White: Lesnar, Jones 'both want' fight

Paul Heyman Congratulates Lesnar on Record-Breaking Title Run Upstate NY's Jon Jones may fight Brock Lesnar in UFC comeback
Charles Bowen | 12 June, 2018, 14:24

Perhaps what White was referring to is Lesnar losing the title, likely at SummerSlam, which could wrap up any further commitments since he would no longer be carrying the Universal title. He also confirmed that Lesnar's WWE deal expires this Summer.

Both are now ineligible to fight, stemming from their respective in-competition drug test failures, but it's not beyond the realms of possibility for a scenario to take place in which they share the Octagon with one another. But his case with USADA remains unresolved.

Upstate New York native Jon "Bones" Jones may get another chance at Ultimate Fighting Championships after getting his mixed martial arts license revoked earlier this year.

That's coming directly from UFC president Dana White, who brought up the match-up yet again when asked about Lesnar's potential return to the Octagon. Where Jones fits in the picture is one of the things he's working on. "That's up to (the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, the UFC's drug testing administrator)".

White says he's waiting on a USADA ruling to determine a possible fight between Lesnar and Jones. "USADA's going to decide that". Even if Lesnar did not become a free agent, he has already fought for UFC whilst under WWE contract.

All of that said, White is a promoter first and foremost and he obviously realizes the dollars a Lesnar vs. Jones fight could draw.

The former UFC heavyweight champion last fought in the summer of 2016, when he returned from a five-year layoff to claim a unanimous decision over the heavy-handed Mark Hunt at UFC 200 but that result was promptly overturned to a No Contest when it emerged that Lesnar had tested positive for a banned substance. "That's a fun fight".
