After Jon “Bones” Jones was victorious in his fight against Daniel Cormier, in his post interview, he called out WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar to a fight in the octagon. But how likely is that match to happen? The answer is very!
It has been rumored that he is leaving the company following a potential championship loss to go back to the UFC. Lesnar got suspended almost a year ago after failing a drug test following his UFC 200 fight. Talks of him returning early have been brewing as he’s been meeting with reps during Fight Week.
To make it seem more concrete, Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman said that if he loses the championship in a fatal four way at Summerslam, that he and his client are leaving the company. If it’s coming from Heyman, you know it’s a planned move for the two.
That is not the only WWE/UFC crossover. Ronda Rousey was photographed last month with Paul “Triple H” Levesque at the WWE center around the Mae Young Classic, similar to the Cruiserweight Classic, but showcasing female wrestlers. After two consecutive losses in the octagon, she may be switching brands to keep her reputation as the toughest female in the business.
She’s no stranger to being in the squared circle, she was a special guest at Wrestlemania 31 who shocked the crowd by twisting Stephanie Mcmahon's arm and judo flipping Triple H. Since then fans have been wondering if she would cross over, and as of late the pictures are becoming more solid proof.
Two of the biggest stars from both brands will make headlines as the two swap places in these two brands, and fans are still wondering if Phillip “CM Punk” Brooks will ever wrestle again. There have been independent companies offering him money to do a match, but his return, according to him, might not happen anytime soon.
