Early Betting Odds Released For Brock Lesnar's Opponent In UFC

Paul Heyman on Whether or Not CM Punk Could Return to WWE

Paul Heyman Talks CM Punk Return To WWE

Lesnar was expected to walk away from WWE after WrestleMania 34, but he instead re-signed with the professional wrestling promotion, and has been booked to defend his title April 27 in Saudi Arabia versus Roman Reigns inside a steel cage.

It's been reported that Lesnar's WWE contract expired after the match and it's been widely talked about Lesnar's interest in returning to the UFC.

On Sunday night, Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns in the main event in New Orleans.

A day later, WWE announced that they had signed Lesnar to a new contract.

Lesnar has made it no secret that he'd like to fight once again as he reaches the twilight stages of his career. The result was subsequently changed to a no contest after Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene.

It is not a multi-fight deal though, which means if Lesnar gets a shot at the UFC heavyweight title against the victor of Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier, like White said was a possibility, it would represent a huge risk to the Las Vegas promotion which will then have to negotiate with McMahon to allow him to compete again or force him to vacate the belt if he becomes a two-time champion.

However, with little contract details revealed by the WWE, it is unknown whether there is a clause in Lesnar's contract that he will be let fight.

In recent interviews, UFC president Dana White - who was in attendance for the event to support Ronda Rousey - stated that Lesnar was returning to the Octagon to compete once more very soon.
