After defending his WWE title, could we see Brock Lesnar back in the UFC after his contract expires? There’s hope

At WWE’s 2018 Royal Rumble, in a triple threat match with Braun Stroman and Kane, Brock Lesnar was able to successfully defend his WWE championship, springing up many questions regarding his possible future in the UFC. While things remain uncertain, there is still hope for the giants return to the octagon.

A report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter says Lesnar’s current contract with the WWE contains a clause which allows the organization to extend his contract to August, meaning Lesnar would be present for the up-and-coming WrestleMania event in April, and possible events beyond the Super Bowl of wrestle event.

Looking ahead, the only possible way we can see Lesnar back in the UFC, is if he decides to finish out his WWE contract and not re-sign, re-entre into the USADA drug testing pool, and get contract negations done with the UFC. Of course things can get complicated, but keeping things short and easy, that’s a basic step-by-step action plan for a possible return to combat sports.

Brock Lesnar last competed in the UFC at UFC 200, in July of 2016. Following his victory over his opponent, Mark Hunt, news broke that Lesnar, the former Heavyweight champion failed not one, but two drug tests leading into his bout. Lesnar tested positive for the anti-estrogenic agent Hydroxy-clomiphene:

Lesnar’s first failed test was taken on June 28th, and the second was taken the day of the event. Lesnar was fined $250,000 and suspended for one year for the USADA violation. Following the breaking, and to some, not shocking news, Mark Hunt, current HW contender filed a lawsuit against Brock Lesnar and the UFC, in hopes of a cleaner sport and stricter penalties for failed drug tests. This is still a work in progress.

We know a date (roughly), we just don’t know what Lesnar’s plans are for his own future, however, many fans sit in hopes of a octagon return for the freak of an athlete. Yes he defended his WWE title, so his return may not be as soon as some have hoped, but things are getting interesting in the UFC’s HW division, and looking very welcoming for the former champion. While chances of his return have decreased with the more recent failed drug test of Jon Jones after calling him out following his KO victory of Daniel Cormier, only time will tell, and the clock’s ticking.
