Former WWE champion Kurt Angle and former Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar have met many times throughout their careers.
While Lesnar, who is a free agent, seems interested in fighting former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones, one person who Angle says wants to fight Lesnar is former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort who is now signed to One Championship
Kurt Angle told WrestlingInc:
Brock’s told me that several times that’s who he wants. So if it happens, it happens, but I think that might be the only way to get Brock to fight. I think he just wants Jones, but I just talked to my buddy Vitor Belfort, just did a photo shoot with him a couple days ago. We’re both ambassadors for Smart Cups… But Vitor wants to fight Brock
Angle then went on to talk about how he believes that maybe the reason Brock hasn’t re-signed with the WWE is because he’s tired of professional wrestling:
I don’t know. I don’t know what transpired. Something had to have happened because I heard they pulled all this merchandise off the shelves. So it’s not just Brock not having a contract and not knowing where he wants to go. The company, obviously, they’re not going to let him go. Brock’s pretty level headed. He doesn’t get in any trouble. So there’s no reason to fire the kid. He’s a tremendous athlete, a tremendous employee. So I think Brock just got tired of doing it
Let’s be real here, No one wants to see a Brock Lesnar vs Vitor Belfort fight. Belfort is not a household name to todays MMA fans, he hasn’t fought in 3 years and had been knocked out in 3 of his last 5 fights. I’d be shocked if Lesnar does return to fight anyone but Miocic or Jones.
As far as the WWE goes, how many times has it been said Brock Lesnar was that on the outs with the company? Probably 2 people in the world will ever know the truth, Vince McMahon and Lesnar himself. Only time will tell where The Beast Incarnate decides to go.
