WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman were reportedly at UFC Headquarters to meet with UFC officials during International Fight Week earlier this month, according to @TalkMMA on Twitter.

The twitter account notes that Lesnar is expected to return to The Octagon as soon as the UFC November 4th event at Madison Square Garden. It was also claimed Lesnar will drop the WWE Universal Title at WWE SummerSlam next month to Roman Reigns and that he is back in the testing pool with the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Pro Wrestling Sheet has been able to confirm the reason Lesnar is re-entering the USADA testing pool for MMA is because his WWE contract expires not long after WrestleMania 34 next year and he’s already told WWE officials he doesn’t intend to re-sign and by entering the testing pool he can keep his options open for a return to MMA.Pro Wrestling Sheet also notes that Lesnar returning to The Octagon in November for the UFC event at Madison Square Garden isn’t true.

Lesnar has to re-enter the testing pool and fulfill the rest of his suspension before he’s allowed to fight in UFC again, according to Fightful.com’s Sean Ross Sapp.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
