There are only a couple of names to mention when we speak of fighters who can step out of the game but remain a star in the eyes of the media. Despite any mention of leaving or returning, they instantly become the hottest topic - Brock Lesnar is one of them.

Apart from Brock Lesnar, to name a few, there's the great Russian heavyweight, Fedor Emelianenko, the first female mixed martial art star, Gina Carano, Scott Coker who made the publishers happy when he declared on Sherdog Radio Network's Beatdown his plans of going to Japan to meet Emelianenko, and the appearance of Carano who was rumoured to fight against Ronda Rousey.

All these names have been out of action for how many years but people still love to talk about them. Hence, publication still sells when they're on it. The trick is to always feed people what they want to hear and read. Now, Brock Lesnar appears in the picture, the pro wrestler who got hardcore MMA fans into a riot when he jumped into mixed martial arts knowing his little experience. He pushed the MMA fans to their edge when he brought home the UFC heavyweight championship title.

Just as when he was enjoying the title, Cain Velasquez stole his soul, followed by Alistair Overeem who also made him eat a little dust. Both sent Lesnar back to Vince McMahon. The latter was just too willing to pay him for 20 years or more worth of work.Three years later, the trained Lesnar appears ready to roll once more. There have been speculations that even the officials at World Wrestling Entertainment are assuming that Lesnar, after his contract expires in April, will leave WWE and return to UFC.

According to Dave Meltzer, people working for and in behalf of Lesnar always like to keep things quiet, but within the company, there's always that faith that Lesnar will eventually make his return to UFC. His appearance on TV last week impliedly confirmed Lesnar's return. Even when Lesnar is not yet a free agent, promoters are all ready to have a grab of him once he becomes one. To top, there's Bellator who is sure to make a run at Lesnar. According to him, there is no fighter in the world they cannot afford and have access to.
