UFC chief Dana White hasn't heard back from Brock Lesnar over Jon Jones fight offer

UFC chief Dana White has revealed Brock Lesnar has snubbed his offer to fight Jon Jones.

Lesnar has not replied to the MMA supremo as he bids to start making arrangements for the mega clash.



And White reckons Lesnar is running scared and the American does not expect to hear back from the former wrestler.

The UFC chief insisted he would work hard to get the eagerly-anticipated bout on between Jones and 43-year-old former heavyweight champion Lesnar.

White even went on air to invite Lesnar for talks.

When asked if he had heard from Lesnar, White told TMZ Sports: "Not a word.

"The guy has had a long killer career.

"He actually came in and became a UFC heavyweight champ and the guy's made a lot of money.

"I just don't see him coming back over here again at his age."

"I'd love to hear how he's doing and how his family is, stuff like that.

"I think that's gonna be the extent of the conversation with him."

When asked if he would hear from Lesnar of he give it more time he admitted he would not expect to hear anything as the mammoth American probably does not want such a tough fight at his age.

White said: "Nope. Nothing. He's out doing his thing and ya know — nothing."

If Brock decides to walk away forever he will leave with his head held high.

He beat Randy Couture for the heavyweight belt in 2008 – and defended against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin.

Light-heavyweight Jones is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in UFC.

The 33-year-old from New York has 26 wins from 28 fights, with one loss and one disqualification.

He has won ten fights by knockout.
