Former World Wrestling Entertainment Champion Brock Lesnar will make his return to the UFC in August. Lesnar, who dominated all but the final seconds of his much-hyped debut fight against Frank Mir in early February, is expected to face Justin McCulley in the fight. While Lesnar lost the fight, he also proved to be an incredible draw, as his fight against Mir drew 650,000 buys on PPV.
Lesnar had been expected to headline June’s PPV in London’s O2 Arena, but that show will now be headlined by a dream fight between Chuck Liddell and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
