Brock Lesnar

Rumors have been circulating for month’s that Brock Lesnar is UFC bound.

The former UFC heavyweight champion is serving out the last stint on his WWE contract, but now, according to reports, his reentry to combat may not come.

Jim Ross breaks it down:

“Sources are saying that it looks more promising that Brock Lesnar could well stay with WWE past WrestleMania due to concerns over long term health affects [sic] of competing in MMA specifically concussion oriented issues later in one’s life,” Ross said this week in his blog. “Gain, these are ‘sources’ and how reliable they are can only be judged after WM31 [WrestleMania 31] and following the status of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.”

“One thing is certain,” said Ross. “If UFC believes, and rightfully so in my view, that CM Punk will sell PPV’s for at least his first two fights then what would a healthy Brock Lesnar mean to the UFC brand in a time where no combat sport company has a plethora of bona fide star power that can move the needle on the pay per view business.”
