BROCK LESNAR has been named as a shock potential opponent for UFC star Jon Jones in a mega-fight – even though the former wrestling superstar would be a “huge longshot”.
Respected wrestling reporter Dave Meltzer reckons the big clash could be ON.
Former WWE superstar Lesnar had previously quit UFC after a drug ban and massive fine in 2017.
The 43-year-old failed a drugs test after battering Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
But light heavyweight champion Jones, 33, is looking for some big, moneyspinning fights to whet the public’s appetite – and Lesnar fits the bill.
Jones has previously taunted Lesnar by telling his fellow American: “I’ll beatya ass.”
But Lesnar has rebuked Jones and told him he had better be careful what he wishes for.
Lesnar became a huge star in WWE after quitting Mixed Martial Arts.
Meltzer, of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, broke the news that Lesnar is being considered for a mega-fight with Jones, with just one loss in 28 fights.
Many thought Jones had launched a programme to lose weight and get fit ahead of a major fight which could put him alongside the likes of UFC legends like Conor McGregor.
