During a media scrum with reporters ahead of tonight’s UFC 231, UFC President Dana White said that he was told Brock Lesnar “has signed a bunch of new WWE deals” and has no idea if the current Universal champion now wants to come back.
White said that he has not talked to Brock in a while and if he wants to he will just pick up the phone and call him but with Daniel Cormier injured, it doesn’t really matter as the fight Brock wants is against Cormier for the UFC Heavyweight title.
Back in July, Lesnar stormed the Octagon at UFC 226 and confronted Cormier, calling him a “motherfu**er” and shoved him. After the fight, Dana White said that Lesnar would be getting the title shot once his suspension is over.
That suspension ends in the beginning of January 2019 and Lesnar is still in the USADA drug testing pool. He has been tested six times so far since July.
Lesnar is expected to defend the Universal title at the Royal Rumble and will also be part of WrestleMania 35 although it remains to be seen if he’s still champion by that time.
