Bellator Reportedly Asked Brock Lesnar to Fight

Brock Lesnar was reportedly asked to fight for Bellator and was offered a very large amount for it. Brock Lesnar appeared at WrestleMania 36. We did not see him after that event. He is currently a free agent. Many people believe that Lesnar will return to WWE and WWE is already creating a story for him for WrestleMania next year.

Some people also believe that Lesnar will return to mixed martial arts. Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion. He fought for the UFC in 2016 at UFC 200. He never appeared after that. At UFC 200, he fought Mark Hunt. He won the fight, but the fight was later ruled a No Contest as Lesnar failed two drug tests.

He announced his retirement shortly after the event.

Bellator Reportedly Asked Brock Lesnar to Fight

Bellator President Scott Coker actually stated that he reached out to Lesnar. Bellator has Fedor Emelianenko who is one of the top fighters in the world.

"The situation with Brock Lesnar is I don't even know if he's a free agent," Coker explained. "I don't even know if he wants to fight. I don't know what his situation is. I reached out and talked to them and said, 'Hey, if Brock wants to fight Fedor, we have the guy who could be the fight that never happened.'

"We'll see if that happens. We'll see if that's something he's serious about. Only Brock knows." Coker then stated he can offer a very good deal to Lesnar. However, Coker does not know whether or not Lesnar is actually interested in fighting inside an Octagon again.

"If he was available, I'm sure we could make a deal," Coker said of Lesnar possibly competing for Bellator. "I'd go right to our CEO, Bob Bakish, and talk to him about it. I'd say, 'This is a great opportunity.'

I would bring Stephen Espinoza (and) David Nevins in the mix because it'd probably be a big commitment, but that's a big piece of business, as well." There are a few MMA superstars that have shown interest in fighting Lesnar.

The legendary Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic are two of them. Lesnar has not re-entered the USADA drug testing pool. In order to fight, Lesnar will need to enter the USADA drug testing pool and stay clean for a period of six-months. Brock Lesnar is one of the only WWE superstars that found huge success in WWE.
