Dana White Believes Brock Lesnar Will Return To UFC, Comments On CM Punk & Ronda Rousey

The Beast's contract with WWE is up in three months...

UFC President Dana White believes current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will return to the octagon in the future.

The Beast's contract with WWE is up in three months time, with many in the professional wrestling game believing he'll drop the title at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans before heading for pastures new.

Appearing in the New York Post, White was concise in his thoughts on whether the former Heavyweight Champion of the world would ever fight for his promotion again. “I think he’ll give it one more run,” he said. “I just think Brock loves to fight.”

Lesnar's last fight took place in July 2016 when he defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200. However, it was changed to a no contest afterwards with Brock receiving a one-year suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission for failing two tests for the banned substances clomiphene and hydroxyl-clomiphene.

According to the same article, White believes that former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey won't try for another MMA fight - adding a little more fuel to the fire that she is set to head to WWE very soon. Rousey was spotted leaving dinner with WWE head honcho Triple H recently, with an appearance in the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match seemingly inevitable.

White also said that he is ready to give former WWE Champion CM Punk another shot in the UFC. He doesn't have a date or an opponent in mind, however, but is "working on it."

Punk's UFC career didn't get off to the best of starts in September 2016 when he was tapped out in 2:14 by Mickey Gall. Despite this, Dana still has a lot of time for the man who walked out on WWE the night after the 2014 Royal Rumble, saying: “I like that guy. He’s a good dude.

“He wants one more. He wants to get another shot. I’m going to give it to him.”
