Jon Jones may have the fight of his life ahead of him this weekend at UFC 214, but the former UFC light heavyweight seems to have another man already in his sights, Brock Lesnar.
Speaking today at the UFC 214 pre-fight press conference, Jones ended proceedings with a bombshell following a question directed at Dana White as to whether previous reports were true that a fight between the pair was in the works.
White said that he’d heard of nothing of sort, but that was before Jones finished things off with the mic drop.
“It’s crazy, I don’t even know where that thing came from or how it started,” White said. “First of all, believe me, I’ve not talked to Brock Lesnar. I don’t know. So, I mean, I don’t know if you’ve talked to Brock Lesnar [directed at Jones], he said, ‘not recently,’ me either. So, yeah, I’m telling you right now I’ve not talked to Brock Lesnar. It sounds like nobody believes me, but it’s not true. I have not talked to Brock Lesnar and according to Jon, he hasn’t either.’
Jones then finish proceeding with a bang as the crowd showed their approval with big cheers.
“I’ll deal with Daniel, then I’ll deal with Brock Lesnar.”
It was a fitting end to what had been a lively press conference.
