"Anything is possible", White told Michael Bisping and Kenny Florian when asked about the possibility of Lesnar returning to the UFC.

While Lesnar is still under contract to WWE now, UFC president Dana White admitted that he could still see a scenario where the hulking heavyweight makes his return to action during 2018.

Watch Hunt's full interview, where he talks fighting Francis Ngannou, helping young Aussies Tai Tuivasa and Tyson Pedro, plus the "Mark Hunt Clause" for drug cheats in the UFC. It just goes to show [the UFC's] credibility when they say a guy like Brock Lesnar is coming back.

As seen in the fight, Lesnar won a unanimous decision that night which was subsequently overturned when it was revealed he failed two USADA issued drug tests before the bout.

The 40-year-old's current contract with the WWE expires after Wrestlemania in April and many have predicted that the UFC will try to convince him to have one last fight in the Octagon. "I wouldn't be shocked if he gave it one more shot".

During his UFC career, Lesnar headlined three pay-per-view cards that surpassed one million buys and was the co-main event in another.

Hunt did touch on his upcoming fight with Curtis Blaydes at UFC 221, but was not shy to share his thoughts on the relationship between Brock Lesnar and Dana White.

"He shouldn't be fighting, he's just a cheater", he told Submission Radio. Some of you said to me, "Oh Mark, you gotta go and do your tests because we're anxious about you.' You're lying?"

"At the end of the day, we are setting a bad example and the wrong example, for not only the kids coming through who want to be pro fighters but also martial artists". This is a sport of respect and honor and doing the right thing, not taking short cuts to get to the top and making money.
