Jon Jones Calls Out Brock Lesnar after UFC 214 – Lesnar Responds

Jul 30, 2017 - by Bill Fenbers

Jon Jones defeated Daniel Cormier, at Saturday’s UFC 214 in Anaheim. CA, to reclaim the Undisputed Light Heavyweight Championship.  Following his post-fight interview, in which he heaped praise on Cormier, Jones took the microphone, and called out former UFC Heavyweight Champion, current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.

“Brock Lesnar, you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by someone who weighs 40 pounds less than you?  Meet me in the Octagon.”

Jones then dropped the microphone and left the cage.

Lesnar, who defeated Samoa Joe Saturday night in Detroit, to retain the WWE Universal Championship, responded to Jones through the Associated Press by saying, “Be careful what you wish for, young man.”

Lesnar is still under suspension by the USADA for failing multiple drug tests around his one-off appearance in UFC 200.  Lesnar would have to officially come out of retirement from UFC and serve his suspension, before a bout with Jon Jones is seriously considered.
