A return to the Octagon doesn't seem to be on the horizon for former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, according to UFC President Dana White.

It was recently announced that Lesnar is now officially a free agent after failing to agree on a new deal with Vince McMahon's company. So, rumours quickly began to spread of a potential move over to All Elite Wrestling or perhaps even a return to the legitimate arena of the UFC.

However, Dana White has now shed some more light on the situation in a recent interview with TMZ Sports:

'The guy has had a long killer career. He actually came in and became a UFC heavyweight champ and the guy’s made a lot of money. I just don’t see him coming back over here again at his age.'

With Lesnar still not re-entering the USADA testing pool and not exactly getting any younger by the day, it now looks as though a potential Heavyweight showcase bout against Jon Jones won't be happening any time soon.

White did say that he'd be happy to talk to 'The Beast Incarnate' about other things outside of the Octagon, though:

'I’d love to hear how he’s doing and how his family is, stuff like that. I think that’s gonna be the extent of the conversation with him.'

In reality, Lesnar will probably just wait until Vince McMahon comes calling yet again around Royal Rumble/WrestleMania season and put pen to paper on an even more lucrative deal than before. And who can blame him?
