Brock Lesnar return chances 'very, very good,' says Dana White

Brock Lesnar return chances 'very, very good,' says Dana White

Lesnar's contract with the WWE expires in April and his on-screen manager Paul Heyman recently hinted that we could very well see the 40-year-old back inside the Octagon.

The timing of White's comments, however, are very important. He's set to face Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 34.

Lesnar has been retired from MMA since February 2017 after being banned by the US Anti-Doping Agency in 2016 for two failed drug tests.

Of course, Lesnar's contract with WWE coming to an end also means he's in the midst of contract negotiations and this exact same scenario has unfolded before. But earlier this week, while WWE was hosting its Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Las Vegas, its champion was photographed with UFC president Dana White. He stuck around in the WWE, which had given him permission to fight for the UFC once more at UFC 200.

Who knows what Lesnar has in store now that his deal is nearly up?

"If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in WWE, he will fight in WWE". Do you think that Lesnar legitimately skipped out on the show as a negotiating tactic?

Many fans were against the idea of Reigns being the top guy in the company, while there were also people who have grown exhausted of Lesnar being a part-time performer but also a full-time champion.

It's obvious Rousey is still a work in progress as a WWE performer, but having Stephanie as an antagonist will certainly make things easier for her as she transitions from the Octagon to the wrestling ring.

If Lesnar decides to leave WWE and pursue one more run with UFC, he wouldn't be able to fight right away.

Neither Lesnar nor Heyman were in Anaheim last night, although they were advertised and a segment with both of them was written into the script of the show.

There's no doubt that any return to UFC would be a big draw for the promotion with Lesnar's reach going beyond the sport in a way only Conor McGregor's now does. If he wanted to compete again in UFC, he would have to re-enter the USADA's drug-testing pool and serve the remaining six months of a suspension he received for testing positive for a banned substance before his fight with Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
