Report: Lesnar’s New WWE Deal Very Short, Targets Miocic vs. D.C. Winner In December

It was recently reported that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has signed a new contract with professional wrestling titan WWE. With that in mind, it would appear that the WWE star may still make his way back to the octagon sometime soon.

After being suspended for a failed drug test from UFC 200, Lesnar decided to return to the WWE. With his suspension having now been completed and his contract with the WWE having recently come to an end, many fight fans believed Lesnar would once again return to the UFC.

However, it was recently reported that Lesnar renewed a contract with the WWE. Journalist Jeremy Botter has since taken to social media to report that Lesnar’s recent championship victory over Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 may soon lead to a title loss for the former UFC title holder.

“My understanding is Lesnar signed for one more match. Audible called by Vince during the match last night when Roman wasn’t getting over at all. Now Lesnar will lose the belt in front of a more conducive audience.”

The reporter then explained that Lesnar will likely make a few WWE appearances in the future.

“Now, it’s likely we’ll see Lesnar in WWE beyond these two appearances. But not for awhile and likely less than we are used to seeing him. He’s committed to putting everything he has into UFC.”

However, Botter then revealed that a massive super fight against the winner of reigning UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s upcoming throw down may be Lesnar’s next octagon appearance.

“As far as Lesnar and UFC goes: he’s currently targeted to face to DC/Stipe winner at the year-end show in December. I suspect he would be back in WWE for a Mania appearance after that, especially if he wins the heavyweight title. (He won’t win it)”

Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic will fight at UFC 226. The live pay-per-view event will take place July 7 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
