Could the months of speculation about the return of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar finally be coming to an end?
That's the question that could be answered tomorrow as the former NCAA wrestling champion makes his first public appearance in several months when he appears on ESPN's SportsCenter on Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. ET.
A UFC representative confirmed Lesnar's appearance on the program to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.
The champion has had a lengthy layoff since his last fight, a title win over Frank Mir, back in July 2009. Lesnar was scheduled to face top contender Shane Carwin on two different occasions – at UFC 106 and UFC 108 – but both bouts were scrapped due to Lesnar's unforeseen illness.
UFC president Dana White said in early January following UFC 108 that he hoped to know the final diagnosis for Lesnar's condition this month and it would determine if the champion would return or if his career could potentially be over.
Everyone from Lesnar's friends to trainers have come out and made statements about his potential return to the sport, but this will be the first time he has made a public appearance and interview since midway through 2009.
It's uncertain at this time if Lesnar will make an announcement about his medical condition or return to fighting, but some questions are sure to be answered when he appears on the popular sports network.
