Dana White has revealed Brock Lesnar is highly unlikely to return to the UFC after the "worst meeting" the two parties have ever held.

Lesnar was seen in the front row at UFC 146, where heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos beat Frank Mir. His appearance sparked rumours, fuelled by White himself, that Lesnar would return from the WWE.

White explained the situation on Friday, revealing an initial text from Lesnar that said: "I want to come to the fight, but keep it quiet because I don't want to tell anybody. What are you doing tonight? ... I want to talk face to face."

That meeting happened, but White confessed on Friday that the pair have not spoken since, such was the clash between the expectations on both sides.

"The meeting did not go well," White told MMAjunkie.com. "Probably the worst meeting we've ever had with Brock Lesnar, and I haven't talked to him since.

"It's one of those things, it's not worth getting into it publicly. It's not worth getting into the BS over it."
