Brock Lesnar Trying To Get Clearance To Fight For UFC While Under WWE Contract?

Current WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar, who walked out on the company at Monday’s RAW television show in Nashville, Tennessee, is reportedly trying to negotiate a deal that will allow him to fight for the UFC while under contract to WWE.

This past Monday, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar was at the arena for the WWE RAW television show, which he was advertised to work, but ended up leaving the building before the show due to a dispute with WWE officials.

It’s said that Lesnar was actually in the building when the show itself started, but left after a business disagreement with Vince McMahon, which was said to involve negotiations for Lesnar to sign a new WWE contract.

There’s some who claim that the negotiations included Lesnar wanting to be able to fight for the UFC while still under contract to WWE. Regardless of whether or not that speculation is true, it’s said that the issue of UFC had nothing to do with Lesnar leaving the arena on Monday.

It’s said that the issues that led to Lesnar leaving the building on Monday were only related to WWE’s offer and the terms of a potential new deal.

As far as where things stand now, it’s believed that while the issue is still outstanding, it could be settled at any time now. Lesnar’s camp and WWE are at a key impasse at the moment, and neither side wants to back down.

If nothing else, Lesnar will likely show up for the remaining dates on his current WWE deal, as skipping them would be a major breach of his contract. Lesnar is currently scheduled to return on the March 9th edition of WWE RAW in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is also scheduled to work the March 23rd RAW in Los Angeles, the WrestleMania 31 event in Santa Clara and the RAW the night after WrestleMania.
