BREAKING NEWS! UFC champ Jon Jones will headline WWE WrestleMania 31

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Not really.

But I guess Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones couldn't resist taking a shot at the promotion's decision to give former WWE superstar CM Punk a chance to compete in mixed martial arts (MMA) on the grandest stage of them all (more on that here).

"Bones" breaks news on Twitter.

Now that I think about it, I would be down for an Alexander Gustafsson rematch in the steel cage.

Punk -- real name Phil Brooks -- has no fight experience and still hasn't decided on what weight class to compete in. While not everyone is enamored with his addition to the UFC roster, Brooks has received a fair share of support from past and present champs.

Hear him explain those encounters, along with the "nervous energy" from his UFC 181 reveal, in his backstage interview right here.
