While appearing in the WrestlingInc Daily Podcast, Angle said that he spoke to Brock Lesnar, and The Beast told him that he wants to face former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Jon Jones.
“Brock’s told me that several times, that’s who he wants...I think that might be the only way to get Brock to fight. I think he just wants Jones.” (H/T Cageside Seats)
Lesnar hasn't been inside an octagon for the last four years, with his last fight in the octagon taking place in 2016 against Mark Hunt. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion had confronted MMA legend Daniel Cormier in 2018, after he entered the cage at UFC 226 and laid out a challenge to DC.
Brock Lesnar re-entered the USADA testing pool in the hopes of fight with Cormier, but is was later revealed by UFC President Dana White that Lesnar had pulled out of the fight and that he was done fighting in UFC. A recent report indicated why Lesnar has stayed away from the MMA ring, with the report suggesting that Lesnar's wife Sable was not a fan of the sport.
Lesnar's last appearance in WWE was back in April 2020 when he faced off against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36, and lost his WWE Championship to the Scottisch Psychopath.Published 11 Sep 2020, 09:52 IST
