Jon Jones Calls Out Brock Lesnar At UFC 214, Brock Lesnar Responds

Victorious UFC star Jon Jones has humbly celebrated his victory over rival Daniel Cormier, kissing the defeated fighter on the head after his third round knockout win.

With his win over Cormier, Jones essentially ended one great rivalry but he has nicely and somewhat fortuitously transitioned into another feud, one that is not quite as personal but has the potential to be even more lucrative. His title belt has been stripped twice, and he endured a yearlong suspension for a doping test failure before returning to beat Cormier for the second time.

"I would love to fight Brock Lesnar", Jones said during a Facebook Q&A.

When asked if he was thinking of her during a post fight press conference, the newly crowned light heavyweight champion didn't say much but what he did say was lovely.

Finally, Jones timed a perfectly placed left head kick that wobbled Cormier and forced him to stumble around the Octagon. The 38-year even taunted Jones whenever he missed shots. Last time he fought he was granted a testing exemption, which resulted in two failed drug tests, a suspension and a civil lawsuit filed by his opponent. Whether it was upper-cuts of Cormier in a Thai Clinch, or Jones' kicks to Cormier's body, the impact was evident as both were more focused and looked sharper. "He has no reason to be ashamed". I've been a dumb ass and I've done a lot of things to make myself a laughing stock.

Jones also called out former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar for what would nearly certainly be the highest-profile fight in MMA history.

That was in Anaheim, Calif.

UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (18-3-1) of Ferguson, Mo., implemented a smart game plan against world-class grappler Damian Maia of Brazil (28-7). The world number three was knocked out in just 42 seconds by surging Swiss contender Volkan Oezdemir in the opening bout of the main card.

What would you like to see come next for former UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier? He cried in the cage afterward. Woodley won the fight by a unanimous decision. And that's good news for WME-IMG, who is looking for a big money fight as Conor McGregor continues to be away from the sport in preparation for his August 26th boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

Afterward, White said Georges St. Pierre will fight middleweight champion Michael Bisping next instead of Woodley.

- White: GSP is fighting Michael Bisping. Cris Cyborg earned the belt via the third-round stoppage with knees.

"I'm really happy to be champion", Justino said. "I didn't throw many high kicks, but I surprised him with that one and it did the job". The round came to a close with Cormier landing a punch over the top. In the fifth round, the crowd did the wave, then thousands of fans lit up the lights on their phone and started waving them.
