After Jon Jones took out Daniel Cormier UFC 214 last night, the 205 champ called out Brock Lesnar once again, and it didn't take long to get a response from the WWE star.

Lesnar has been retired from UFC action since a year ago, but he and Jones have been adding fuel to the potential they could fight.

It was a tactical and high-paced battle from the outset. A hard left landed for Jones. He connected with several powerful blows, but "Bones" took them all in stride and maintained his composure, sticking to his game plan of a diverse striking attack. The second contest ended in favor of Jones who claimed the third-round knockout victory with head kick and punches. Cormier fought smartly but did not stop Jones from taking the honours 10-9.

"I haven't talked to Brock but apparently Brock did say he wanted to fight Jon Jones and Jon Jones has just said he wants to fight Brock Lesnar so we'll see what happens", White told Fox Sports. "Daniel Cormier, guys, he has absolutely no reason to hang his head".

"I aspire to be a lot more like that man because he is an wonderful human being". Because he is an fantastic human being. "He is a true champion for the rest of his life". For one, Jones himself has said he's some 40 pounds lighter than Lesnar, and so he would obviously need to bulk up to get to the heavyweight division.

Current US economic expansion cycle is the slowest on record
The S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite opened slightly lower Friday, after reaching fresh highs earlier in the week. However, most economists wouldn't attribute the growth to the president's policies, since not much has been implemented yet.

The co-main event was a welterweight title fight between the reigning champion Tyron Woodley and the challenger Demian Maia.

Jones' victory thrilled a crowd that was deflated after Woodley defended his welterweight belt with a strong technical performance against the 39-year-old Maia, a vaunted jiu-jitsu specialist from Brazil.

"I'm glad that she got to watch the fight tonight, front row". "Obviously my manager was like, 'It's going to be a big payday.' But my team at Jackson-Wink said, "Jon you can win that fight".

"So we made up in our mind that we were serious about it and it would be great for the MMA world". Then, Cris Cyborg stopped Tonya Evinger by third-round TKO to capture the vacant UFC women's featherweight title. The pressure and aggression of the Brazilian was simply too much to handle, though.

Afterward, White said Georges St. Pierre will fight middleweight champion Michael Bisping next instead of Woodley. However, Cormier found his form late in the first round, stunning Jones with strikes in the clinch.
