Jon Jones says he'd "embarrass" Brock Lesnar if the WWE superstar returned to the UFC for a mega-fight.


Jones, 33, vacated his UFC light-heavyweight title and announced his move to the heavyweight division on social media last week.

Top contender Francis Ngannou and UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic have been touted as potential opponents for 'Bones'.

Not to mention former UFC heavyweight title holder Lesnar who wants to fight Jones, according to Kurt Angle.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani, he said: "I know he said that he's retired.

"The one fight he wants, and I don't know if it's ever going to happen, but he wants to go up against Jon Jones."

But Jones believes he'd take out Lesnar with ease if they met inside the Octagon.

"He knows that's what his friends want to hear, but he doesn't really want this fight. Trust me," he stated.

"Brock is way too slow, I'll embarrass him."

Lesnar hasn't fought in the UFC since UFC 200 back in July 2016.

Jones, meanwhile, last fought in February when he narrowly beat Dominick Reyes at UFC 247.

And the former UFC light-heavyweight king could get an immediate shot at the UFC heavyweight title, but only after Ngannou.

"[Jon Jones is] the longtime light heavyweight champion. In my opinion, he's the greatest of all time, and if he wants to come back and take a shot at the heavyweight championship, I wouldn't have a problem with that," Dana White explained.

"But he can't just jump in front of Ngannou right now."
