Dana White Says Brock Lesnar Title Shot is a “Possibility”
By FCF Staff
Although officially, Brock Lesnar hasn’t recorded a win in the Octagon since 2010, Dana White has said that the former heavyweight champ could receive a title shot in his UFC return.
Recently White has said that Lesnar will fight in the UFC again, but that he’s not sure when that will happen. At a press conference on Friday, White was asked if Lesnar could be booked to face the winner of the July 7th, bout between Daniel Cormier and heavyweight champ, Stipe Miocic. White said the following (quote via MMA Junkie):
“That’s a possibility,” White said. “He’s still under contract with the UFC, but we have not signed him to a fight. He’s still under contract with us, too. He still has fights left on his deal. He’s got to get back into the USADA pool.”
Lesnar returned to the UFC in 2016, and recorded a decision win over Mark Hut. But, since Lesnar tested positive for a banned substances after the bout, the fight was overturned. Lesnar still has to complete the suspension he was handed by USADA for the positive test.
