Brock Lesnar claimed in a video released earlier this week that he is coming back soon.
Now, UFC President Dana White can confirm just when that now may be.
“Brock’s gonna get back in the gym in September,” White said. “Start training again, cause he hasn’t done anything since his surgery, training wise. Brock will probably be back the first of the year.”
The video, a promotional feature for Fusion, was the first appearance of Lesnar since his colon surgery.
Rumors of just who the former UFC heavyweight champion may face have already started to run wild, as potential bouts with Frank Mir or Alistair Overeem have been talked about.
