Dana White on odds Brock Lesnar returns to UFC: ‘Very, very, very good’

Published On February 28, 2018 | MMA News

Remember the other day when we showed you that picture of UFC President Dana White and former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar?

And remember when we wondered if it meant something? Or if it just meant that, ya know, Lesnar was in Las Vegas for the WWE’s “Elimination Chamber” pay-per-view, and White lives in Vegas, and they just got together to say hi, simple as that?

Well …

Like it or not, haters, it sounds like there’s a good chance Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) is going to fight in the UFC again.

How good of a chance? “Very, very, very good,” White today told Kevin Harvick on SiriusXM.

Yup. The onetime UFC heavyweight champion, who is back in the WWE now, might make another return to MMA. We most recently saw him at UFC 200 in July 2016. There, he beat Mark Hunt by unanimous decision … but then failed a post-fight drug test for clomiphene. He was suspended for a year and fined $250,000, which was 10 percent of his then-UFC record $2.5 million purse.

A little more than a year ago, Lesnar told the UFC he was retiring from MMA again. He stuck around in the WWE, which had given him permission to fight for the UFC once more at UFC 200.

In the WWE, Lesnar will be back in action at WrestleMania 34 in April, where he will defend his Universal title against Roman Reigns. Reigns got the shot in Vegas on Sunday night with a win at “Elimination Chamber.”
