Jon Jones Says He'll 'Deal With' Brock Lesnar After Cormier at UFC 214 Presser

Former UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones has his eyes set on reclaiming the championship he never lost when he meets Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.

But it appears that "Bones" has his future goals in mind as well.

Earlier in the week during a Facebook Live video Jones mentioned that he'd love to fight Lesnar. It didn't take long for Lesnar to respond telling Greg Beacham of The Associated Press he'd fight Jones "Anytime, anywhere."

Jones kept the chatter going at the UFC 214 pre-fight press conference.

If Jones is able to defeat Cormier for a second time there would be no bigger fight for Jones, or the UFC, than a superfight against Lesnar. It's one of the top marquee bouts the UFC could put on under its banner.

If Lesnar returned, the former UFC heavyweight champion would need to serve the remainder of his suspension, per UFC vice-president of athlete health and performance Jeff Novitzky (h/t Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting)

But first things first—UFC 214 on Saturday against Cormier.
