" the promotion's former heavyweight champion make a return to mixed martial arts. Lesnar would have to re-enter the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) testing pool for at least six months.
