Jim Ross: ‘Jon Jones Is Interested In WWE Payday’


WWE Hall of Fame broadcaster Jim Ross took to his blog on Monday to talk about the hype surrounding a potential Brock Lesnar/Jon Jones mega-fight.

During an entry of his blog, Ross stated that “word on the street” suggests Jones has interest in a “WWE payday” should one present itself.

Jones and Lesnar have gone back and forth after Jones called out Lesnar prior to his knockout of Daniel Cormier for the UFC Light Heavyweight title at UFC 214 this past weekend.

“Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40 pounds less than you, meet me in the Octagon” Jones said according to Greg Beacham of the Associated Press.

Lesnar responded by saying; “Be careful what you wish for, young man.”

It’s likely that if Jones and Lesnar, who is under a suspension, can’t line up a fight in the octagon that WWE would more the willing to oblige.
