Brock Lesnar could make UFC return, says Sonnen

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC fighter Chael Sonnen believes that a new contract with the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) doesn’t completely rule out a possible future return for Brock Lesnar to the promotion.

While like most UFC fans Sonnen was also disappointed that the former All American re-signed with the WWE, he believes that the door for a future return remains open. He also said that Lesnar made it quite it clear when he said that his UFC legacy was over. Sonnen mentioned that the former UFC Heavyweight champion played to the crowd, made it feel he wanted to return to the fighting arena.

Lesnar was on the verge of running down his contract with the WWE and becoming a free agent, ripe for the UFC to pick up and he was being seen in UFC pay per view events recently as well, getting fans salivating at the prospect of his return. However, Brock Lesnar recently announced that he has re-signed with the WWE ending those speculations.

However, according to Sonnen, that means nothing. He said that he knows how close Dana White, the UFC boss and Vince McMahon, the WWE chairman are behind the scenes and this relationship could ensure a possible return for Lesnar.

He went on to add that White is a shrewd guy and the only reason McMahon got Lesnar this time was because he release him to the WWE. While Brock Lesnar has mentioned repeatedly that he is not ready to go through the rigours of combat sports again, he has backtracked on his statement in the past and Sonnen is taking heart from that.

But he said he believes Brock’s time in the Octagon is over but if he did decide to return once more, he could easily do that in the future.

Sat behind UFC boss Dana White at the promotion’s latest pay per view event was former UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and his presence got some tongues wagging about the possibility of his return to the UFC fold once again.

The reigning WWE champion has been in attendance at many other UFC pay per view events in the past but his appearance at UFC 184 raises a lot of promising questions about his future. His contract with the WWE runs out in two months and it might be that Lesnar could make a sensational return to the UFC fold once again.

He left the UFC following his knockout loss to Alistair Overeem and since then, has re-established himself as a prime draw in WWE. But with his contract with the promotion up following Wrestle Mania, Brock Lesnar might just be entertaining the idea of a return to the UFC. Read more »
