There was a who’s-who of the heavyweight division competing in the Octagon this evening at UFC 146, but it was one that was sitting outside of it spectating that’s really got people talking post-fight.
Prior to the main event former champion Brock Lesnar, who retired from the sport at the end of last year and has since returned to the WWE, was shown at Octagon-side.
When asked about this unexpected appearance at the post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White was somewhat coy in his reply.
He claimed not to have spoken to him yet, but at the same time said that he believed there was more to his visit than just taking in the fights and when asked if Lesnar could be set to return to the UFC he smiled and appeared to hint that it was a possibility.
Of course there’s also the possibility that this is some sort of publicity stunt arranged by the WWE (they did plant ‘The Undertaker’ in the crowd at one of Lesnar’s UFC fights after all) so we’ll just have to wait and see what comes of this, but it’s certainly an intriguing development.
