The WWE universe might have been a bit shocked to see Brock Lesnar in the stands at UFC 146 on Saturday night in Las Vegas. It got many wondering, is Lesnar going to return to the UFC?

The presence of Lesnar at the event was enough to get reporters asking the question to UFC President Dana White after the event. 

MMAWeekly.com reports that White was asked why Lesnar was at the fights, to which he responded, “I don’t know, apparently now he’s a big fan." 

"He was here; I think that says it all.” White was reportedly smiling while saying this.

The most intriguing part of the report came when a comeback was brought up to White,

When asked directly if Lesnar was contemplating a comeback to fighting, White admitted that he hadn’t talked with him about a return but answered ‘possibly, yeah’ when discussing a potential MMA rebirth for the one time heavyweight champion.

This situation might get very interesting, especially considering that White said that Lesnar had texted him to meet up and talk after the post-fight press conference on Saturday night.

Lesnar appeared at the event that showcased a number of fighters that he competed with while in the UFC. Might he have been there to simply watch the fights or scout them as a part of a comeback?

Is it possible that he returns to the UFC while still a part of the WWE? 

It will be interesting to know if there was a clause in his contract with the WWE prohibiting from fighting in the UFC while still under contract with the WWE. It would create some incredible storylines, however. 


Nevertheless, if Lesnar is contemplating a return, it would be extremely difficult to train and fulfill the obligations of both organizations. After his contract is up around WrestleMania, if he is not yet back in the UFC by then, Lesnar might be able to give a comeback a bit more thought.

It had to be tempting sitting in the crowd and seeing the heavyweight belt around the waist of someone else and not being able to do anything about it.

It seems as though there could certainly be a return happening in the future. 

After all, Lesnar appears to have no problem leaving an organization and coming back for more.
