After defeating Daniel Cormier and regaining the UFC Light Heavyweight title, Jon Jones challenged Brock Lesnar in his post-fight interview inside the Octagon.
“Brock Lesnar. If you wanna 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,” Jones said. When Jones mentioned Lesnar’s name, the crowd in Anaheim popped. Rumors of the fight between the two started picking up last week and Jones even said during the UFC 214 press conference that he’ll deal with Lesnar after he deals with D.C. and regains his title.
Jones is a light heavyweight, meaning he has to bulk up to take on Lesnar and move one weight class up. For UFC 200, his last UFC fight, Lesnar weighed in at 265.5lbs while Jones for his fight yesterday weighed in at 204.5lbs.
