Super-Fight Between Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones Intrigues Dana White

UFC president Dana White really wants to put Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones inside the Octagon vs. one another.

Several problems, though, stand in the way of that coming to fruition.

First, Lesnar is currently still working with the WWE, as he recently broke the record for longest title defense – in the new era – in terms of days holding the belt. The former UFC heavyweight champion also likely faces a suspension whenever he returns to combat sports due to a failed drug test.

Jones, meanwhile, is also under investigation by the USADA for his failed drug tests last year. “Bones” could be suspended up to four years if found guilty.

And on Twitter, Jones stated that he isn’t all that interested in making the move to heavyweight, but did leave open the possibility of superfights intriguing him.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, White stated “Jon Jones is very interested in Brock Lesnar, and Brock very interested in Jon. I’ll end up figuring that out in the next month. I don’t know how that’s gonna play out.”

Lesnar returned at UFC 200 in 2016 and bested Mark Hunt after an extended hiatus. That result was overturned to a no-contest upon the failed drug tests. Jones also bested Daniel Cormier in his last bout, only to have that flipped to a no-contest due to failed drug tests.

So, is Lesnar vs. Jones a bout you want to see take place? Or would you rather both men fight in their respective divisions? Or, even stay away from MMA due to their use of banned substances.
