Dana White Gives Fresh Update On Brock Lesnar Situation Amid Potential Jon Jones Super-Fight

UFC president Dana White has revealed that he 'hasn't heard a word' from Brock Lesnar amid speculation over a heavyweight super-fight with Jon Jones.

Lesnar, 43, has been linked with a sensational return to MMA after he became a free agent following the end of his lucrative WWE contract.

White, 51, has previously admitted that he would be interested in bringing ex-UFC star Lesnar back to the octagon for a mega-fight with 'Bones.'

When he was asked if he heard from Lesnar, the UFC Chief told TMZ: "Not a word. 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. 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."

Former UFC heavyweight champ Lesnar hasn't fought inside the octagon since his UFC 200 clash with Mark Hunt in 2016.

When White was asked if he would hear back from the 'Beast Incarnate' further down the line, he responded: "Nope. Nothing. He's out doing his thing and ya know -- nothing."

'Bones,' who last fought against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February, has been significantly bulking up his physique for his heavyweight debut.
