Brock Lesnar, despite being a free agent, is currently not negotiating with UFC -- yet.
In the past, Lesnar would let his deal with WWE expire and then start discussions with UFC as a way to gain leverage and secure the best contract possible.
It is also believed that if WWE was moving ahead with another Saudi Arabia show this year, they would likely look to bring Lesnar in for that but Vince McMahon has already conceded that that show won't be happening.
Lesnar was actually a free agent since April but nobody knew until WWE quietly pulled his merchandise from their online store as that part of his contract expired a few months after his wrestling deal.
In terms of the MMA coverage, the ESPN MMA YouTube channel released a video on Tuesday that featured ESPN MMA reporters Ariel Helwani and Brett Okomoto looking at the possibility of Brock Lesnar signing with the UFC for a potential fight against Jon Jones.
Check out the video below.
