SHOULD, WOULD, COULD BROCK – JONES REALLY HAPPEN

  • Pin It

We live in a day and age where not only can a person will things to actually happen, but; if there’s enough of a social media frenzy it’ll get done. In prep for his re match fight Saturday with DANIEL CORMIERJON JONES did a facebook live chat taking questions from fans. Now that’s always a fun bit to do, but it also is playing with fire. A fan asked Jon if he’d ever fight BROCK LESNAR. So the match has been lit so to speak. Ever the ultimate competitor Jon said he’d love to. Brock replied anytime anywhere I accept the challenge.

Here’s the issues; both have their hands full with other things right now. Brock is in “retirement” from MMA right now. Should he decide to come back; his USADA suspension kicks back in where he has another 6 months of time to do. Is he steroids or not one of the best heavyweights ever ? Yes. But there are those in the heavyweight division ready for him should he ever come back. Such as champ STIPE MIOCICALISTAIR OVEREEM, possibly even the likes of a DEREK LEWIS or FRANCIS NGANNOU. Jon on the other hand has to deal with “DC”, with GUSTAFSSONMANUWA, and  COREY ANDERSON in the wings.

Now would the UFC do this “superfight” ? Absolutely, with rankings and divisions be damned. Remember this is an ownership group still with lots of bills, and their cut of the CONOR-FLOYD fight will only pay back a small percentage. So they need money; and lots. Especially since the year is a tick half over and not a single PPV has been a major financial windfall. The money for both Jon and Brock would also be very hard to pass up. There is zero to one percent it would be at light heavyweight so that leaves it to be a catchweight or at heavyweight. Which renders the question; would arguably the GOAT at light heavyweight Jon; make the move up to heavyweight ? If he did, after a fight with Brock would certainly leave plenty of interesting match ups for him.
