Brock Lesnar is ready to accept Jon Jones' invitation for a fight that would potentially rank as one of the biggest in UFC history.

"Would I fight Jon Jones? Anytime, anywhere," Lesnar said, per Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. "Right now he should be worried about D.C. on Saturday night."

Jones is set to face Daniel Cormier Saturday as the main event for UFC 214.

While promoting the upcoming bout on Facebook Live, Jones responded to a question about possibly facing Lesnar in the future at about the 5:50 mark.

"I would love to fight Brock Lesnar," Jones said. "He's a massive dude. I mean, it would be a massive draw. Really big for the sport. It'd be a great challenge. That's a big ol' boy. I doubt Brock Lesnar would take that fight, though."

Lesnar would apparently be on board for a potential fight, even though UFC would have to figure out how to solve the weight difference of at least 50 pounds.

Of course, the former heavyweight champion has only competed in one MMA match since 2011, and that resulted in a no-contest due to a positive drug test. The 40-year-old has otherwise spent his time competing in WWE.

Still, he remains a popular figure in the UFC world and could create an intriguing battle against Jones, who has proved himself as one of the best in the history of the sport.
