On Tuesday night, on Kevin Harvick‘s SiriusXM NASCAR Radio show; the President of the UFC, Dana White, said there is a “very, very, very, good” chance that Brock Lesnar returns to the UFC arena. These comments came just days after Lesnar, the former Golden Gopher and Minnesota Viking, was pictured with the business savant.

Additionally, we are only a week removed from White telling TMZ “I’d like to see him come back. When Brock Lesnar won the championship, it was fun.”
The 40 year-old
North South Dakota native won a UFC title in November, 2008. Since then, the Maroon and Gold’s former D1 wrestling national champion has bounced between MMA and professional wrestling. With his current WWE contract set to expire in April, the return of the tank of all tanks, to the Octagon, is trending in the right direction.
In the event he does make a comeback, Lesnar will be subject to an immediate six-month suspension due to his use of banned substances prior to UFC 200. April, 2018 + Six Months = October, 2018.
For what I’m assuming will be a decent sized army of Lesnar-haters, let the negative comments fly. Whether you want to call him a cheater, state he is too old, or anything in-between, one thing won’t change: Brock Lesnar puts asses in the seats.
To back that statement up, I’ll use myself as an example. My last evening centered around a UFC fight was when Conor McGregor beat Eddie Alvarez. My next evening centered around a UFC fight will be when “The Notorious” or Brock Lesnar……. maybe Jon Jones is back in the octagon. Whichever happens first.
Despite now craving Lesnar, I’m f*cken feening to see McGregor’s return. In my eyes, the Irish phenom is currently the most electric athlete on the face of the earth.
Apparently, like the reports surrounding Lesnar, The UFC’s only individual to ever simultaneously hold title belts in multiple weights classes, is getting ready to feed my addiction. Yessss!!
What if they fought on the same card? Talk about a spectacle. A double main-event that started with Lesnar victory and closed with another McGregor knockout would be euphoric.
