Jim Ross, who helped bring Brock Lesnar into the WWE the first-time around, recently posted an update on the possibility of Lesnar returning to the UFC when his contract is up next month.
Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion who has been rumored for a return to MMA after the upcoming WrestleMania pay-per-view he is scheduled to main event.
However, Ross believes that might not happen.
Sources are saying that it looks more promising that Brock Lesnar could well stay with WWE past WrestleMania due to concerns over long term health affects of competing in MMA specifically concussion oriented issues later in one’s life. gain, these are ‘sources’ and how reliable they are can only be judged after WM31 and following the status of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. One thing is certain, if UFC believes, and rightfully so in my view, that CM Punk will sell PPV’s for at least his first two fights then what would a healthy Brock Lesnar mean to the UFC brand in a time where no combat sport company has a plethora of bona fide star power that can move the needle on the pay per view business.
Lesnar last competed inside the Octagon in 2011, losing via first round TKO to Alistair Overeem. He won the heavyweight title in 2008 with a second round finish of Randy Couture.
