On June 4th, 2016 it was announced that current WWE wrestler and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar was returning to the UFC. "The Beast" Brock Lesnar had a decent run in his first stint in the UFC. Lesnar picked up wins over Heath Herring, Randy Couture, and Frank Mir before suffering a devastating case of diverticulitis which required him to have surgery.
After the diverticulitis illness Brock Lesnar was not the same fighter. He defended his UFC Heavyweight title against Shane Carwin but only because Carwin gassed out and Brock was able to take advantage in a fight Shane was winning. Since then he lost to Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem before he retired from the sport and headed back to the WWE.
In the WWE Brock Lesnar has again been at the top of the industry. He won the WWE World Heavyweight title from John Cena, defended it numerous times and even ended The Undertaker's undefeated streak at WrestleMania. As you can tell, Brock is one of the top guys in the WWE. So why would the WWE let one of their biggest stars risk losing his mystique by going to fight in the UFC? Dana White wouldn't let Rousey wrestle at the last WrestleMania so what gives?
Vince has to have a plan and here I speculate on 15 things that Vince could have asked for in return for letting Brock Lesnar fight at UFC 200. Of course some of these have no chance in hell of ever happening but seeing Vince's ego is even bigger than Dana White's it is plausible he could ask for the following. As always let us know what you think in the comments.

2 Ronda Rousey Wrestles At WrestleMania
This has to be one of the first things that came to WWE fans minds when they thought of what could be coming to WWE in return for Brock. Rousey is a huge WWE fan, frequently appearing in the first row at events. She called her group of fighter friends "The Four Horsewomen" in honor of the Four Horsemen. She appeared at WrestleMania before but had little physical interaction.
1 Connor McGregor Wrestles At WrestleMania
Is there anyone better in the UFC at hyping fights? I don't think so. Conor McGregor has a way of making his fans love him yet his detractors hate him even more whenever he opens his mouth. He is a natural heel that seems to love getting under the skin of his opponents. He would be the perfect guy to come in and play a prominent role in whatever show he wants to be on. Conor has hinted at having a WWE career in his future and a one-off appearance here could be a huge start.
