Jon Jones Wants 'Huge Money Fight' Against Brock Lesnar

Jon Jones vs. Brock Lesnar, anyone?!

Jones is finally back in the UFC mix and he's eyeing up future fights including a big, big one against Lesnar.


The ex-UFC heavyweight champion appears to be returning to the famed Octagon after entering the cage with Daniel Cormier, following his victory versus Stipe Miocic back at UFC 226.

Cormier vs. Lesnar is a potential mega-fight in 2019, and Jones also wants a piece of the WWE superstar.

"I don't really know about the deserving part. DC's a pretty deserving guy," Jones said.

"He does a lot of right things, carries the sport very well. But fighting Brock Lesnar is always appealing, you know what I mean? That's a win-win situation. That's a huge money fight."

Jones has been flirting with a move up to heavyweight and a bout opposite Lesnar could just be the perfect time to make that venture.

"That's me fighting a guy that's a hell of a lot bigger than me and everyone wins in that situation," he added.

"I win because of the courage that it takes to step in there against a guy that's way bigger than you . I win because the pay-per-view that would follow it.

"The fans would win. It'd just be great for the sport, be good for everybody involved and I'm totally always up for that."

Lesnar hasn't fought under the premiere MMA banner since UFC 200, where he beat Mark Hunt though his fight was marred after a positive drug test.

He pissed hot but he's served his suspension and back in USADA testing pool, ahead of a potential return in 2019.

If Lesnar does indeed don a pair of MMA glove next year, he's got no shortage of opponents.

Who do you want to see him fight should he return to the UFC?
