The reason for his mindset is due to him knowing that Lesnar has always wanted to fight UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.
“I hope he does return. I know he said he has retired. I think the one fight he wants, not sure if it’s ever going to happen, he wants to fight against Jones. They are very different, their sizes are extremely different. Brock is a freak. He might not win all his fight, he might not be the most polished fighter. He is an incredible athlete, and he could do anything he wants.”
Lesnar retired from MMA earlier this year after the UFC was trying to book him in a fight against Daniel Cormier.
Jones saw the comments made by Angle and decided to take to his official Twitter account to comment. He wrote the following:
Brock is way too slow, I’ll embarrass him. https://t.co/rbg2Lfgpnw
