As WWE’s WrestleMania 34 nears, so does the end of universally renown draw and former WWE and UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar’s (5-3) contract.
ESPN’s Greg Rosenstein first reported that there is a ‘very, very, very good’ chance of Brock Lesnar coming back to the UFC according to company president Dana White.
Brock’s return is desired by basically anyone that has a relatively high IQ because the current state of the heavyweight division is delayed and redundant. Not to mention most of the current top 10 heavyweights are seasoned veterans who are not nearly as active as top contenders in other weight classes.
But the return of one of the biggest draws in MMA history would certainly turn the heavyweight division and the fight game as a whole upside down.
For all the mainstreamers that will give guys like Skip Bayless the time of day when he’s discussing Mixed Martial Arts that think Lesnar is “washed up” or “old” or just not a draw anymore, listen up.
Brock Lesnar is arguably the most decorated figure in the history of combat sports.
Lesnar is a former NCAA Division I Heavyweight Champion in collegiate wrestling.
He is the youngest wrestler in the history of the company to win the WWE championship at just 25 years old.
He won the UFC Heavyweight Championship in his fourth MMA fight, and after all that he went back to the “fake stuff” after his loss to Alistair Overeem (43-16) in 2011 and won a couple more world championships in the WWE.
Then he came back to the UFC in 2016, and clomiphene in his system or not he dominated Mark Hunt (13-12) for their entire fight after five years away from the sport.
All heavyweight contenders are currently waiting for UFC light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier to fight division king and the baddest man on the planet Stipe Miocic for his heavyweight strap in July 2018.
But the only thing that can hold over the fight fans until then is Brock Lesnar, and his contract is up soon.
