Brock Lesnar has a few months left on his WWE contract. It’s no secret that Dana White would like to see him back in the Octagon. TMZ Sports caught up with Lesnar’s friend and advocate Paul Heyman and asked him about the possibility that Lesnar could return to UFC. He said, “I think Brock Lesnar does whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in UFC, Brock Lesnar will fight in UFC. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in WWE, he will fight in WWE. Ask Braun Strowman, ask Randy Orton, ask The Undertaker. Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do.”
“The time away [from fighting in the UFC] actually makes him better because his body gets a chance to heal.” Heyman noted that a lot of fighters are wearing their bodies down in training camps and during weight cuts. He added, “Brock Lesnar is probably the healthiest fighter to enter UFC if he decides to do that.”
He was also asked about interest in advocating for Ronda Rousey. Listen to his response in the video below:
Speaking of Rousey, she will be inducted into the International Sports Hall Of Fame on March 3rd at The Arnold Classic Expo in Columbus, Ohio. She will be inducted alongside Bas Rutten, “The Amazing Race” host and bungee jumper Phil Keoghan and powerlifting champions Dr. Terry Todd and Dr. Jan Todd.
Rousey will be at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-per view to “officially” sign her Monday Night Raw contract. In reality, there was some sort of deal in place months ago because she’s been training at the Performance Center for quite some time.
