Dana White Doubts Brock Lesnar Will Ever Return To UFC

We may never see Brock Lesnar in the UFC again, according to Dana White.

According to a report by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, UFC president Dana White doesn't believe WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar will ever return to the MMA organisation. 

White commented on Lesnar's physique, stating "Brock looks good, doesn’t he? He always does" before playing down the likelihood of his return, explaining "I think Brock’s done, I don’t think he ever comes back." The fact that Brock is 46 years old at the time of writing seems to support White's claim - a rare age for fighters to compete at such a high level. 

Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, competing in the promotion between 2008 and 2011, before returning to pro wrestling. He had one further UFC fight in 2016, an initial victory over Mark Hunt which was later ruled a no contest after Brock tested positive for a banned substance. This left him with an overall MMA record of 5-3-1, with all but his first professional bout coming in the UFC. 

Lesnar became UFC Heavyweight Champion in November 2008, defeating Randy Couture by TKO. He successfully defended the title against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin, before losing to Cain Velasquez in October 2010. 

Brock currently finds himself back in WWE, albeit on a part-time basis. He recently completed a feud with Cody Rhodes, losing the blow-off match to the American Nightmare at this year's SummerSlam, before appearing to turn face with a handshake after the bout.
