Brock Lesnar left WWE in 2004 and had a couple different ventures during his 8-year hiatus from Vince McMahon and Company including a run in the UFC where he became UFC Heavyweight Champion in the process.
But Lesnar’s 2012 return to WWE didn’t necessarily mean his UFC career had come to a close either because he would later return to the Octagon for UFC 200 to face Mike Hunt. Brock won the fight but it would later be overturned after he tested positive for hydroxyclomifene which is not a steroid but is still a banned substance since it is used in coordination with a steroid cycle.
Dana White recently appeared on Fox Sports’ UFC Tonight where he went through many subjects concerning UFC’s current landscape and remarked about Lesnar’s chances of stepping back inside a UFC cage.
“Anything is possible, yeah anything i possible” Dana White said on UFC Tonight. “Brock has always shown interest in coming over and fighting here in the UFC. I wouldn’t be shocked if he gave it one more shot.”
Lesnar retired from MMA after his UFC 200 test failure so he is out of the USADA testing pool. His one-year suspension from MMA by USASA is on hold as well. He would need to re-enter the testing pool with enough time to get his suspension out of the way if he wants to return to the UFC. However, strange situations have been arranged before in the sports world, so who knows what is truly in line for Brock Lesnar after WrestleMania 34 when his contract is reportedly up for negotiation once more?
