"Jon Jones challenged Brock Lesnar after Jones KO win over Daniel Cromier [sic] at UFC214 [on] Saturday night and the UFC found out what they needed to know, and that is the public will buy a Bones-Brock battle in the Octagon". "DC" has been ordered to sit on the sidelines for 60 days due to his brutal third-round knockout loss to arch rival Jon Jones. Lesnar was also quick to respond to the official callout, warning Jones to be 'careful what he wished for'.
Sounds like Brock and Jones are both on board with fighting, however, Dana White said the fight most likely won't happen because neither Jones nor White have heard from Lesnar in a long time.
The fight would most certainly be one of the best-selling UFC pay-per-view (PPV) events of all-time, and it could be able to flirt with the record for the best.
Could WWE and UFC each have their own big money match featuring Jones and Lesnar?
It wouldn't be healthy for him to cut weight as he already has a history with diverticulitis. So realistically the fight may not happen until 2018. However, this fight with Jones gives him a 40 lb. advantage. Lesnar retired mid-suspension, so his one-year ban remained "frozen" until he chooses to re-enter the testing pool, for which he still has over six months remaining. Not even a discussion either way - 100 percent.' It's hardly a surprise, as Lesnar is one of the biggest draws in pro-wrestling just like he is the UFC.
Regardless of the hurdles and roadblocks to clear in order to make the fight happen, however, it's an obvious booking that the UFC will do everything in their power to make - even if they have to wait nearly a year's time to accomplish that feat. "Hopefully, they will get onto that and try to make it happen".
