UFC 214: Best moments from Anaheim

UFC 214: Best moments from Anaheim”

Jon Jones has his sights set on Brock Lesnar after reclaiming the UFC light heavyweight title with a third-round knockout of Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.

"Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy that weighs 40 pounds less than you, come meet me in the octagon", Jones said, via Simon Samano of Cormier calmly chased his opponent around the cage, trying to find his range, and landed an occasional hard shot. Lesnar was quick to respond and warned Jones to be careful about what he wished for.

While I'm sure that he's open to doing something with WWE, I don't see Jones agreeing to do a pro wrestling match with Brock Lesnar, as that would make far less money than an MMA fight between the two would.

For starters, a well-rounded fighter with a speed and reach, like Jones, can neutralize a one-dimentional wrestler, like Lesnar, even if the latter is bigger and stronger. But that didn't stop Joe Rogan from shoving a microphone in the face of the visibly shaken Cormier in front of millions who tuned in.

Woodley was able to avoid takedown attempt after takedown attempt from Maia, and stayed patient in picking when to strike to claim a unanimous decision.

It's pretty hard to see holes in JR's logic here.

At that point, referee John McCarthy had little choice but to stop the fight. The odds as of Monday morning were Jones -360, Lesnar +280.

And prior to that incident, Jones was also suspended by the UFC - and dropped by his sponsor, Reebok - following a hit-and-run incident in Albuquerque, N.M., in April 2015. White is also aware of the obstacles in its way, including the remainder of Lesnar's suspension for failing a doping test last year.

Additionally, the fight would disrupt the UFC's light heavyweight division. If he wins both fights, there is no rivalry. "In all honestly I was kind of in shock".

"I want to take this time to thank Daniel Cormier for being my biggest rival and motivator", Jones said.

"Right now, Stipe is looking extremely impressive". I don't think I realized what I was doing until I actually had a mic in front of him.
