Lesnar to Jon Jones: "Careful what you wish for, young man"

July 30, 2017 - 1:42 am

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jon Jones had barely reclaimed his UFC title when he called out Brock Lesnar to be his next opponent.

And Lesnar was listening.

Right after Jones stopped Daniel Cormier in the third round at UFC 214 on Saturday, he reignited his growing rivalry with Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion.

The Associated Press reached Lesnar shortly after he watched the championship fight and then heard Jones call him out.

"Be careful what you wish for, young man," Lesnar replied.

A potential bout between Jones and Lesnar would be one of the biggest events in UFC history. Lesnar is an extraordinary pay-per-view draw as arguably the most popular fighter in UFC history, while Jones' victory over Cormier likely returns him to the top of most pound-for-pound lists as the world's best fighter.
