UFC Quick Quote: Dana White says Brock Lesnar is not coming back to MMA

Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC

You hear that? That's the sound of the UFC president putting the final nail in the coffin on a potential Octagon return for Brock Lesnar.

"Brock Lesnar is not coming back. Brock Lesnar is not fighting. I mean, does he want to come back? We've talked about him wanting to come back. He feels like he wasn't 100 percent while he was here and he feels like he sold himself a little short and all the stuff that I've told you guys before, but no, he's not (coming back)."

Sorry, Alistair Overeem, but Brock Lesnar isn't going to be making a return to mixed martial arts (MMA) anytime soon ... if ever. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White put all the rumors to bed -- some of which he may have helped fuel -- during the UFC 169: "Barao vs. Faber 2" post-fight press conference (via FOX Sports) this past weekend (Feb. 1, 2014) in Newark, New Jersey. With that being said, Overeem will have to look for another man to call out for his next fight after the striking Dutchman asked for a rematch against Brock following his win over Frank Mir in "The Garden State." And the search for the next UFC pay-per-view (PPV) draw, continues.
