Jon Jones called out Brock Lesnar at UFC 214 on Saturday night, and The Beast warned him for doing so.
Jones regained the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Daniel Cormier and during his post-match speech he looked into the camera and said, “Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40 pounds less than you, meet me in the octagon.”
The Associated Press asked Lesnar to comment after UFC 214 and his response was direct and to the point: “Be careful what you wish for, young man.”
Lesnar recently re-entered the USADA testing pool and is considering a return to MMA after his WWE contract expires next year. UFC officials initially denied the report, but Dana White has now changed his tune and claims he has no knowledge of Lesnar’s USADA status.
White also conceded that Jones’ wish wouldn’t be granted anytime soon, yet Jon remained serious about his call out during a post match press conference.
“We’re serious about it, and it would be great for the MMA world. It would bring more of the general public to mixed martial arts, and that’s what we need.”
