Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has signed a new deal with the WWE.
Lesnar’s contract expired Sunday night after his win over Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 in the main event. It was rumored he would be returning to the UFC, but that appears to be up in the air at the moment.

Lesnar will defend his Universal title in a steel cage vs. Reigns at The Greatest Royal Rumble.
UFC president Dana White said last week that Lesnar was still under contract to the UFC despite competing for the WWE, so it is possible that remains the case through this new deal.
White had said he feels Lesnar will fight again inside the Octagon. His last UFC appearance came in 2016, as he failed multiple drug tests after his bout with Mark Hunt.
