WWE wrestler and actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was sat cage side last Saturday, for Jon Jones victory over bitter rival Daniel Cormier, at UFC 214. Needless to say the superstar liked what he saw.
Just moments after Jones claimed a vicious third-round KO over Cormier- to take back the UFC light heavyweight title that he never lost- he met ‘The Rock’ backstage.
The coincidental meeting came just moments after Jones called out another WWE Wrester, in former UFC Heavyweight champion, Brook Lesnar. With rumours circling of a mega fight between the pair going down in 2018
So what was said in the brief meeting? Watch the full video below on Instagram.

We all go thru it. Then raise the People's eyebrow. When life gets tough, you get knocked down and you're going "thru the sludge".. you gotta have faith that if you just keep pushing thru it, on the other side is something greater. Proud of and inspired by my guy @jonnybones for keeping the faith, pushing thru the sludge, rising up again to be a greater man and becoming new @UFC Light Heavyweight Champion of the world. When we hugged after the fights he put his UFC title on my shoulder.. a beautiful gesture that I appreciate, but I respectfully gave it back because he's earned it… and the thought of me getting punched in the face in the octagon makes me want to just go eat waffles. Congratulations champ to you, your family and Team Jones. #ItsNeverOver ????
