UFC president Dana White has denied holding comeback talks with Brock Lesnar

"If you want to find out what it's like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40 lbs less than you, meet me here in the octagon".
Brock Lesnar faced Goldberg in this year's Wrestlemania which was said to be a rematch from Wrestlemania 20 where BrockLesnar defeated Goldberg and became WWE Universal Champion.
That simple response has essentially drawn a line in the sand and dared Jones to cross it. Obviously, there are many factors that will have to be overcome before a Jones-Lesnar showdown can be cemented. The pair met previously at UFC 182, with Jones handing Cormier his only professional loss after five, hard-fought rounds.
Much to the delight of fans Jones went ahead and comforted Cormier. He is a model champion, and I aspire to be more like that man. He's an amazing human being.
He goes "No, no, no. I have to break him".
Daniel Cormier suffered a very difficult loss to Jon Jones at UFC 214 and he's issued a humbling statement on the fight. Jones has more options on how to win.
"Would I fight Jon Jones?".
At that point, referee John McCarthy had little choice but to stop the fight.
The 30-year-old Jones had been stripped of the title twice, the first time in April 2015, just a few months after beating Cormier in their first matchup via unanimous decision in January of that same year.
The gifted has now removed the two clashes against his main rival, in order to consolidate its supremacy in the world of martial arts and bring his record to 23-1. White is also aware of the obstacles in its way, including the remainder of Lesnar's suspension for failing a doping test last year. The suspension was frozen once he announced his retirement from the UFC.
Is this fight going to happen?
The newly re-minted champ explained his message to Lesnar during his post-fight press conference.
Cormier was quickly diagnosed with a concussion and was sent to UC Irvine Medical Center for treatment.
Also on the card will be two additional title fights.
