A couple of days ago former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar stated his MMA career was over when he signed a new deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). However, not everybody is convinced he would never return to the Octagon.

Chael Sonnen also has some combinations with WWE at the beginning of the year and he believes Lesnar could easily return if Dana White plays his cards well.

"Just because he signed with them doesn't mean he can't still go to the UFC," Sonnen said. "Dana White and Vince McMahon have worked hand-in-hand before. That's actually how Vince got Brock this most recent time, is Dana released him to him. Dana can get done about anything he wants. He's a very clever guy."

"I think what we see is what we get," Sonnen said. "I think Brock's time in the octagon is done, but Brock's a presence. He's a fun guy, and if he wants to come back, I'm sure he could."
