There are rumors within the mixed martial arts world that WWE star Brock Lesnar has interest in returning to UFC. The MMA Fighting website has a story that notes there are rumors that Lesnar will be in attendance at UFC 168 and meet with UFC President Dana White in Las Vegas on Saturday.

White was asked about the rumors at the UFC 168 press conference. "Really?" White responded. "I don't know. I honestly don't know." When asked if he was being honest, White replied, "Honestly." Read more on the story at [Thanks to Dot Net reader Steve]

Powell's POV: White has previously stated that Lesnar desperately wanted to fight Fedor Emelianenko even after he had returned to WWE. UFC attempted to make that fight happen, but Fedor backed out. Nevertheless, that would seem to indicate that Lesnar's WWE deal does not prohibit him him from fighting in UFC. It's worth nothing that the MMA Fighting story cites sources close to Lesnar as telling reporter Ariel Helwani that they do not believe Brock is serious about returning to UFC. Of course, this is Brock Lesnar, so never say never.
