We are just a couple weeks away from WrestleMania and Brock Lesnar is scheduled to defend the WWE Universal Championship in the main event but that’s not the only news surrounding him right now. The Lesnar to UFC rumors have picked up again and Dana White’s latest Twitter post is going to get a lot of people talking.
White posted a photo of himself with Lesnar, who is on the west coast this weekend because he will be in Los Angeles for Raw. Lesnar had previously shut the door on a possible UFC return but has seemingly had a change of heart in recent months. There was talk of a Lesnar vs. Jon Jones dream fight but that was put on ice when he was suspended after testing positive for turinabol after his fight with Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.
However, Jones is scheduled to meet with the California State Athletic Commission this week and his manager said that he is “95% sure” that Jones will fight again in 2018. If that is true, then the Lesnar vs. Jones match could happen later this year. White said that he spoke with Jones recently and it was the first time they had spoken since the failed drug test.
Lesnar’s WWE deal expires sometime after WrestleMania but he would have to put his name back into the USADA drug testing pool so he can complete the remaining 6 months of his drug suspension.
Check out the photo of Lesnar and White below:
