Jon Jones: I would love to fight Brock Lesnar

Jon Jones: I would love to fight Brock Lesnar

The two will throw leather this Saturday night (July 29) inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

A Jones-Lesnar fight would present enough star power to presumably challenge UFC records for pay-per-view buys.

Some rivalries in mixed martial arts are built on promotion just to hype up a fight but that's certainly not the case when it comes to Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones.

He finished more than a half-second ahead of American Townley Haas , while the bronze went to Russia's Aleksandr Krasnykh . Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom shattered the 100m free world record by.35 leading off the Swedish women's 4x100m free.


- The first episode of UFC 214 Embedded ahead of Saturday's UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones 2 is now online.

Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, was suspended for a year after failing a drug test following his fight with Mark Hunt last year.

Jones' extreme inconsistencies coupled with his inactivity will make his fight with Cormier an uncertain one, even if he has the obvious talent to beat him and is still arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in MMA.

House Committee Wants Tech CEOs to Testify Over Internet Access Rules
The official topic is "Ground Rules for the Internet Ecosystem", and the hearing will be held on Thursday, September 7 at 10 a.m. That has further encouraged Republicans to try to pass legislation, which they last tried in 2015.


If the brawl that broke out between Cormier and Jones in 2014 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas wasn't evidence enough, UFC president Dana White revealed on Tuesday that he had actually planned to skip the scheduled UFC 214 pre-fight press conference but got a little anxious that things might get out of hand. He also received a one-year suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission, but could return to MMA after completing the ban.

Powell's POV: The story also includes comments that Jones made in a Facebook chat in which he said the fight would be a massive draw and really big for the sport. "It would be a great challenge".

"That's a big old boy", Jones added. But Lesnar has a good point as well because while Jones has only secured one lackluster win over Ovince Saint Preux since beating Cormier in January 2015, "DC" has won four straight fights over Anderson Silva, Anthony Johnson, and Alexander Gustafsson.

"I'm not mad at him anymore like I was before, but we'll see how this thing plays out", White said. "I'm not going to tell you what I would do".
