Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is set to return to the pro-wrestling organization WWE, but only as a character in their new video game ‘WWE 12’ which comes out in November.

Lesnar signed a deal with THQ to appear in the game after being given UFC president Dana White’s blessing to do so.

“I love WWE and I have nothing but love for Vince McMahon — I’m totally okay with Brock being in the game,” White tells TMZ.

The superstar fighter will remain in the UFC however, and after recovering from another battle with Diverticulitis he is currently preparing for yet another blockbuster pay-per-view fight with Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on December 30th in Las Vegas.
