It's no secret that Brock Lesnar's deal with WWE is nearing an end, and MMA Fighting's Dave Meltzer reported that he and Vince McMahon don't appear close on completing an extension. Should Lesnar and WWE part ways, a return to the UFC wouldn't be out of the question for the former heavyweight champion.

Lesnar fanned the flames by making an appearance at UFC 184 on Saturday night. Dave Sholler, UFC's vice president of public relations, snapped a photo of Lesnar talking with UFC President Dana White:

"I don't know [why he's here,]" said White regarding the reason for Lesnar's presence, per Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole.

Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reported that the 37-year-old was a guest of Lorenzo Fertitta.

Lesnar fought seven times in the UFC, compiling a 4-3 record. His last bout came in December 2011, which was a loss to Alistair Overeem.

Lesnar is scheduled to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 31, which takes place on March 29. It's doubtful the UFC would announce any sort of contract with him before that, in the event the two sides reach an agreement.
