Jon Jones claims he would 'embarrass' Brock Lesnar if WWE superstar returns to UFC
JON JONES claims he would “embarrass” Brock Lesnar if the WWE star ever returned to UFC to face him.
The 33-year-old relinquished his light-heavyweight title last week as he eyes a move up to the heavyweight division.
Both Francis Ngannou and UFC heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic have been touted as potential opponents for Bones.
However, former title holder Lesnar also wants to fight Jones, according to fellow WWE legend Kurt Angle.
But the ever-confident Jones believes The Beast Incarnate would provide him with any problems whatsoever.
Angle had previously said: “I know he said that he's retired.
“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."
Reacting to those comments, Jones responded with: “He knows that's what his friends want to hear, but he doesn't really want this fight. Trust me.
“Brock is way too slow, I'll embarrass him.”
Lesnar last fought inside the octagon back at UFC 200 in July 2016.
Meanwhile Jones controversially defended his belt last time out against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February.
UFC president Dana White was recently quizzed on the prospect of Jones getting an instant championship shot at Miocic in the heavyweight division.

He said:”[Jon Jones is] the longtime light heavyweight champion.
“In my opinion, he's the greatest of all time, and if he wants to come back and take a shot at the heavyweight championship, I wouldn't have a problem with that.
“But he can't just jump in front of Ngannou right now.”
