Jon Jones insists he would ’embarrass’ Brock Lesnar after Kurt Angle stirs fight speculation:-
The UFC have tried and failed to make a super-fight between Lesnar and Daniel Cormier and the WWE star retired from professional MMA earlier this year.
But that has not stopped speculation Lesnar could make another surprise comeback to the UFC and fellow wrestler Kurt Angle stirred the pot this week by revealing the former heavyweight champion was desperate to fight Jones. ‘I know he said that he’s retired,’ Angle told ESPN. ‘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.’ Jones, the UFC’s light heavyweight champion, was quick to respond to Angle’s comments, insisting he had a clear edge over Lesnar. ‘He knows that’s what his friends want to hear, but he doesn’t really want this fight. Trust me,’ Jones said on social media. ‘Brock is way too slow, I’ll embarrass him.’ One of Jones’ long-time rivals Cormier appears set to retire after losing his heavyweight title to Stipe Miocic at UFC 241.
Miocic gained revenge over Cormier and reclaimed his title, and the beaten champion admitted he would now discuss hanging up his gloves with his family.
Cormier’s children and wife were cageside to see Miocic’s victory and the defeat might end any hope of a third fight between DC and Jones.
Despite Jones’ two wins over Cormier, one was overturned to a no-contest after a failed drug test, fight fans are keen to see DC take on his old enemy one more time.
Jones has teased a move up to heavyweight in the future, but is expected to remain at light heavyweight for the foreseeable future.
