Currently serving as Brock Lesnar’s manager in World Wrestling Entertainment, Paul Heyman recently guested on The MMA Hour and discussed the chances of his client making a return to MMA.
He said that Lesnar finally has a clean bill of health and that this was the main point to consider before discussing any chances of seeing Lesnar in the Octagon again.
“He had a clean bill of health, finally. Brock was not ready for the Overeem fight, and I think that’s fairly obvious. A liver kick, well placed, will drop any human being on the face of this planet. A liver kick from Alistair Overeem, at that size and weight — no matter how he achieved it — is going to drop any human being. Brock was unhealthy walking into that fight with Alistair Overeem. I don’t think that Brock has ever truly understood nor accepted until he got past it, the severity of the illness that took him down. Brock, once he got past the Overeem fight, had all these treatments, switched treatments and doctors and finally got a clean bill of health.”
Heyman also said that he didn’t see Lesnar returning anytime soon only because things with Vince McMahon and WWE are going so well.
“If a change of circumstance happens, and it’s a no-brainer to get Brock back into the cage, I’m sure it’s something he would consider. At this moment, it’s not a topic of conversation because things are going so well in WWE.”
