There's been a lot of speculation on which UFC fighter we might see possibly appear on WWE TV now that WWE has granted Brock Lesnar a "one off" return to the Octagon at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt on July 9th.
It's still very possible that Lesnar's UFC 200 fight will open the door for UFC talents to appear on WWE TV but in a way, WWE owed UFC a favor after Ronda Rousey did the WrestleMania 31 angle with The Rock, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H last year.
There's been recent talks within WWE about possibly having some of the female UFC fighters appear in some sort of segment with the WWE women at SummerSlam this August. One name specifically discussed was Paige VanZant, who recently placed second in the finals of Dancing With The Stars. WWE reached out to VanZant's manager and there was at least some communication but we don't know how far things got.
