Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC’s Middleweight and Light Heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen was one of the many who wanted to see Brock Lesnar make his return to the promotion. And while the former UFC Heavyweight champion renewed his contract with the World Wrestling Entertainment or WWE, the American Gangster is not closing the door on his return to the cage just now.
However, he said he understands what Lesnar meant when he said that his legacy inside the Octagon was over.
Sonnen, who now works as an analyst for the UFC said that he thought that it was pretty obvious, adding that he felt that Lesnar played it the best way he could have done to make it believe that he was indeed returning to fight.
Lesnar, who had a 5-3 Mixed Martial Arts and 4-2 UFC record, was on the verge of becoming a free agent with his contract nearing its end. However, just before WWE’s flagship event Wrestle Mania kicked off, Lesnar announced that he had signed a new deal, effectively ending all speculation linking him with a return to the UFC.
And despite the new contract, Chael Sonnen doesn’t think that there is no possibility of Lesnar ever making a comeback in the future. According to the American, UFC president Dana White enjoys a strong relationship with WWE boss Vince McMahon and just because he signed the contract, doesn’t mean he will never come to the UFC.
According to Chael Sonnen, the strong relationship between them has seen them working together plenty of times and that is how McMahon got Lesnar this time – it was White releasing him to him. He added that Dana White is a wise guy and can get anything done and might one day bring back Brock Lesnar to the UFC, too.
