While it's always fun to imagine the 40-year-old behemoth Brock Lesnar returning to the Octagon for one last battle, it's impossible to ignore the significant roadblocks that are now preventing such a thing.
Talk of Brock Lesnar carrying his gargantuan frame back into the octagon once more is gathering pace.
President Dana White has admitted that a return for Lesnar is "possible", and that the Universal Champion is interested in fighting for him once again. In February 2017, Lesnar announced that he would be retiring from MMA.
That brief Twitter post has people speculating on whether Lesnar will find his way back into a UFC octagon. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in UFC, Brock Lesnar will fight in UFC.
Lesnar is reportedly scheduled to appear on Monday Night Raw, tonight, explaining why he was in Las Vegas, where WWE hosted their Elimination Chamber Pay-Per-View, last night.
That victory over was overturned to a no contest following the discovery that he'd failed drug tests before and after the landmark card.
Still, a return to the UFC would not be without risk even for someone as skilled and as tough as Lesnar is. While the picture has raised a few eyebrows, fans should take it with a grain of salt as Lesnar is now in negotiations with the WWE and what better way to improve terms in the new contract then to get a photo with the president of a competing organization. Or will he return to the WWE ring and pretend to kick ass a few times a year?
Everyone knows that Lesnar would be welcomes back into the UFC in a heartbeat - and that'd he'd be one of the most dominant fighters. At the end of the day, if Lesnar wants to fight again under the UFC banner, the promotion will nearly certainly welcome him with open arms.
