Earlier this week Jon Jones manager Malki Kawa made waves when he told MMA insider FrontRowBrian that he could see a “super fight happening” between his client (Jones) and Brock Lesnar if both fighters were to prove victorious at next weekend’s UFC 200 event in Las Vegas.
Jones recently addressed the rumor on Twitter stating that Kawa was simply attempting to “stir up drama”:
No my manager said that, he's just trying to stir up drama. As if we don't have enough 😒 https://t.co/IP7Ylh72RR

Jon Jones will rematch bitter rival Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 200 for the UFC’s coveted light heavyweight title on July 9 in Las Vegas.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will make his octagon return minutes before Jones vs Cormier 2, when he takes on knockout artist Mark Hunt in the UFC 200 co-main event.
