Brock Lesnar has stood toe-to-toe with some of the toughest opponents he can find. There are still a few opponents that fans never got to see take on Lesnar, and it’s unlikely that the confrontation will happen. Jon Jones is a fight that many fans speculated on for the Beast Incarnate, but it never came to fruition, and it seems that Jones will wants that fight.

Jon Jones is one of the most dominant fighters in UFC history. He recently decided that it is time to throw his hat in the ring for an opponent for Brock Lesnar once again. Despite the fight being discussed for several years now, it has yet to come to happen. However, Jones is still eager to change the situation.

Jon Jones has been vocal about his desire to face Lesnar, who is a former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE superstar. In an interview with ESPN in 2019, Jones said that he wanted to fight Lesnar because he “knows he can beat him.”

During a recent interview with Sporting News Fights, Jon Jones spoke about the fight that never was against Brock Lesnar. He also wants to see that big-money fight go down.

“I think fighting Brock Lesnar would have been really cool,” Jones stated. “You know, Brock isn’t the most technical fighter, but he has a massive fanbase, he’s a lot bigger than me, and it would have been one of those cool David and Goliath situations. It would have been cool for cross-sport promoting and I think we both would have done great things for our families and for our team. You know, financially, that would have been massive. Never say never. Brock, if you’re out there….”

While Lesnar has not competed in MMA since 2016, he has remained a popular figure in the combat sports world. Jones has also had a storied career, with his only loss coming from a disqualification due to illegal elbows.

Despite the obstacles that stand in the way of a potential Jones vs. Lesnar fight, Jones remains hopeful that it will happen. In a recent interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan, Jones stated that he believes the fight would generate a massive amount of interest and revenue for both fighters.

Jon Jones also stated that he has no qualms about moving up to the heavyweight division, where Brock Lesnar competes. He also believes that his size and speed would give him an advantage over Lesnar.

That being said, there are still several roadblocks that need to be overcome before the fight can happen. Brock Lesnar is currently under contract with WWE, and it is unclear if the company would allow him to compete in another sport while under contract. Then again, Lesnar was recently telling co-workers in WWE that he is “finishing up” his time in the company.

Despite these challenges, Jon Jones remains optimistic that he will one day face Lesnar in the octagon. Fans of both fighters continue to hope that the fight will happen, as it would undoubtedly be one of the biggest events in combat sports history. Only time will tell if this is just a clever way for Brock Lesnar to snag another massive WWE contract.

Let’s get to know each other. Me? Well, I have a master’s degree in Journalism from Marshall University, but I don’t really like to talk about that. I was a stand-up comedian for eight years, but I don’t really like to talk about that either. I write a lot. I once worked for a company that writes blurbs for online gambling games. Those paid $.75 each. So, if you frequent that kind of thing, then you’re welcome for the description for Biker Chicken Slots or Crazy Granny’s Scratchers. I wish I had more to tell, but due to my crippling anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome, that has become increasingly worse over the years, I tend to keep to myself.
