Report: Brock to return to the UFC in 2012

source: twitter.com
 

Mike Sawyer, co-Host of Tough Talk on wrestlingobserver.com is saying that Brock Lesnar will return to the UFC this year.

Mike Sawyer ‏@TOUGHTALKMMA
Had an interesting conversation with someone VERY close to all the Brock Lesnar stuff. He is fighting THIS YEAR in UFC & not Frank Mir...

Mike Sawyer ‏@TOUGHTALKMMA
plans change all the time, but the name I was told isn't Roy.

Brian ‏@FrontRowBrian
If it's not Mir fighting Lesnar in UFC later this year as @TOUGHTALKMMA reports, who is it? @roynelsonmma? @stefanstruve? @ShaneCarwin II?

Mike Sawyer ‏@TOUGHTALKMMA
one of the above.

Mike Sawyer ‏@TOUGHTALKMMA
My comment on Brock came from a conversation I had with someone who works in UFC. Brock working both sides (WWE). Nothing official. Period.

If Brock does come back he really should fight someone lower-tier like Struve or Shaube, but that probably won't happen because they're not big names. There's just WAY too much money to be made if he fights a bigger name.

He will only be back if he gets an ''easy'''fight like Struve. I personally think he might be able to steamroll Struve but you can never really count that kid out.Anyways it would be an interesting fight in terms of cash for Struve as well. And it will give Brock more status in the WWF.I personally thought Brock got a lot of hate that was undeserved and i would would not mind seeing him back in the UFC. It is not the highest on my list of priorities (i think i am more excited for the Alvarez signing...if it ever happens) but still.

Brock is good for the sport and I hope he comes back. That being said, I hope his health is ok... as everyone knows it hasn't been since his first bout of diverticulits. (sp.?)

I wanna see Brock destroy Nelson. I can't believe the arrogance on that dude. He talks like he's delusional.

I could see Brock getting a gimmie fight, some favorable matchup, some jujitsu guy with poor takedown defense and shitty striking (Struve?), this would make everybody happy:-Dana White because Brock brings in ppv moniez.-Vince McMahon because Brock winning in the UFC would raise his stock and image in WWE.
