In the history of contact sports, few athletes have been as dominant as Brock Lesnar , who has reached the top in the NCAA, WWE and UFC. After making a special comeback in 2016 and testing positive for doping, The Beast’s MMA career seemed to be over, but new information suggests Brock Lesnar could return to the UFC.
After receiving a year of suspension by USADA, the company presided over by Dana White dismissed the former Full Weight Champion , making his career as a fighter seem to have come to an end. Lesnar focused on WWE and became a Universal Champion, but his rep Paul Heyman never closed the door to a return to mixed martial arts.

The original plans were to have Lesnar as champion throughout the year, until he could face Roman Reigns in the WrestleMania 34 stellar. The low hearings, blamed for the absence of The Beast, led to a preview of plans For SummerSlam, where everything indicates that it could be involved in a multitudinous fight where in addition to Reigns, would collide with Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe. Even so, a contract renewal with WWE seemed the most likely choice.

“A second person just told me that Brock Lesnar is back for USADA testing. The rumor in WWE is that Brock will leave the title at SummerSlam . “
BJPenn.com adds that since Lesnar’s suspension was retroactive to July 15, 2016, The Incarnate Beast is now fit for competition.
One month into the biggest summer event, this news greatly affects the WWE creative course. Although it is a fact that Lesnar is not as profitable as in the past, he is still one of the most important Superstars of the company, and it is unlikely that WWE will allow him to leave the ship (or the Universal Championship) without first launching a juicy counterproposal To the alleged UFC offer.
On the other hand, the return of Brock Lesnar to UFC would not necessarily imply his abandonment of WWE, since already in UFC 200 competed during one of its long periods away from the quadrilateral of wrestling. However, the chances that the UFC and WWE will agree on a timetable that satisfies all parties are few and, in any case, that would leave Lesnar without enough time to develop long-term programs, much less to become champion.
The upcoming weeks of insurance will be chaotic for WWE, UFC and Brock Lesnar, and SUPERFIGHTS will be informing you about what happens with The Incarnate Beast at the doorsteps of SummerSlam.
