Brock Lesnar reportedly wants to return to the octagon. The UFC wants him back and the current heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier, wants to fight him.
Seems like all the ingredients for a heavyweight title fight. According to MMA insider Ariel Helwani the UFC is putting a title fight between Lesnar and Cormier together for August.

Scheduling the fight in August should give Lesnar plenty of time to get off of the PEDs before he steps into the octagon. The UFC is reaching here with Lesnar.
They’re clearly hoping Lesnar can bring enough star power to fill the void left by Conor McGregor. It’s not enough to bring him back to fight, he has to perform.
