However, the 45-year-old WWE superstar hasn’t fought inside the cage since 2016 and White doesn’t expect him to come back any time soon.
The American promoter insists that while he and The Beast remain on good terms, he doesn’t expect to welcome him back any time soon.
White told Sports Illustrated: “Brock and I have a great relationship, and we always have, but I don’t think Brock wants to fight anymore.
“Brock’s made a lot of money. He came into the UFC and won the heavyweight title.
“He’s got nothing left to prove. I don’t think he’d want to do it.”
Lesnar’s most recent UFC fight took place seven years ago when he beat Mark Hunt in a controversial encounter.
The American grappler tested positive for banned substances after the bell and the result was ultimately deemed a no contest.
The heavyweight athlete joined White’s promotion in 2008, four years after his shock departure from WWE.

Lesnar suffered a miserable loss to Frank Mir on his debut after beating Min-Soo Kim on his MMA bow at Dynamite USA a year earlier.
But the two-time NCAA All-American bounced back and won four matches on the trot against Heath Herring, Shane Carwin and his former rival Mir.
The 10-time world champion also beat UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture for the heavyweight title.
However, Lesnar then lost the title to Cain Velasquez, was defeated by Alistair Overeem soon after and rejoined WWE before his one-off return to face Hunt.
