It's been reported that Lesnar will drop the title either before or at SummerSlam.
"Brock's WWE deal is up at the end of this summer I think and I know he wants to fight", White said.
Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White is looking ahead to another potential superfight that has more than a couple of stumbling blocks in its way. I'll end up figuring that out in the next month.
If the Jones vs. Lesnar fight is not possible, White seemed open to the idea of a Lesnar vs. Francis Ngannou fight.
"There are a lot of options". News broke about Lesnar failing a drug test following his victory at UFC 200.
It should be noted that Lesnar is still under contract with the WWE until August and has yet to enter into the USADA testing pool, which would force him to be tested for six months before fighting again. Jones was previously pulled from a rematch with Cormier after he failed a drug test in 2016 and received a one-year suspension after arbitration.
"Jon Jones is very interested in Brock Lesnar and Brock Lesnar is very interested in Jon Jones", White told TMZ Sports.
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. Both men are among the biggest stars in UFC history.
Still, White remains hopeful of the fight coming to fruition. If it happens, Lesnar could faces Jones, who'd be making his own comeback. To date, Lesnar has defended the Universal title 10 times.
