Jones beats Cormier by TKO at UFC 214

Jon Jones made sure to address the Brock Lesnar return rumor following his win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214, as he called out the current WWE Universal Champion.

Upon the mention of Lesnar's name, the crowd in Anaheim erupted, with Jones continuing, "If you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by someone who weighs 40 pounds less than you, meet me in the octagon".

But after the fight, Jones attempted to put their differences behind them as he praised Cormier as both a fighter and person.

"Be careful what you wish for, young man". "If I did come back, it would just be to fight the legend Jon Jones". "In the instance that I did get maybe a cut or something, I know it was because of that tendency he's talking about". Kick in the head.

Jon Jones reclaimed his light-heavyweight title, stopping Daniel Cormier with a vicious head kick and a finish on the ground. And that's what we need, we need to expand our sport. "I just want to do it". "I think it's a winnable fight".

Lesnar returned to mixed martial arts last year with a victory, but he is under contract to the WWE as a professional wrestler until next spring.

McCarthy himself responded to questions by fans on Sunday, who believed he should've stopped the fight quicker.

Talk of a superfight heated up abruptly this week when Jones and Lesnar traded verbal jabs.

Johnson would later tell Ariel Helwani that he's out of the USADA pool, but was open to fighting Jon Jones "for the right amount of money".

Jones is now once again the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. "At the same time, I fear no man. I strike for a reason when I strike". He had an amazing career with UFC, becoming the UFC heavyweight champion during his reign. His only loss was by disqualification in the hands of Matt Hamill in 2009.

"To be honest with you, I have no clue where this Brock Lesnar situation came from, how it started" Jones explained.

The crossover appeal of Lesnar cannot be understated.
