Brock Lesnar exits WWE after contract runs out sparking speculation of UFC return… or could be move to AEW?

BROCK LESNAR is a free agent after failing to agree terms on an extension to his WWE contract.

The 43-year-old superstar has not competed inside the ring since WrestleMania 36 in April when he lost the WWE Title to Drew McIntyre.

Talks have been ongoing over recent months over a new deal to continue his stay working for Vince McMahon.

However, it has been widely-reported that those discussions between the former UFC heavyweight champion and the billionaire failed to result in a conclusion.

Now Lesnar is a free agent again, and speculation is already mounting over his future as the fighter’s apparel and merchandise has been pulled off the company’s official website.

The Beast Incarnate could potentially open talks with the Tony Khan-backed wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling.

And UFC's Jon Jones stoked the flames of a future fight by tweeting: “Brock I’ll beatcho a** too.”

While no doubt rumours will continue to do the rounds of a return to UFC, he could end up competing inside the cage elsewhere.

Bellator president Scott Coker has already confirmed his interest in Lesnar.

And he would love to set-up a dream clash between him and longtime PRIDE heavyweight titleholder Fedor Emelianenko.

Coker told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani: “Yes, if he’s truly available. Fedor vs. Brock is interesting. It’s the fight that never happened!”

Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016 while still under contract with WWE.

But that win was later overturned to a no-contest after he failed a drugs test.

That was his last MMA fight after a comeback against Daniel Cormier was teased but failed to materialise.
