Brock Lesnar is nearing the end of his WWE contract, which rumors indicate will end after "Wrestlemania 30." According to PWInsider.com on Dec. 27, Lesnar is considering making his UFC return once his WWE contract ends.

The rumors indicate that Lesnar will attend UFC 168 this weekend and wants to meet up with UFC head honcho Dana White while he is there to discuss a return to fight in the UFC.

Lesnar was an All-American wrestler from the University of Minnesota when he signed with the WWE to join their developmental territory. Starting out in developmental around the same time as other young stars like Batista, John Cena and Shelton Benjamin, Lesnar quickly made a name for himself and broke into the WWE with Paul Heyman as his manager.

He skyrocketed to the top of the lineup and quickly started feuds with names like Undertaker and The Rock before winning his first world title. He left after only four years, following an infamous Wrestlemania match where he and his opponent Bill Goldberg were both heckled by the fans since they were both leaving the WWE following their match.

Lesnar left the WWE to try out for the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL, and when he failed at that dream, he set out for another one in the UFC in 2008. It didn't take Lesnar long ton convince Dana White to take a chance on him and won the UFC Heavyweight Championship from Randy Couture in his third fight.

Brock Lesnar had to retire from the UFC in 2011 thanks to internal injuries suffered following mononucleeosis. He re-signed with the WWE in 2012 and has been wrestling there part time ever since. When asked about his return to the UFC, Dana White said he honestly didn't know if Lesnar was coming back or not.
