Brock Lesnar ringside at UFC 146, hinting at possible returnPosted on May 27, 2012, 12:17 PM by Mike Drahota
In what was something of a surprise last night, former UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was on hand at UFC 146, sitting ringside This may have hinted at a possible return for the well-known former titleholder who recently returned to the WWE. Seen most recently being knocked out in the first round by Alistair Overeem last December, he retired after and was seemingly finished with his short, mercurial MMA career. However, this may not be the case, as Dana White hinted at courtesy of a report via MMAJunkie.com:
"He was here. I think that says it all. He texted me and said, 'I want to come to the fight, but keep it quiet because I don't want to tell anybody. I want to talk face to face. You never know with him. He might want to come back. He might just want to hang out."
While this is hardly a confirmation of Lesnar's return, it does definitely leave the door much more open than it was before UFC 146. With the amount of skill displayed by the many Heavyweights on last night's historic card, Lesnar would have to show up in excellent condition to compete at the highest level. Overeem handily defeated Lesnar at UFC 141, leaving many questions about Lesnar's ability to withstand the brutal strikes dealt out by UFC Heavyweights.
Will Brock Lesnar make his way back to the UFC Octagon? If he does, will he find that the Heavyweights currently on the roster have surpassed him? In any case, Lesnar will always be a huge draw for the UFC with his outspoken personality. Stay tuned to Lowkick.com for an further developments on Lesnar's possible return.
