Brock Lesnar Issues Succinct Response To Jon Jones Call-Out

Brock Lesnar

"I don't know, man", Cormier said.

After 2 1/2 rounds of even, high-level striking, Jones landed a left head kick that caught Cormier leaning in. But the UFC didn't add a 145-pound weight class until previous year, and a failed doping test was another obstacle in her meandering path to get into the world's biggest promotion.

Cormier reigned atop the division for most of Jones' absence, but he realized his glittering title belt was affixed with an enormous asterisk. "Daniel Cormier, guys, he has absolutely no reason to hang his head". He's a standup champion and a model champion but unfortunately I came to this game at a young age with big ideals and there's no mercy in combat so I had to do what I had to do. "He is a true champion for the rest of his life". Because I know Bisping will fight. Oh man, that's so disappointing.

The fight was competitive early on, as Jones opened up with a bevvy of kicks, attacking Cormier's body and legs. "Even the haters, all the things your said, I love you too because you motivated me". Last time he fought he was granted a testing exemption, which resulted in two failed drug tests, a suspension and a civil lawsuit filed by his opponent.

Before he exited the Octagon, however, Jones called out Brock Lesnar for a mic-drop moment.


"Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40lbs less than you, meet me in the octagon", said Jones, before exiting the cage at the Honda Center in Anaheim. It was Jones's first bout since returning from a one-year doping ban, and the pair's first matchup since Jones defeated Cormier by unanimous decision in 2015.

In the co-main event, the Welterweight title was on the line as champion Tyron Woodley took on arguably the best jiu-jitsu practioner in MMA, Damian Maia.

Jones and fellow light heavyweight Volkan Oezdemir, who knocked out third-ranked Jimi Manuwa in 42 seconds, each earned $50,000 for Performance of the Night.

"Bones" kept landing the kicks low at the start of the third round. Then, Cris Cyborg stopped Tonya Evinger by third-round TKO to capture the vacant UFC women's featherweight title.

Elsewhere on the card, fan-favourite American veterans Robbie Lawler and Donald Cerrone served up a three-round thriller, with Lawler edging the decision on the scorecards.
