UFC President Dana White says there’s a possibility Brock Lesnar will get a shot at regaining the UFC heavyweight title the next time he steps in the octagon.

White recently said Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC), who hasn’t fought for the promotion since the well documented UFC 200 debacle in July 2016, which led to a suspension for multiple failed drug tests, would “definitely” be making a return to the UFC in the future. The current WWE Universal Champion is currently an active member of the UFC roster and will reportedly be available following Sunday’s WrestleMania pay-per-view event in New Orleans.

Lesnar still has slightly more than six months to serve on his suspension, but that time will only begin to tick down once he re-enters the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency testing pool. Once his time is up, though, White said Lesnar could challenge the winner of July’s UFC 226 headliner between current heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic (18-2 MMA, 12-2 UFC) and Daniel Cormier (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC).

Coming off a drug suspension where he failed miserably and a 2 year layoff. Hell no would be an understatement for me.

Miss the days when casuals didn't dictate this sport.

I doubt they'd have done this under the Fertittas. The sale changed the game. Short term returns are constantly needed.

I'm a big Lesnar fan, but even I think this is ridiculous. I would love to see him back, but he needs at least 1 to 2 big wins before a title shot. I think a couple good options would be Francis Ngannu or a rematch with the Alistar Overeem. A win over either one of those two could justify a title shot (only because HW is thin with not a lot of new contenders).

Honestly I wouldn't mind seeing him come back and get messed up by Stipe or DC! Lol, in all honesty though, I do miss the old days when you had to win your way up the rankings and earn your title shot. Integrity of the sport is a thing of the past..
