Brock Lesnar responds to Jon Jones: 'Be careful what you wish for'

Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt

Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt

Yes, the fight (and the devastating head kick) was absolutely incredible.

The thing leading up to that fight that still shocks the [expletive] out of me: It was Wednesday [before the fight].

Before leaving the octagon following postfight interviews, Jones reignited his growing rivalry with Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion.

'In the instance that I did get maybe a cut or something, I know it was because of that tendency he's talking about'.

He returned to WWE in 2012, the night after Wrestlemania 27 and attacked #John Cena.

Jones - who claimed his 10th career knockout - improved to a 23-1 win-loss record, strengthening his status as one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time. The former light heavyweight contender spoke with MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani on Monday to discuss life after retirement and named his terms for ending it. Brock's last mixed martial arts match came last year, where he defeated Mark Hunt in a one-off fight at UFC 200, via unanimous decision.

"Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40 pounds less than you, get in the Octagon", Jones said.

The impact rocked Cormier and Jones pounced to dispatch him a few seconds later. "The payday would be tremendous".

Jones is also more than confident that he can win against the massive wrestler, who cuts weight to make the 265lb heavyweight limit. Apparently, however, his team sees a pretty clear path to victory over the hulking superstar.

"Yes, we noticed that", said Jones. He goes, "We're gonna have to fight each other again; I need to break him". Visually, he is the more intimidating fighter and many will likely put money on him for that reason. What it would do for our sport would be tremendous. I am thankful for the time you gave me to try and defend myself and stay in the fight.

"Man I tell you what man, anybody at home that have let themselves down, you let your family down, you let your peers down, your co-workers down, you let yourself down, it's never over".
