Jon Jones Explains Brock Lesnar Callout, Lesnar Responds

Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar

But about midway through the third round, a vicious left kick from Jones sent Cormier reeling across the Octagon, and the former took advantage by staying on the attack. You want to know what it's like to get your (butt) kicked by a who weighs guy 40 pounds less than you?

The UFC also pulled off its best event out of its seven visits to Honda Center.

His brother, Jon "Bones" Jones, had a fight with Daniel Cormier in UFC 214.

Jones has the pick of the light heavyweight division should he opt to defend his belt in his next fight.

Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion but not fought on the promotion since July 2016, when he beat Mark Hunt but the fight was ruled a "no contest" after he tested positive for a banned substance. But I feel like I don't have much to prove.

But Jones wasted little time adding fuel to the fire as he called out Lesnar from inside the cage.

"I feel like if I was to take a fight at heavyweight, it would be against a person that I would feel is the flawless matchup for me.I strike for a reason when I strike". But with Ronda Rousey fresh off two defeats and an uncertain future, Conor McGregor moonlighting in boxing while nearing a year of inactivity and Georges St-Pierre's comeback pushed off until at least November because of injury, UFC needs Jones star badly at the moment.

Despite not getting the better of the early exchanges, Jones threw up a head kick that caught Cormier off guard and essentially ended the fight after he smelled blood and went in for the kill.

Cyborg won the vacant featherweight championship with a third-round TKO of a game Tonya Evinger on Saturday, basking in the adulation of the fans and the accomplishment.

In contrast to the combative nature of their public dialogue over the past three years, Jones praised Cormier afterward. I guess if he wins both fights then there is no rivalry.

Jones' next opponent for the 205-pound belt could be Swiss sensation Volkan Oezdemir, who kicked off the pay-per-view show with a sensational 22-second knockout of Britain's Jimi Manuwa. "I need a cheque, lets get some big fights!"

"I came out fast in the first round because I thought if I got on top of him, I could stop him", Lawler said.
