In one of the wackiest call outs of all time Jon Jones let Brock Lesner know his intentions are clear. He wants to meet him in the cage and beat him up. Beating him up is the name of the game in mixed martial arts but this fight would sure be a wild one.
Lesner who fights heavy weight closer to the limit of 265 pounds and Jones (now the champion of 205) fights at 205 pounds would make it an interesting matchup. Do they fight heavy weight or catch weight is the real question. There is no chance in the world that they fight at light heavyweight. It is absolutely impossible for Brock to get down to 205. Jones said in his post fight interview “Brock Lesnar, you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by someone 40 pounds lighter?.. meet me in the octagon”.
Now Brock’s response to this challenge was inviting, he wants Jones “anytime anywhere” but as I said there are a lot of things to work out about this fight. Weight class, location, rounds, card and will this be a main event. Very rarely does the UFC make a main event of a card a non-title fight but this one could definitely be an exception to that rule. Pitting one of the biggest draws in UFC history, Brock Lesnar, against the pound for pound best fighter in UFC history, Jon Jones, it would surely bring in lots of views.
Locking these two men in a cage would lead to absolute and utter destruction. Neither of them will want to make it out of there without a finish. There is no history of bad blood between these two men, at least to my knowledge. They are just smart fighters who know how to make the most amount of money they can.
Brock Lesnar is coming in at 5-3 with 1 no contest and Jones coming in at 23-1 win that loss coming by DQ. Surely on record alone that would make Jones the favorite. Despite Lesnar’s clear size advantage, you think that he would be the favorite but Jones skill advantage is what really puts him over the top.
I have Jones winning this fight all the way. No doubt about it, I have Jones knocking Lesnar out which may shock some people. Lesnar’s ability gets blown out of proportion because of his size. Yes he is an animal and can dominate people but Jones is the best fighter in the history of MMA and it’s very hard to argue that.
I look forward to further developments with this one because this could seriously contend with any PPV records the UFC currently has set. Book me down for Jones winner by KO.
