Like a real-life version of a WWE storyline it appears Brock Lesnar could be returning to Mixed Martial Arts after retiring late last year and returning to the squared-circle for program with John Cena. Fans watching last night’s UFC 146 PPV were treated to the image of Lesnar sitting in the crowd to watch the all-heavyweight lineup. After the event’s conclusion UFC President Dana White was asked about the former champion’s presence and rather than shy away from the subject the colorful executive elaborated on things.
According to White, Lesnar contacted him a week ago and said he wanted to attend the show. The 5-3 fighter also asked to meet with White to presumably discuss business though the two hadn’t conversed prior to the post-event press conference.
White also teased the idea of Lesnar coming back to MMA but wouldn’t go into detail about the matter.
Though Lesnar’s time in the UFC was short he still had a major impact, drawing massive PPV buyrates and beating the likes of Frank Mir, Shane Carwin, and Randy Couture en route to winning the heavyweight title.
Watch the full press conference below with White’s comments on Lesnar coming at around the 12:25 mark:
