Jon Jones Calls Out Brock Lesnar After Topping Daniel Cormier

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.

Jones lost his belt in early 2015 for his involvement in a hit-and-run accident in which a pregnant woman's arm was broken. "Brock Lesnar, if you want to get your a** beat by a man who is 40 pounds lighter than you, meet me in the Octagon". I think MMA fans would be really excited about that fight, but the general public wouldn't care about that fight.

That record is absurd, he's cleaned out the 205lbs division and the only element of interest resides in the land of the big men with Jones now targeting the biggest of them all. After a fan broached the idea of a fight with ex-champ Brock Lesnar, who is now retired after an anti-doping violation at UFC 200, Jones issued a formal callout.

"I feel like if I was to take a fight at heavyweight, it would be against a person that I would feel is the ideal matchup for me.I strike for a reason when I strike".

Speaking with Fox Sports afterwards, Jones elaborated on why he would like to go up against Lesnar. The 39-year-old ex-Olympic wrestler has been trading verbal shots with Jones ever since one of the best rivalries in MMA history was sparked by their brawl in a casino lobby during a promotional appearance in 2014.

In the night's co-main event, chants of "boring" rung around the arena as Tyron Woodley cruised to a unanimous five-round decision win against Demian Maia to retain his UFC welterweight title. Shortly following the kick, Jones out Cormier on the canvas where he began raining down some brutal ground and pound which forced the referee to step in and call the contest. I did a lot of right things to get back in this position.

"I thought the fight was going well", he admitted. Woodley scored a unanimous decision consequently defending the belt. Leg kicks from both fighters fired back and forth.

Cris Cyborg finally completed a remarkable career metamorphosis. As well Jimi Manuwa defeated Volkan Oezdemir by KO with punches in the first round.
