Lesnar's new WWE deal permits at least 1 UFC fight

Lesnar's new WWE deal permits at least 1 UFC fight

As seen at WrestleMania 34 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana on the WWE Network, Brock Lesnar successfully retained his Universal Title over Roman Reigns in the main event. Lesnar's next appearance is scheduled for the Greatest Royal Rumble event, where he will compete against Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match for the Universal Title at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27.

A return to the UFC for Brock Lesnar is still possible despite re-signing with the WWE.

But the WWE is full of surprises, that's the nature of the business and they announced that their prizefighter had signed a new contract with the company.

Meltzer also reported that Lesnar and WWE chairman Vince McMahon "kept the Wrestlemania 34 result secret from nearly everyone, including the top executives and the writing team".

Speaking on UFC Tonight last week, Dana White said that the 5-3 fighter will be returning.

Lesnar informed USADA of his retirement from MMA in 2016 after failing two drug tests before and after his fight with Mark Hunt at UFC 200. "He's still under contract with us, he still has fights on his deal".

While we don't know what's in store for Lesnar's long-term future, we at least know that he's not done in WWE just yet, and that a return to the UFC will be happening before long.

Lesnar will then need to have been in the USADA testing pool for a minimum of six months, as per USADA's regulations, making it impossible for the heavyweight to make his UFC comeback this year.
