Brock Lesnar has been challenged by Jon Jones and a UFC welterweight ahead of his rumored return in UFC.

Rumors have been claiming that the former UFC heavyweight champ would make a UFC return since his last fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200. However, UFC president Dana White has already addressed the issue and stated that Lesnar isn’t coming back to UFC at all.

But just recently, WWE legend Kurt Angle may have reopened the doors for a Lesnar comeback in combat sports. In an exclusive interview with ESPN, Angle said that he is fully aware that Lesnar is retired, but there’s one fight that could make him come out of retirement.

According to Angle, even though the WWE superstar is currently retired, Lesnar still wants to fight UFC light heavyweight champ Jones. “I know he said that he’s retired. The one fight he wants, and I don’t know if it’s ever going to happen, but he wants to go up against Jon Jones,” Angle said.

Jones, on the other hand, responded to Angle’s claim by taking his thoughts about the potential fight to social media. In his post, Jones stated that Lesnar is “way too slow,” and if they ever meet each other inside the octagon, he’ll “embarrass him.”

“Brock is way too slow, I’ll embarrass him,” Jones wrote.

Talks about the potential Lesnar vs. Jones superfight started when Jones called out Lesnar during one of his post-fight interviews. Although some believed that it was just a UFC stunt to generate publicity, the idea went on to be a hot topic in the MMA world.

Surprisingly, Lesnar’s WWE manager Paul Heyman also started a whole new different story in the possible Lesnar return. Heyman recently followed UFC welterweight star Jorge Masvidal on social media and what Masvidal did after thrilled his followers.

After learning that Heyman followed him, Masvidal wildly challenged Lesnar to a fight him. However, Masvidal’s challenge appeared to be more of a WWE match than real UFC fight.

Heyman, for his part, acknowledged Masvidal and hinted at a possible fruition of Masvidal vs. Lesnar match. “Thanks for reaching out. Great admirer of your fighting, equally as big an admirer of your ability to sell your fights via your personality and ability to translate that personality through your speaking and general demeanor,” Heyman wrote.

But as much as he “admired” Masvidal’s way of selling his fights, Heyman seemed more interested in seeing Masvidal fight UFC star Nate Diaz.
