Sports Illustrated has released a report suggesting that UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar will return to the Octagon and fight UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.
On the sites professional wrestling section, Sports Illustrated suggests that Lesnar’s current storyline in the WWE is leading to Lesnar taking a break from the wrestling promotion in order to fight Jones.
On Monday, during an episode of Monday Night RAW, Lesnar announced if he loses his WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam, he would then leave the WWE.
Lesnar’s current WWE contract doesn’t expire until April, after WrestleMania, but this current storyline could be an excuse for Lesnar to be off WWE television for quite awhile. This would allow Lesnar to compete in the UFC.
Recently, both Lesnar and Jones have shown interest in fighting each other. On Saturday, Jones regained his UFC light heavyweight title by knocking out Daniel Cormier. After his fight, Jones got on the microphone and challenged Lesnar to a fight inside the Octagon.
