Source: MMAFighting.comFormer UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar could return to the Octagon - if he decided that was the career path he wanted to take again, according to his manager and friend Paul Heyman.
Lesnar retired from MMA after a loss to Alistair Overeem. He defeated the likes of Frank Mir and Shane Carwin during his run.
"I think he's very, very happy right now with what we're doing in WWE," Heyman said, during an interview on The MMA Hour which you can see in the video above (thanks to MMAFighitng.com for the quotes). "It's (returning to fight in UFC) not a subject he has to think about. If the deal ends up over in WWE, if a change of circumstances happens, and if it's a no-brainer to get him back into the cage, I'm sure it's something he'd consider. Right now, it's not a topic of conversation. Why would you mess up the WWE deal?"
Lesnar was a standout collegiate wrestler and had a successful run with the pro wrestling promotion before trying out for the NFL. After that, he embarked on a career in mixed martial arts. Overeem, the last man to face Lesnar, called him out following a recent win over Mir - something that did not sit too well with Lesnar, says Heyman.
"He was unimpressed," he said. "He thought Alistair should call out people who are in the UFC and people he could draw money with."
