As previously reported, since it became publicly known that Brock Lesnar is currently a free agent after his last WWE contract expired, UFC President Dana White later said that he would book a heavyweight attraction fight between Lesnar and former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. TMZ Sports spoke to White this week and asked for an update on Lesnar.

When asked if he had heard from Brock Lesnar yet, White responded, “Not a word.” When the interviewer followed that up with if White wanted to hear from Lesnar, White explained, “Listen, sure. 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.”

White also added on the former UFC heavyweight champion, “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.”

Lesnar last fought in MMA at UFC 200 in 2016. His decision win over Mark Hunt was overturned to a No Contest due to a failed drug test. You can view a clip of that chat with Dana White below:
