The glitzy announcement was made during the UFC 199 pay-per-view event, where Michael Bisping shocked Luke Rockhold in their middleweight match-up. But as of yet, we don’t know who Brock will squaring up against. Whoever it is, this should shake up the heavyweight division splendidly.
Brock’s career record in MMA is 5-3 and UFC is 4-3, but when you think back to when he retired in 2011 from MMA after is difficulties with diverticulitis, he could be taking a little bit of a risk stepping back into the octagon. Or maybe he’ll just finish him off fast, who knows!
Despite returning back to the UFC for one more fight, rest-assured wrestling fans Brock has no intentions of quitting the WWE just yet. Phew!
In fact, the WWE issued their own statement. “Brock Lesnar remains under contract to WWE, however, he has been granted a one-off opportunity to compete at UFC 200,” it said. “Following this milestone event on July 9, Brock will return to WWE for SummerSlam on Sunday, August 21, live on WWE Network.”
It’s going to be exciting to see who Brock faces off against, and if it just a one-off, will he be convinced to maybe return again? So many questions!
