Brock Lesnar…UFC Bound? Or Still a Mattel WWE Staple?

Rumors have been running rampant that the beastly Brock Lesnar has been secretly planning a return to the octagon with UFC. He has openly and publicly claimed he is retired from his MMA career and vowed never to return, but rumors of some sort of superfight including BrockĀ are the talk of the mixed martial arts town. This may seem difficult when considering his WWE career, but fans continue to speculate. Since debuting in the WWE, Brock Lesnar has been consideredĀ one of the most feared men on the planet, and his sheer wrestling ability is a major part of that. With WWE Undisputed Championship included, The Ringside Collectibles Exclusive ‘Here Comes The Pain’ Mattel WWE Brock Lesnar action figure embodies Brock’s first and most impactful WWE run:

Since returning to the WWE, Brock Lesnar has sported an MMA-style attire, including his sponsors and logos on his shorts. Although these cannot be captured in a Mattel WWE figure due to cross-licensing issues, the shorts and the fighting spirit remain, like in Brock’s Mattel WWE Elite 19 figure. This is the current, modern day version of The Next Big Thing:

Since Brock Lesnar enjoys time away from the ring and can’t always be present after leaving UFC for a WWE return, he has pulled no punches in maintaining a representative. That representative is none other than Paul Heyman, ECW founder and best friend of the big, bad brawler. Mattel captured the likeness of their business arrangement in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25. The first ever Mattel WWE Paul Heyman figure is included:

Only time will tell if the very private Brock Lesnar is planning a return to the UFC. Will he balance his time between both companies? Is the idea that he could return to professional fighting just hot air? One thing is certain, Mattel has given fans excellent versions of this very big, very intimidating man.
