WWE superstars react to Brock Lesnar’s return to UFC

Saturday night, the combat sports world was shocked with the news that former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE superstar Brock Lesnar would be making a return to the Octagon for one more fight at UFC 200.

His colleagues with his current company seemed to take the news pretty well.

Many WWE superstars and personalities took to Twitter to talk about the Beast Incarnate going back to the Ultimate Fighting Championship for one final fight. What is even more interesting is the fact that he will be back in WWE for their biggest show of the summer, Summerslam, just a month later in August.

I'll fight BROCK……. In a ring or octagon I don't care.

Let's be realistic & not overthink the Brock/@ufc biz. If Lesnar grabs a big payday, he's happy. Happy Brock is good for @WWE. Everyone wins

No reason for @BrockLesnar to leave @WWE to do a @ufc fight. None. Smart of @WWE let Brock do his thing. It's all about the money for all.

The question now is who will Brock Lesnar fight at UFC 200. One possibility is Stefan Struve and WWE Tag Team Champion and New Day member Xavier Woods seems to be siding with the current UFC fighter.

Struve. Duh. https://t.co/Me5IzBLsI1

This is going to be one interesting development over the next month.
