BROCK LESNAR is desperate for one last UFC fight against Jon Jones, according to WWE legend Kurt Angle.
“The Beast” was widely-believed to have retired from the octagon after avoiding the calls from Daniel Cormier to extend his contract with Vince McMahon’s wrestling company.
Brock Lesnar VS Mark Hunt
Lesnar, 42, is the only man ever to have held both the UFC heavyweight title and the WWE Championship – plus the Universal Title – and remains a huge draw for both MMA and grappling fans.
He looked to be on the brink of a showdown with Cormier after confronting him last year at UFC 226 until Dana White confirmed he had retired.
But just when you thought talk of Lesnar (5-3) battling in the cage again was over, WWE Hall of Famer Angle has stoked the flames once again.
And he insisted that a one-on-one clash with “Bones” is the only thing that would entice Lesnar into the octagon.

Lesnar’s last MMA fight was against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in October 200.
He won via unanimous decision, but the result was later overturned to a no contest as Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance clomiphene.
“The Beast” – who lost the WWE Universal Title to Seth Rollins at SummerSlam on August 11 – won the UFC heavyweight crown in 2008 as he defeated Randy Couture with a second round TKO.
