After a two year hiatus from the sport of MMA, it now appears that it is possible former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar could make a return to the Octagon.
MMAFighting.com reports that Lesnar will be in attendance at UFC 168 in Las Vegas this week and when asked about whether there could be business discussions in the works, a grinning UFC President Dana White told the media Thursday that he didn’t know.
“I honestly don’t know,” he said, repressing a grin like a man who just might know more than he wanted to say. “Honestly?” somebody goaded. “Honestly,” White said, “I don’t know.”
Although purely speculation at this point, it could be a big help for the UFC after former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre vacated his title and decided to leave the sport behind for a while. Lesnar was consistently one of the top PPV draws for the promotion.
