In a pretty big form of irony, Brock Lesnar officially tied CM Punk's record as WWE Champion on the day after Punk's 2nd loss in UFC.
Lesnar has now been in possession of the Universal championship for 435 days; although technically it is a different title to the one held by Punk, both are recognised by the company as their highest-level singles titles.
When speaking of possible opponents for the soon to be 41 year old Lesnar in UFC, TMZ brought up the name Francis Ngannou.
Lesnar, 40, remains under contract with World Wrestling Entertainment and is now the WWE Universal Champion, but White believes he's interested in a return to the promotion.
"Obviously, there's a lot of options".
The trouble is, Jones was fined $205,000 and had his MMA license suspended by the California State Athletic Commission after a failed doping test in 2017. News broke about Lesnar failing a drug test following his victory at UFC 200. "Jon Jones is very interested in Brock Lesnar and Brock Lesnar is very interested in Jon Jones".
Jones, the former UFC light heavyweight champion, has yet to learn of his full suspension after being popped for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, during a test following the UFC 214 weigh-ins last July. If White can figure out a way to book the fight while also respecting the suspensions due to the drug testing failures, he most certainly will do so. The first step would be Lesnar re-entering the USADA drug testing pool (and losing the Universal title).
