Jones did not hesitate to show his intention saying that he would fight Lesnar. "It would be a great challenge; that's a big old boy", Jones said. "That's a big old boy". "Would I fight Jon Jones?". "I definitely feel like this is the right time and the right spot and I'm in the right weight class at 135, and if you're in the right weight class, you can go down 10 pounds or up 10 pounds and I'm definitely willing to do that". "Actually, you know what, I don't want a commentator job, I just want to make you cry backstage, again".
With the UFC desperately lacking star power during Conor McGregor's lucrative boxing experiment and amid the uncertainty over Ronda Rousey's fighting future, a super-fight between Jones and Lesnar would be just what the doctor ordered in terms of a guaranteed pay-per-view triumph.
"I would love to fight Brock Lesnar". It was the second time in two years that Jones was banned from competing inside the mixed martial arts cage, but the first the suspension stemmed from PEDs. Apparently in the midst of negotiations with WWE, Lesnar's return would be a major surprise considering his exit from MMA came with a USADA suspension and retirement.
Jones got in his shots though, toying with Cormier for his controversial weigh-in before UFC 210 in April. Indeed that was a true statement, yet Jones vs. Lesnar was still a topic of discussion at yesterday's UFC 214 pre-fight presser. The rumours were quashed by the UFC but they have maintained silence over yet another possible return for Lesnar in the UFC.
"Would I fight Jon Jones?". Jones has suffered through a host of personal problems and endured two lengthy spells on the sidelines, the second of which will only come to an end when he actually steps in with "D.C' at the Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday". Meanwhile, Jones donned the trappings of a God-fearing Christian dude who fought for the glory of Christ and even got a large, bold "Philippians 4:13"-I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me-tattoo on his chest".
