Brock Lesnar is very much involved with WWE, but he’s also been the subject of many MMA rumors in the past few weeks. It sounds like those rumors might be for good reason.
Though Lesnar did not show up to UFC 168 as was rumored, UFC boss Dana White reportedly told LA Times reporter Lance Pugmire that he’s been in talks with Brock.

Many believe all the talk about Brock’s involvement with the UFC was just a publicity stunt. Brock has an exclusive contract with WWE for big money and low appearances. He’s expected to wrestle at WrestleMania in April. He hasn’t fought in the UFC since losing to Alistair Overeem a little over two years ago. Why would he want back in when the WWE is giving him a great deal? It doesn’t make much sense, regardless of the rumors.
The UFC, though, could really use Brock. He was their biggest pay-per-view draw and, with Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva out for the time being, they need more stars.
