Brock Lesnar’s Return To The UFC To Fight Jon Jones Is Reportedly ‘Imminent’

Rumors about Brock Lesnar’s return to the UFC are starting to heat up again. Today, Sports Illustrated reported that the “Beast Incarnate” is interested in a super fight with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones sometime next year.

Via Sports Illustrated has learned that Lesnar’s return to the UFC is imminent, and he will fight Jones as well as fulfill his WWE obligations at the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 34. This all affects the upcoming SummerSlam, as the likelihood that Lesnar keeps the WWE Universal championship, or takes any punishing moves, is all but dimmed, which is another reason he will be hidden in this Fatal 4-Way with Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, and Samoa Joe.

Lesnar will not be eligible to fight until six months after he re-enters USADA pool for drug testing, which makes a January return unlikely. If the reports about Lesnar’s return are true, then a Summer fight with Jones makes the most sense considering he’s still signed with the WWE until April of 2018.
