Brock Lesnar’s WWE Contract Reportedly Will Allow Him To Fight In UFC

It appears Brock Lesnar will be sticking around in pro wrestling, but that doesn’t mean his UFC days are over.

Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 and then reportedly signed a contract extension with WWE.  According to MMAFighting.com, however, the contract allows him to fight in the UFC.

Prior to UFC 223, UFC president Dana White revealed Lesnar could fight at UFC 226, taking on the winner of the heavyweight title fight between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.

However, there are still a few hurdles to clear if the former heavyweight champion wants to fight in the octagon again. Lesnar last fought at UFC 200, when he defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. He later tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and was suspended. He must first reenter the United States Anti-Doping Agency pool and complete six months of clean testing.

It’s also unclear how many UFC fight the contract would allow him to take. That could make things complicated with the WWE if he was to win a UFC title and potentially defend the belt.
