5 possible fights for Brock Lesnar upon UFC return
Will the WWE Universal Champion face the man who destroyed him in their last match?
Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC is an inevitable phenomenon and more so after Dana White posted a photo with the WWE Universal Champion on Instagram:
While the WWE Universe prepares to witness Roman Reigns dethrone Lesnar at WrestleMania 34, the UFC faithful are busy match-making when it comes to the potential bouts that could be booked with the return of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.
Anyone who gets to share Octagon space with Lesnar automatically gets the mainstream rub and with options galore, the comeback of one of the biggest crossover stars in combat sports history is a blessing in disguise for the UFC.
With that being said, here are the five most likely fights to book once the Beast Incarnate returns:
#1 Jon Jones
This was the plan all along before Jon Jones shot himself in the foot and failed yet another drug test after a memorable win against Daniel Cormier. According to Bones' manager Malki Kawa, the former Light Heavyweight Champion should be able to return to the Octagon this year after his USADA hearing gets sorted out by March.
However, with his most recent CSCA hearing that led to his license being revoked, it may be a while before we see the disgraced pound-for-pound great make his return. He will eventually be back though.
With Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier set to battle it out in a Heavyweight money fight at UFC 226, a warm-up bout for Jones in the form of Lesnar seems like a great idea on paper before he eventually faces his arch-nemesis in a third showdown.
The super fight between the two tainted freaks of nature with a title shot on the line is a record-breaking PPV headliner waiting to happen.
