Brock Lesnar on Jon Jones superfight:

London's Jimi Manuwa will not be contesting the light-heavyweight title at UFC 214 but there is nobody with a keener eye on Jones' rematch against Daniel Cormier, which has the belt on the line.

But it was "DC" who seemed to take more control when they fought one another at UFC 192. The sport of MMA is better with Jones in it, especially when he's facing up to his greatest challenger. "That's a big old boy".

"I'm going to tell you what I don't suck at, I mean, you saw it, you were crying on Cain Velasquez' shoulder", Jones said, referring to the aftermath of their first fight which Jones won. "I definitely feel like this is the right time and the right spot and I'm in the right weight class at 135, and if you're in the right weight class, you can go down 10 pounds or up 10 pounds and I'm definitely willing to do that".

Lesnar is now under contract with WWE through next year's WrestleMania after signing a three-year deal in 2015, and the company would have to give him approval to fight while under contract. "Right now he should be anxious about D.C. on Saturday night", said Lesnar, quoted Associated Press. The feeling with some people is that Lesnar wants to get the word out on his interest in fighting so that he could have leverage with WWE during contract renewal talks. The decision was revoked after Lesnar was banned by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for failing two drug tests. "I had a backstage tiff with him after his last fight in Buffalo, and it nearly went off because he tried to run his mouth". After a few seconds, Jones said something and they backed up and parted ways.

Lesnar, who announced his MMA retirement on February 14, would have to reenter the USADA testing program for his suspension to end.

When Lesnar was contacted by The Associated Press for a response Tuesday, the former heavyweight champion made his willingness clear.

"Brock Lesnar is quietly back in the USADA testing pool for UFC", wrote Meltzer. Making matters worse, the results of the screening surfaced just days before he was scheduled to meet Cormier in the main event of one of the biggest pay-per-views in promotional history, UFC 200.
