Warning: Story contains coarse language

Despite recent talks of a potential fight between former champions Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar, UFC president Dana White doesn't expect the latter will return to the sport.

"I don't think Lesnar would come back again," White told Sports Illustrated's Justin Barrasso. "Lesnar's made a lot of money, and with his age and everything else, I just don't see it happening.

"I always say fighting is a young man's game," White continued. "Brock came in here when nobody f------ thought he could, and look what he did. He became the heavyweight champion. He's accomplished everything you need to accomplish. To come back and fight Jones, it would be all about the money, and money is one thing that guy doesn't need."

Lesnar became a free agent in late August after his contract with the WWE expired, leading to speculation he might return to the Octagon.

Jones, a former light heavyweight titleholder who's planning to move up to the heavyweight division, immediately expressed interest in fighting Lesnar. White said he'd be willing to book the contest if both parties were interested.

But a month later, White said he believes a superfight between Jones and middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is more likely.
