Rumor: Lesnar may return to the UFC

 

Brock Lesnar was the biggest PPV draw in the history of the UFC, responsible for some of the promotion's largest buy numbers. Lesnar retired from the sport in late 2011 after consecutive losses to Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem, but rumors have been circulating about a possible return:

This week there were rumors that heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar would attend Saturday night’s rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman. Exactly why Lesnar is coming to Las Vegas for the fight has become a thing of speculation, but as usual people are beginning to whisper that maybe the UFC has something up its sleeve. 

During Thursday’s post-press conference media scrum, UFC president Dana White was asked point blank if the UFC would take the opportunity to talk business with Lesnar. 

"I honestly don’t know," he said, repressing a grin like a man who just might know more than he wanted to say. "Honestly?" somebody goaded.  "Honestly," White said, "I don’t know."

He was on Monday Night Raw this week and made his intentions known that he was going for the WWE Title so he will certainly be there until after Wrestlemania (He is rumoured to be facing either The Rock or The Undertaker at Mania in April after facing Mark Henry at the Royal Rumble in Jan and Cena / Orton at the Elimination Chamber in Feb.If he is coming back to the UFC he will fight in June in between Wrestlemania (April) and SummerSlam (Aug).

Ha! This reminds me I recall about a year ago HH was really pushing Frank Mir as a legit contender as a late replacement to face JDS.   Everyone was calling for Mark Hunt vs JDS b/c of the styles make fights(and the fans ended up being RIGHT wanting that fight), but instead UFC made Frank Mir vs JDS.   HH was talking inside info like Frank is more serious than ever, looking great, yadda yadda. I thought he was just schilling so I asked him to put his screen name on the line, he picks Frank Mir, I picked JDS. He accepted the bet actually, however when JDS won, he put the onus on ME to send an email requesting for someone else's screen name(his) to be changed.  The email was provided for him to send it, but he never did.   Many people forget about that, obviously I can't b/c I was directly involved. But I am really starting to wonder now if his frank mir talk and brock lesnar talk was all just hype to get people interested in the upcoming ppv.

I disagree... No one knows if Brock really is coming back or not. It is 100% possible that Dana did reach out to him and I would actually say it's more then likely Dana did reach out to him with GSP being out and now Silva being out all of 2014.
