WWE’s Jim Ross Believes Brock Lesnar Will Return to UFC
By FCF Staff
Following recent, heightened speculation as to whether Brock Lesnar will return to the UFC, veteran, pro-wrestling commentator Jim Ross has weighed in on the situation.
Lesnar has been in the MMA news again, following reports he’s considering re-entering the USADA testing pool, and the former heavyweight champ stating he’d be willing to fight Jon Jones. In a recent blog post from Ross, at his official site, the WWE Hall of Famer stated this:
Yes, I do think that Brock Lesnar will again fight in the UFC because he can generate a giant, payday(s) for his family and, I assume, would still maintain a positive relationship with @WWE. Seems like this matter of Lesnar return to UFC is inevitable and should be a win/win for all involved as it relates to the cash (and it’s all about the cash).
Winning or losing a UFC fight won’t hamper Lesnar’s value to WWE in the least to my way of thinking. Based on what I know, I see no reason that a Lesnar return to UFC would cease Brock’s WWE paydays over the long haul.
The decorated wrestler returned to the Octagon last July, and Lesnar earned a decision win over Mark Hunt. Following the bout, however, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended for a year.
