In the event that Brock Lesnar does for sure come back to MMA, he could battle for the UFC heavyweight title in his first battle back.
Lesnar, still one of the greatest stars in the game regardless of being right now marked to the WWE, contends at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday. He is required to guard his heavyweight title, and a few savants have theorized that should he lose the belt, he will head back finished to the UFC.
White himself has said a few times in the course of recent months that he is sure the previous UFC titleholder will step foot inside the Octagon once more, and maybe at some point in 2018.
Prior this week, the UFC president said it was a certification that Lesnar would come back to the UFC — it was simply a question of when. White said Friday at the UFC’s 25th Anniversary public interview that Lesnar’s arrival isn’t yet a done arrangement, however that he is still under contract with the head MMA advancement.
“No, that is not 100 percent,” White said. “That is to say, he’s still under contract with the UFC, however we have not marked him to a battle.
“He’s still under contract with us, as well. Despite everything he has battles left on his arrangement.”
Lesnar’s initial step should he declare a UFC return is re-entering the USADA tranquilize testing pool. In spite of the fact that his agreement with the organization never lapsed, he dropped out of the testing pool after his takeoff in summer 2016.
