While Brock Lesnar‘s current WWE deal is believed to run until after WrestleMania 34 in April, talks are underway to extend their arrangement by several months. While WWE would surely love to lock down Lesnar for another multi-year deal, the company is hoping to at least get him signed on through SummerSlam in August.
Brock Lesnar Contract Update
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lesnar’s current deal contains clauses which allow for it to be extended until August. Should Lesnar decide to leave WWE for a UFC return after, he would have to un-retire from MMA and re-enter the USADA testing pool beforehand.
Lesnar would also have to sit out the remainder of his USADA suspension stemming from his 1-year suspension from his failed drug test at UFC 200.
It’s worth mentioning that the chances of Lesnar fighting again for UFC drastically decreased as a result of former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones’ latest suspension. Jones and Lesnar had been rumored for a blockbuster ‘dream fight’ before Jones tested positive for banned substances once again.
