It seems like Brock Lesnar might be returning to MMA just in time for UFC 200.
According to Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com, Lesnar and the UFC are close to finalizing a deal to bring the back the former UFC heavyweight champion to fight at UFC 200 on July 9th.
The UFC is in serious talks with former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar to have him fight at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas, multiple sources confirmed with MMA Fighting.
Both sides are close to finalizing a deal, and if all goes well, Lesnar’s return to mixed martial arts could be announced imminently.
While talks are progressing well between Lesnar and the UFC, an opponent for Lesnar isn’t close to being finalized. It is unclear at this time who is under consideration.
Lesnar has not been in the cage for 5 years but the UFC looks to make a shitload of money if he does indeed return for their landmark show. While I’m not sure if Brock’s return is even possible considering he’s still under contract with the WWE but is worth noting that Ariel Helwani is a rock solid reporter who wouldn’t make this up.
We’ll have to wait and see how this pans out.
