Brock Lesnar is the current reigning, defending, WWE Universal Champion, and he recently picked up a big win over Braun Strowman at No Mercy. It’s expected that Brock will end up holding the title through WrestleMania 34, and it’s rumored that he’ll be facing off against Roman Reigns in the main event of Mania next year. It’s also been rumored that Brock’s contract with WWE is set to expire after WrestleMania 34, and fans are wondering what the future holds for The Beast Incarnate.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the last dates on Brock Lesnar’s current deal would be WrestleMania 34, or possibly the Raw after WrestleMania. There is an option for Lesnar’s contract to be renewed, and most expect that it will be renewed due to the fact that Lesnar will be 41 next summer.
WWE also reportedly has certain rights with Lesnar that will go through the first week of August if a new deal is not signed.
It was rumored that Brock Lesnar was considering pursuing MMA once again and returning to UFC for a fight with Jon Jones, but the belief now is that the fight with Jones is never going to happen.
Dana White said in a recent interview that it’s unlikely that WWE will let Brock fight in the UFC again while he’s under contract.
“Well Lesnar was still under contract to the WWE until next August. Who knows what would have happened. I don’t count my chickens any more, I’ll tell you that. They didn’t want to do that again. You saw what happened the last time he was under contract (and fought),” said White.
If Lesnar does want to fight in UFC again he will have to wait until August because WWE will have no rights to him.
