Brock Lesnar

Rumors have been swirling as of late that Brock Lesnar may be making a return to MMA after his WWE contract is up next year.

There has been tons of talk regarding Lesnar’s return, and who he would face if he does choose to make a comeback.

UFC President Dana White said recently that Lesnar would never sign with Bellator (See that HERE), but that hasn’t stopped Bellator President Scott Coker from being interested in a sit down with the former UFC champ.

“That’s a good question. We’ve had a conversation internally and it’s worth a conversation, but that’s something we’ll pursue maybe later into January or maybe February. But I would say, look, any fighter that’s out there or any star athlete; not star athlete in the sense of a baseball player, but like a Brock Lesnar, or somebody that really wants to fight, we’re going to have a conversation with them. Because if they can move the needle, we’re going to want them on Spike TV. I think that he’s a big needle mover. There have been several years that have passed and I think that he still has the WWE limelight. So, I think that he still has a lot of, you know, star power, but to come back and say, ‘Hey, I want to train, I want to commit, I want fight’, that’s going to be a big commitment on his part. We haven’t had a conversation yet, but we’d like to at some point.”
