Tony Ferguson Wants to Train With Brock Lesnar for Potential Super Fight

Tony Ferguson has offered to join Brock Lesnar after the former light-heavyweight Champion Jon Jones called out the former Heavyweight Champion. Jon Jones recently vacated his light heavyweight title and announced his move to the heavyweight division. Earlier Jon Jones revealed that he felt his heavyweight goals would take him some time, and he didn’t want the other fighters in the division to fight for the interim gold. Jon Jones’ decision to jump weight class comes after he teased a potential super-fight against Francis Ngannou.

However, Jon Jones has also expressed his desire to fight for the heavyweight gold in his very first fight against Stipe Miocic. Jones claimed that it’s a fight that makes more sense for Stipe Miocic and that a fight against Francis Ngannou would be a risk.

Lesnar is a big name and a fight against Jon Jones is definite to bring in huge numbers. However, Lesnar announced his retirement from MMA and has shown no desire to come back to the octagon. Interestingly enough, Tony Ferguson was happy with the idea and expressed his interest to work alongside Brock Lesnar in the fight camp if the potential fight between the two capitalizes.
