• Working With WWE In The Future Is Inevitable, Says UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones (who has never been knocked out or submitted) was asked about the possibility of working with WWE in the future.

Below is what Jones said:

“I think it’s inevitable. I’ve always respected WWE, and I feel like the sports can be so similar.

I have the size and athleticism and the following to transition over really well. To get the opportunity to just show up, even as a special guest, would be a dream come true.”

For those who don’t know, Jones is the fighter who called out Brock Lesnar for a fight back in 2017.
