Following UFC President Dana White’s recent comments that Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract expires in August, and The Beast is interested in fighting again, speculation began once again surrounding the future of Lesnar in WWE.
White also teased a possible Brock Lesnar vs Jon Jones fight, claiming, “Jon Jones is very interested in Brock Lesnar, and Brock is very interested in Jon Jones.” White certainly seemed interested in seeing the Lesnar vs Jones matchup, calling the bout idea “a fun fight.”
Following White’s comments, Bovada released early betting odds on the possible UFC fight, and the lines currently have Jon Jones favored in the fight at -350. This would mean a bet of $350 would net the winner $100. Brock Lesnar is currently a +260 underdog, meaning a bet of $100 would net the winner $260.
As for Lesnar’s future in WWE, at last word, the feeling is that he is expected to lose the title at SummerSlam this year, he likely will not be re-signing with the company and might pursue other interests, namely UFC. As for Lesnar’s opponent at SummerSlam, that is currently rumored to be Roman Reigns, in another battle between The Beast and The Big Dog, however that has yet to be confirmed.
