Dana White says Brock Lesnar is likely to return for UFC fight

Dana White says Brock Lesnar is likely to return for UFC fight

Or it could be that WWE was upset about the Dana White photo and told Lesnar not to come to the taping.

He wasn't at WWE's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Las Vegas Sunday when Reigns earned a title match for Lesnar's WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34. As soon as The Shield broke up, Roman found himself on the receiving end of a huge push, and he's once again heading to the main event of WrestleMania this year.

The news making its way around the web today has Brock Lesnar ready to leave WWE for UFC when his contract comes up after WrestleMania 34. And with his WWE contract apparently expected to expire in April around the time of WWE's biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, it makes all the more sense that the UFC would be working their way back into the Brock Lesnar sweepstakes at this point in time. White appeared on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio on Tuesday with Kevin Harvick and was asked about the odds of a Lesnar return to the UFC.

The former heavyweight champion may have retired after testing positive for a banned substance surrounding his last fight at UFC 200 that ended with a one year suspension from the sport, but that has never stopped speculation that he may return to compete again.

It's reported that Lesnar is more interested in negotiating his next deal than becoming a "team player" in WWE.

WrestleMania 34 is just 40 days away, and Lesnar is in nearly the same position he found himself in three years ago. Lesnar had been scheduled to appear in Anaheim for several weeks, but was a no-show for the event.

Meltzer was also able to shoot down rumors that Lesnar legitimately no-showed the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, saying that Lesnar's non-appearance at the show was a late rewrite. "If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in WWE, he will fight in WWE", Heyman said.

Lesnar hasn't set foot inside the Octagon since his UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt, which he won via unanimous decision.
