Dana White says Brock Lesnar is not coming back to the UFC

Dana White announced on the Dave and Mahoney show on CBS Radio that Brock Lesnar is done with mixed martial arts and will not be coming back to the UFC.

“He called me a couple of days ago. He’s never coming back, his body can’t take it,” White said. He added that Lesnar said he could wrestle but can’t fight.

“He was contemplating coming back,” the UFC President added.

White has left the door open for Lesnar’s return after the former UFC Heavyweight champion called it quits after he was defeated by Alistair Overeem last year in December.

Following a new deal with WWE, Lesnar showed up at the UFC 146 pay-per-view in Las Vegas and was shown on camera, fueling more speculations that Lesnar was thinking of coming back. White had a meeting with Lesnar that weekend and said that the meeting couldn’t have gone any worse and it wasn’t good at all.

Despite the meeting, White was optimistic and often said in interviews that he would love to have Lesnar back for one more fight. Brock has been one of the most successful fighters in terms of pay-per-view draws and did millions and millions of money for the UFC.
