Dana White teases Brock Lesnar UFC return

Dana White teases Brock Lesnar UFC return

With UFC 222 fiasco finally resolved, Dana White sat down with the UFC Tonight crew to discuss some of the hottest talking points in the MMA world right now.

Mark Hunt has labelled UFC President Dana White's comments, that Brock Lesnar could return to the Octagon in 2018 as "pathetic". "I wouldn't be shocked if he gave it one more shot".

"It just goes to show the credibility when you've got a guy like Brock Lesnar coming back".

Brock Lesnar hasn't competed inside the Octagon for UFC since he fought against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, as he is now signed with the WWE and his contract with the company isn't expected to expire until WrestleMania in April, or SummerSlam in August. He initially earned a win that night via decision in Las Vegas, but the result was overturned to a no-contest after Lesnar failed a drug test and was suspended for one year.




Lesnar's period of ineligibility ended last July and speculation has been rife that he could one day return to mixed martial arts' premier promotion. Jones is awaiting a final hearing in regards to his own failed drug test a year ago that saw him be stripped of the title once more. It's just a case of finding an opponent for him, and convincing Lesnar once more to make a return to the Octagon. The UFC awarded the championship back to Daniel Cormier, who will challenge Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title later this year at UFC 226.

On rumors of CM Punk fighting at UFC 225: "I don't know if that's where he'll fight, but he's healthy and interested". Punk was defeated by Mickey Gall via rear-naked choke submission in just two minutes and 14 seconds.

For Lesnar to return, he would not only have to declare his intention to fight again, but he would also have to undergo at least six months of drug testing from USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency), while also serving out the remainder of his suspension from the previous positive drug test.
