Brock Lesnar is still plotting his return to the UFC, even after regaining the WWE universal title at Crown Jewel on Nov. 2.
Per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Wrestling Inc.'s Marc Middleton), the UFC is targeting Lesnar to headline its March 2 show against heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
The UFC has teased Cormier vs. Lesnar, with the champ calling out the WWE star after his win over Stipe Miocic in July:
Meltzer added that Lesnar is expected to work at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Jan. 27. It's unknown at this point who Lesnar's opponent at that show will be, though there will be a "significant angle" moving forward that doesn't include Braun Strowman after the two wrestled at Crown Jewel.
Lesnar's return to mixed martial arts has been an ongoing storyline on WWE television dating back to SummerSlam. Paul Heyman referenced it multiple times in the build to that show, saying The Beast would take the championship with him to the UFC.
