Paul Heyman says Brock Lesnar wants one more go in the UFC

In an interview with Newsweek, Paul Heyman said that Brock Lesnar is looking to get back in the UFC and pointed out that at this point, it’s no secret.

Heyman said that visiting the UFC offices in Vegas last month and posing for photos with Dana White wearing a UFC shirt was not a negotiating tactic. “Brock Lesnar wants to compete inside of the Octagon. There’s no leveraging that, it’s a fact.”

The Universal champion’s contract with WWE ends right after WrestleMania but the company can opt to keep him until August. When the same situation presented itself during WrestleMania 31 week, Lesnar opted to stay with WWE.

Despite that, he still returned to the Octagon and fought Mark Hunt at UFC 200, getting the win, a win which was ultimately overturned due to his failed drug tests.

Can he do it again? “Brock Lesnar fought Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and, six weeks later, main evented SummerSlam against Randy Orton,” Heyman said. “Brock Lesnar can do both and he has proven that time and time again.”
