Paul Heyman Says Brock Lesnar Could Return To UFC, Layoffs Are Good For Him

With Lesnar's WWE contract expiring this year, the possibility of the current WWE Universal Champion leaving for the UFC looms. TMZ Sports caught up with Heyman, who discussed the star.

"Brock Lesnar does whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in UFC then Brock Lesnar will fight in UFC. If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in WWE then he will fight in WWE. Ask Braun Strowman, ask Randy Orton, ask The Undertaker. Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do," Heyman said.

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. 

"The time away actually makes him better because his body gets a chance to heal. The problem with these UFC fighters is, and they are all fantastic athletes, top of the line the world, they wear their bodies down in these training camps. All these guys that are cutting weight are destroying their bodies. Brock Lesnar is probably the healthiest fighter to enter UFC if he decides to do that. He’s always ready," said Heyman has been told that Lesnar has told WWE he's interested in a UFC return, although he does that each time his WWE deal is coming up. Lesnar still has at least six months to serve on a USADA suspension that was "frozen" when he retired from MMA a year ago and exited the USADA pool.
