Though he’s currently embroiled in trouble resulting from a positive drug test related to his MMA career, WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar hasn’t completely written off a possible return to the Octagon.
Lesnar returned to MMA following a near-five-year absence, when he defeated Mark Hunt at UFC 200 on July 9. The excitement about his return quickly fizzled, however, when the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which administers the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, announced that Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance in two drug tests.

The first was in a June 28 out-of-competition test, while the second was his fight-night drug test. Both tests returned positive results for the same banned substance, although USADA did not reveal the identity of the substance.
Lesnar’s case is still pending with both USADA and the Nevada Athletic Commission, which has jurisdiction over his fight with Hunt.
Despite being mired in the drug testing case at 39 years of age, Lesnar told TMZ Sports ahead of his participation in Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam, he hasn’t fully ruled out another return to the UFC.
“I got a few challenges to overcome before I can get there. For right now, I’m gonna focus on my WWE career,” said Lesnar, before leaving the door open a crack.
“This has been a bumpy road. I’m gonna get through this all right. There will be a day, maybe, (my fans) might see me back in the Octagon.”
