All but two of his fights have been contested in a UFC octagon, with major victories over "Big Nog" Antonio Nogueira, Antonio Silva and of course Brock Lesnar.

What are your thoughts on Velasquez teasing a possible wrestling match with Brock Lesnar in the WWE?

Just when Brock Lesnar's Wrestlemania 34 opponent was announced (Roman Reigns), UFC President Dana White caused a stir by posting a picture of himself and the "Beast Incarnate" standing next to each other in Las Vegas with a simple smiley emoji.

Paul Heyman isn't pretending that he has any control over Brock Lesnar's career decision making. Heyman says Brock Lesnar does whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do.

The possibility of Lesnar returning to the UFC was put to White last weekend, and he was very receptive to the idea.

"Brock Lesnar does whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do".

I'd love to see him.

Maybe it's just Paul Heyman being Paul Heyman, but the WWE manager for Brock Lesnar recently told TMZ Sports that he believes Lesnar is "primed" for a return to the Octagon.

Lesnar won the UFC heavyweight title in a second-round TKO win over Randy Couture in November 2008.

While it's always fun to imagine the 40-year-old behemoth Brock Lesnar returning to the Octagon for one last battle, it's impossible to ignore the significant roadblocks that are now preventing such a thing.

Lesnar was in Vegas to confront Reigns on Monday Night RAW, after the latter earned his title shot at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

'The time away actually makes him better because his body gets a chance to heal, ' he said.

Lesnar still has six months left on the suspension he copped after his failed UFC 200 drug test.

Is Lesnar returning to the UFC full-time?

"Brock has always shown interest in coming over and fighting in the UFC".

When asked if taking years between fights hinders Brock Lesnar in the MMA world, Heyman thinks the opposite, and would advise some fighters to do the same.
