BREAKING NEWS: Brock Lesnar Confirmed for UFC 200

Brock Lesnar is headed back to the Octagon.

After rumors swirled this past weekend over the former UFC and WWE World Heavyweight Champion returning to the UFC, it has been confirmed that Lesnar will be coming out of retirement to fight at UFC 200. His opponent has yet to be determined as of press time.

The event is set to take place on July 9, 2016 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the card will be headlined by Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones in a Champion vs. Champion Fight.

Below are tweets confirming Lesnar's return to the UFC:

The biggest question is how Lesnar, UFC President Dana White, and Vince McMahon all worked this out. Lesnar renewed his WWE contract for three years, which he announced on ESPN's SportsCenter last year.

Things just got way more interesting for both pro wrestling and MMA fans now that the Conqueror has set his sights to returning to the Octagon.
