According to the bossman, Dana White, it sounds like we will definitely be seeing former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE star, Brock Lesnar returning to the octagon at some point.
White isn’t the only one who believes so as multiple other fighters and analysts alike have been stating their belief on whether or not he returns after his WWE contract expires in (reportedly) April.
But this doesn’t mean that everyone is okay with him coming back and that includes fighters and heavyweight fighters at that. Most recently, the ‘Skyscraper’ Stefan Struve who told MMA Junkie during the UFC 222 media day how he feels about the possibility of Lesnar returning:
“No [he shouldn’t fight again] he doesn’t belong here in my opinion. He got caught, and just look at that guy. He’s a physical specimen, but it doesn’t make sense. The way they brought him in with the exemption for him not having to do the testing for the four months when he came back, that’s ridiculous. You bring someone back, a guy who looks like him, and he doesn’t have to get tested, and then fights? Mark Hunt, he’s in the right. Of course he’s upset with that. I get why they’ll bring him back, because he brings pay-per-views. But also he brings a certain image that’s…not good for the sport.”
The seven-foot-tall Dutchman, Struve is a nineteen fight UFC veteran and has been with the organization since 2009. Never one to put on a boring performance, Struve is set to make his twentieth UFC appearance this Saturday at UFC 222 against former UFC champion and heavyweight icon, Andrei ‘the Pitbull’ Arlovski.
What do you think of Struve’s comments?
