Morning Report: Dana White says chances are ‘very, very, very good’ that Brock Lesnar returns to the UFC

In 2016, when the UFC needed a draw to juice up their marquee summer event, UFC 200, UFC President Dana White pulled a rabbit out of his hat by negotiating the return of former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Though Lesnar is under contract with the WWE, he was allowed a one-off opportunity to come back to the realm of unscripted combat. But with Lesnar’s WWE contract ending this year, it appears White has a more permanent return in mind for “The Beast.”
Speaking recently with the Happy Hours radio show on SiriusXM Nascar, White was succinct in summing up the odds on a possible Lesnar return to the UFC in 2018.
“They’re very, very, very good.”
Also, just a few days ago, White posted a picture to his Instagram account of himself and Lesnar together, with a smiling emoji as the caption. Taken together, all signs seem to point to a happy homecoming for Lesnar when his WWE contract ends this summer.


Image
Re-signing Lesnar to the UFC would be a huge coup as the promotion struggles to find enough stars to boost up a year that has so far been lackluster.
Of course, even when Lesnar’s contract with the WWE expires, he won’t be eligible to fight right away as he is still under suspension from USADA for failing a drug test in relation to his return bout against Mark Hunt at UFC 200. Though the suspension was handed out over a year ago, Lesnar’s departure from fighting caused it to be frozen until his return, meaning he has another six months on the shelf after re-enrolling in the drug-testing program.
That extra time off might not be a bad things though. The six months would give Lesnar time to knock off some of the MMA rust that has accrued while he’s been focused on professional wrestling and Lesnar’s friend and wrestling mouthpiece Paul Heyman recently suggested that the time off has allowed Lesnar to heal nagging injuries and stay fit.
One things for certain though, if Lesnar does come back, Mark Hunt is going to be furious.

Makes the UFC a joke, suspend and ostracize Jones, and others, but welcome Brock back, GTFO here. Do they REALLY need the white trailer trash demographic that bad? Is WWF really that damn popular?

If I was Miocic, I'd tell Dana to f**k off, and even though DC is company man I see much of the same if not retirement. All around bad move.

I am equal opportunity hater, tis all good ;)

This is some for real next level bullshit. If this dude fight again that makes Anderson Silva GOAT again b/c PEDs obviously matter not to the the UFC brass and the rest of the world.
Jones should be back in 2019.
Vitor should hit the TRT again. Hell, everyone should, have EVERY fighter fail a USADA test then. It does not matter. Be as effective if not more than a walk out.

The new UFC owners want big paydays. Ronda has retired, McGregor is semi retired and Jon Jones is either on tainted cocaine or taking steroids.

So they are going old school and bringing back the original moneymaker in Brock. It sucks coz the guy is old and obviously on roids and will roid again before this fight. But in their chase for big money fights, the UFC will look the other way.

Something I been noticing for quite awhile in your posts. Not particularly this one, but the way you talk about UFC or their fighters in general. I sense you still seem bitter and hateful against successful UFC fighters or UFC's successes...because of Fedor's bad relationship with UFC. Now that's some serious Fedor nuthugging faggotry on your half considering Fedor wasn't drug tested in Pride, Pride was known to fix fights, Fedor fought the most cans, and is the biggest ducker in the game. It must have hurt your heart when you saw Fedor eventually end up getting fucked by a mediocre UFC TUF fighter. :c
