GETTYBrock Lesnar warms up for his UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt

But in spite of his age and given the ease with which he returned against Hunt, one of the hardest hitters in the heavyweight division, Lesnar may be persuaded to take to the Octagon one last time.

It should be noted that the company recently sent out SummerSlam travel package promotional artwork that did not include Lesnar.

White said on UFC Tonight, via MMA Weekly: "Anything is possible". Brock has always shown interest in coming over and fighting here in the UFC.

Being the draw that he is, Lesnar could headline any UFC event if he wanted to.

Lesnar went on to achieve considerable success in the Mixed Martial Arts world; winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship and besting the likes of Frank Mir, Heath Herring, Randy Couture and Shane Carwin.

While Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE in 2012, competing on a part-time schedule, he returned to the sport of MMA for a fight against legendary knockout artist Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016-a fight that he won by way of decision, but the result of which was overturned to a No-Contest as Lesnar tested positive for steroids. Jones is awaiting a final hearing in regards to his own failed drug test previous year that saw him be stripped of the title once more.

"We've offered Nate Diaz five or six fights over the last several months and he's turned them all down", White said. It's just a case of finding an opponent for him, and convincing Lesnar once more to make a return to the Octagon.

Jones could face a lengthy suspension after testing positive for a banned substance.

On rumors of CM Punk fighting at UFC 225: "I don't know if that's where he'll fight, but he's healthy and interested". Punk made his Octagon - and MMA - debut previous year, falling to Mickey Gall via submission.

Lesnar was called out by Jon Jones for a potential super fight not too long ago, so this could be one fight which happens.

Jackson, like Punk, made his pro MMA debut in the UFC, dropping a submission to Gall as well.
