Brock Lesnar attends UFC 184, is he meeting Dana White about MMA return?

UFC PR boss Dave Sholler just tweeted out a picture of the former UFC HW champ talking to Zuffa president Dana White during UFC 184. Lesnar's current deal with the WWE expires in a few weeks could a return to the Octagon be in Brock's future?

Only days after skipping out on a scheduled appearance on WWE's Monday Night Raw, former UFC Heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar flew out to California to catch UFC 184 and speak with Dana White. The UFC president has made no secret of his desire to get Lesnar back in the Octagon.

Lesnar was the UFC's biggest star during its most successful period. In July of 2009 then champ Lesnar headlined UFC 100, their biggest show ever. In 2010 he lost his title to Cain Velasquez following a debilitating battle with diverticulitis. He went out with a whimper after a December 2011 loss to Alistair Overeem and returned to professional wrestling.

Since then Lesnar has been a big draw in the WWE but that organization's move toward an online subscription model has seemingly made it harder for Lesnar to collect the kind of massive money he's used to. He's only got a few more weeks on his WWE contract and the savvy Lesnar would love to trigger an MMA bidding war between the UFC and Bellator while weighing the WWE's best offers as well.

UFC PR head Dave Sholler just tweeted the following pic of Brock and Dana renewing acquaintance tonight at the Staples Center during UFC 184.
