Brock Lesnar Will Participate In 'UFC 200'

There had been rumours that Brock Lesnar was close to returning to the UFC for a second time after leaving to join the WWE again in 2012.

However, back in March 2015, Lesnar signed a contract which officially ended his relationship with UFC, so it looked unlikely.

But now, according to MMA Junkie, he will be returning to The Octagon, but the WWE have claimed his re-entrance to the UFC is a "one-off opportunity."

UFC 200 takes place on July 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas but WWE have stated that Lesnar will be back in the WWE to participate in SummerSlam on August 21.

As of yet, Lesnar's opponent remains un-named and this fight will be added to an already packed card for the event.

"Brock Lesnar remains under contract to WWE, however, he has been granted a one-off opportunity to compete at UFC 200. Following this milestone event on July 9, Brock will return to WWE for SummerSlam on Sunday, August 21, live on WWE Network," the statement reads on WWE.com.
