Jon Jones Says He's "Serious" About Fight with Brock Lesnar — UFC

Jon Jones Says He's

Before Jon Jones knocked him out in the main event of UFC 214 to win the light heavyweight title, former champion Daniel Cormier had never been finished before.

After the undercard, the Cormier-Jones rematch will start somewhere between 10 and 11 p.m. ET.

"Be careful what you wish for, young man".

That simple response has essentially drawn a line in the sand and dared Jones to cross it. Obviously, there are many factors that will have to be overcome before a Jones-Lesnar showdown can be cemented. Then he sustained a series of sharp jabs at the hands of opponent Jones, several when he was already down. I definitely wouldn't try to wrestle with him the whole time.

In the most anticipated bout of the year, Jones (23-1) proved too much for the champion, stunning Cormier with a perfectly timed head kick before finishing him off with a series of brutal strikes on the ground. Jackson-Wink MMA teammate Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone lost a unanious welterweight decision (29-28 on each judge's card) to former champion Robbie Lawler. I mean, it would be a massive draw. "I need a cheque, lets get some big fights!" He did not dare to call out the beast incarnate that once dominated the Octagon. The odds as of Monday morning were Jones -360, Lesnar +280.

"Even the haters, all the things your said, I love you too because you motivated me".

And it was a long road back after 2 1/2 years of drama for the New York native who trains in Albuquerque. Smelling blood, Bones went in for the kill, nearly missing with a flying knee.

"It's fun to talk about, but the reality of it happening anytime soon, it's not a reality", White said.

As outlandish as that callout initially sounded, it seems like the fight might actually happen. Outside of the financial windfall, "I think it would be great for the MMA world".

Cormier was quickly diagnosed with a concussion and was sent to UC Irvine Medical Center for treatment.

The crossover appeal of Lesnar cannot be understated.

They also released odds for the outcome of the actual fight. "I can't tell you what I would do".

Lesnar has fought just once since 2011. Recently, he was challenged by Jon Jones when he won his match at UFC 214.
