Jon Jones Is The New UFC Light Heavyweight Champion & Now He Wants To Face Brock Lesnar
Jon Jones is back atop the mountain in UFC, and he wasted no time in letting everyone know who he wants to face next. During his post fight octagon speech, Jones again challenged Brock Lesnar, the former UFC Heavyweight champion and current WWE Universal champ.
“Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy that weighs 40 pounds less than you, come meet me in the octagon,” – MMA Junkie
Lesnar’s response, like most things Brock does, was no nonsense and emphatic:
Lesnar heard that and had a simple, direct response to The Associated Press.
“Be careful what you wish for, young man,” Lesnar said – MMA Junkie
I’m a casual MMA fan at best, but the thought of those two locking horns inside the octagon is as exciting a matchup as I can imagine. The fight has a few barriers to overcome, notably Brock’s current suspension due to an anti doping violation from his last fight in the Octagon last summer. While the fight can’t happen anytime soon, Jones and Lesnar arguably have the most pull to get what they want in the UFC, and there’s no doubt that if they work out a deal, it would make Jones, Lesnar & the UFC top brass very, very rich. I can’t wait to see how this story continues to unfold.
