  • WWE Raw: Reigns calls out Lesnar, Rousey demands an apology

Although Roman Reigns was set to meet Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in the middle of the ring this past Monday night on Raw, six weeks before their WrestleMania match, The Beast Incarnate was nowhere to be seen. Or if it just meant that, ya know, Lesnar was in Las Vegas for the WWE's "Elimination Chamber" pay-per-view, and White lives in Vegas, and they just got together to say hi, simple as that?

Despite the obstacles in Lesnar's way and a mirky recent past in the UFC, White is hopeful the former heavyweight champion will return to the sport this year.

Lesnar, of course, did make a brief return to the octagon, for UFC 200 in 2016, knocking out Mark Hunt, then getting slapped with a one-year suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Officials also want the build to Reigns vs. Lesnar to come across like a shoot as much as possible, which is where Reigns' worked-shoot promo from RAW comes in.

Czech court to release Kurdosirio leader detained last Saturday
The Turkish foreign ministry charged Paris with releasing a false read-out of the conversation between the two heads of states. Turkey had officially asked the Czech Republic to extradite Muslim and take him into pre-trial detention.

Lesnar, 40, is under contract with WWE through WrestleMania 34. "When Brock Lesnar won the championship, it was fun".

While most of the MMA community is thrilled at the idea of Lesnar coming back to the UFC, at least one heavyweight contender isn't convinced The Beast will make the jump back into the Octagon. He stuck around in the WWE, which had given him permission to fight for the UFC once more at UFC 200.

Paul Heyman announced that Lesnar would be going face-to-face with the Elimination Chamber victor on the post-PPV Raw but instead we got a fantastic Roman Reigns promo saying that Lesnar wasn't there.

According to a new report , three new iPhones will launch in 2018, all derived from the design and features of the iPhone X. All three of Apple's new phones will have an updated operating system, likely called iOS 12 , according to Bloomberg .

Paul Heyman, Lesnar's on-screen manager, addressed the situation last week with TMZ.

In an appearance on "Sirius XM" Radio, White was asked how good the chances were Lesnar could return.

Would you be excited to see Brock Lesnar back in the UFC? The threat of Lesnar retaining the belt and taking it to another company could create even more buzz surrounding WWE's biggest match of the year.
