Dana White Expecting To Hear From Brock Lensar After ‘Mania 35

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lensar is defending the title against Seth Rollins at WWE Wrestlemania 35.

UFC President Dana White believes that he will hear from Lesnar about a potential UFC return after ‘Mania 35 ends.

Brock Lesnar, he’s doing his thing right now with the WWE,” White said in an interview with Megan Olivi (via Dave Mandel of Sherdog). “One of the things about Brock Lesnar is when that guy’s ready to fight, he’s not shy. He’ll call me, he’ll let me know. To be honest with you, I’m hoping I’m going to hear from that guy this summer.”

Lesnar hasn’t competed in the Octagon since UFC 200, where an initial win against Mark Hunt was overturned to a no contest due to a failed drug test.

White is also confident that a potential bout between UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and Lesnar will come to fruition.

“I think both guys really want it. I know Cormier wants it bad and I know Brock wants it bad,” White said. “When two guys want to fight each other as bad as these two do, I think it’s going to happen.”

Cormier and Lesnar briefly got physical at UFC 226, but nothing has come out of that altercation since.
