Brock Lesnar responds to Jon "Bones" Jones' challenge
We live in the era of the super-fight, and it appears another may be brewing.
UFC star Jon "Bones" Jones regained the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship this past Saturday night when he defeated Daniel Cormier in the third round via TKO. However, Jones' ascent back to the top of the Light Heavyweight division quickly took a backseat when he got on the microphone after the bout and laid a challenge down to Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.
"Bones" boisterously invited Brock to meet him in the octagon despite Jones being a light heavyweight and Lesnar competing at heavyweight during his UFC career. Lesnar, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, quickly responded with a statement to the Associated Press, "Be careful what you wish for, young man."
With Lesnar focused on his upcoming Universal Championship defense against Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe in a Fatal 4-Way Match at SummerSlam, does he have the time to seriously ponder a showdown with Jones? And, if so, could we perhaps see "Bones" enter a WWE ring to make this dream match a reality? Stay in step with WWE.com for all the latest on this developing story.
