Dana White does not see a UFC return for Brock Lesnar in the cards.
At the tail-end of August 2020, Brock Lesnar's WWE contract expired and many within the Combat Sports World began to speculate about where Brock Lesnar would end up next. Naturally, due to Brock Lesnar's history in the Octagon for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Dana White would comment on the potential of Brock Lesnar fighting in the Octagon once more.
Even though White previously proclaimed he was interested in promoting a potential fight between Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar, Dana would tell TMZ Sports that he does not see Brock Lesnar returning to UFC at his age but he would be willing to touch base again with Lesnar just to see if he and his family are doing well.
“Sure, I'd love to hear how [Brock Lesnar] is doing and how his family is, things like that, but I think that's going to be the extent of a conversation with him. You know the guy has had a long, killer career. He actually came in and became a UFC Heavyweight Champion and the guy's made a lot of money. I just don't see him coming back over here again at his age.”
Dana would also say that he has not heard from Jon Jones recently.
