Well, that was quick...
At tonight's UFC 199 event, a promo ran for their big show next month, UFC 200. And guess who was shows up at the very end?

Lesnar official at UFC 200. WWE approved it.— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) June 5, 2016
Opponent is truly TBD. Not finalized yet, as I reported earlier. Expect an announcement in the coming days, though. Won't be a long wait.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 5, 2016
Still more questions than answers, but it appears that the details in our last post (minus Dana White's obvious tap dance) were correct: this has been in the works since immediately following WrestleMania, and WWE approved.
With Vince McMahon's blessing, we have to assume Lesnar will finish out his WWE contract (signed before WrestleMania 31 and reportedly for two years) after helping to make UFC 200 as big as possible.
We'll undoubtedly have more details on both who Brock's fighting and how WWE will be involved in the coming days.
