With Brock Lesnar potentially moving on from WWE, UFC star Jon Jones sensed an opportunity.
Jones called out Lesnar on Twitter Monday night:
Brock I’ll beatcho ass too
The inclusion of the former WWE champion probably wasn’t a coincidence. PWInsider.com’s Mike Johnson and ESPN’s Marc Raimondi reported Lesnar’s contract with WWE has expired, freeing him up to explore all of his options. Perhaps a return to UFC would be on the cards.
It looked like a fight between Lesnar and Daniel Cormier was on the cards after the former interrupted the latter’s post-fight interview at UFC 226 in July 2018.
That never materialized.

Likewise, Jones mentioned Lesnar directly during his Octagon interview at UFC 214 in July 2017 came to nothing.
Still, a Jones-Lesnar fight is a tantalizing possibility.
