While it might be difficult to make it happen now, there is a strong interest to see Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar face off against one another inside the Octagon in the UFC.

Dana White has said as well that he's interested in making the fight happen since both fighters want to face one another as well. Both fighters though will have to serve their suspensions with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) before they can fight once more.

In the meantime though, there's nothing stopping the fighters from talking about the potential bout and breaking down different scenarios on social media. That's exactly what Jones has been doing with fans this week on Twitter.

When Jones was asked in a tweet by a fan how he ranks himself against Lesnar in terms of strength, he said: "I feel like he would have the upper hand in strength but I would have the upper hand in muscle endurance."

Another fan asked Bones what are the chances of The Beast scoring a takedown on him, to which he said: "Oh he would have an extremely high chance if I allowed him to get around my little legs. I try not to let people get in on deep shots let alone finish them. Gus got my ass good, we’ll timed."

Jones has only been taken down once in his career by Alexander Gustafsson. However, Lesnar will definitely be up for the challenge of becoming only the second person to do so because he is a wrestling specialist.

Jones vs Lesnar should be an interesting fight if it is ever to happen, as both fighters are former UFC champions. Bones is a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, while The Beast is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion.


However, as previously mentioned, both fighters will have to serve the remaining of their suspensions with the USADA before they are allowed to step foot back inside the Octagon.

Jones is looking to avoid a lengthy suspension from USADA, which could be up to four years, for his second violation. He tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid around UFC 214.

Lesnar, on the other, is still working for the WWE and is yet to enter the USADA six-month drug-testing pool for testing positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene around UFC 200.
