Former WWE champion Kurt Angle and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar have met many times throughout their careers.

Angle and Lesnar are particularly close and the Olympic gold medalist believes Lesnar has his sights set on Jon Jones.

"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 photoshoot with him a couple days ago. We're both ambassadors for Smart Cups... But Vitor wants to fight Brock,” Angle said on Wrestling Inc. Daily.

Angle also believes that the reason that Lesnar, who is a free agent, hasn’t re-signed with the WWE is that he may be 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,” says Angle.
