Dana White Puts An End To Brock Lesnar Returning Talks

UFC president Dana White silenced any talks of a potential Brock Lesnar return to the Octagon.

White, talking with Dave Farra recently, was asked if the former UFC heavyweight champion would be returning to MMA in the future.

“Brock Lesnar is never coming back, he called me a few days ago,” White said.

Rumors of White trying to put Lesnar and Fedor Emelianenko together were sparked by White himself earlier this year. The boss asked MMA fans if they would be interested in such a match, and the fire was ignited.

White said that “Fedor isn’t coming out of retirement either, he’s done, too,” when asked about the heavyweight showdown.

Lesnar announced his retirement from the sport following a loss to Alistair Overeem last year. He returned to the WWE, a professional wrestling organization, and has appeared countless times.
