Brock Lesnar Will Return to UFC, Says Dana White

Ahead of his Universal Championship match with Roman Reigns, UFC's Dana White confirmed that Brock Lesnar will return to the Octagon.

In an interview with FOX Sports: UFC Wednesday night, White was asked point-blank if Lesnar was returning and he replied, "Yea, Brock Lesnar is coming back. I don't know when, but he is."

In a recent interview with Paul Heyman, Lesnar's advocate told Newsweek about the Beast's plans post-WrestleMania 34.

"I don't think it's any secret that Brock is looking to get back into the octagon," Heyman said. "He is obviously eyeballing another fight in UFC. There's no secret. He's posing for pictures with Dana White wearing a UFC shirt in the UFC offices in Las Vegas. That's not a negotiating tactic, Brock Lesnar wants to compete inside of the octagon. There's no leveraging that; it's a fact."

Heyman also believes Lesnar can do both UFC and WWE, like he did in 2016, when he competed in UFC 200 against Mark Hunt and at SummerSlam against Randy Orton six weeks later.

Lesnar's win against Hunt was taken away after the current WWE Universal Champion failed a post-match drug test. If he does make his return to UFC official, Lesnar will have to serve the remainder of his year-long suspension (about six months) and extra drug testing.

WrestleMania 34 will air on April 8 at 7 p.m. EDT.
