Jon Jones is not happy with Dana White, to say the least.
Recently, Jones claimed he may walk away from MMA after the UFC shut down the idea of him moving up to heavyweight to fight Francis Ngannou. “Bones” said he wanted to make some more money but the promotion is not interested in it. White has since doubled down on it and claimed Jones was asking for an absurd amount of money which he says is absolutely false.
“It’s interesting to just sit here and watch your boss lie to the camera like this,” Jones wrote on social media. “We never discussed any increase in pay. Immediately the conversation was that I already made enough. I never made a number offer.”
The light heavyweight champion then followed it up with three more tweets where he was angry about what has happened.
“If you’re not going to change my contract for the heavyweight move, at least have the decency to be honest with the fans,” he said.
“I was over the situation, but I’m not gonna sit back and allow Dana to lie to the fans. I never asked for an absurd amount of money,” Jones said. “That’s bulls**t.”
“Absolute bulls**t,” he wrote.
Jon Jones then took to social media a couple of hours later where he was still angry but says it is more frustration over the situation.
“I’m not going to give up hope the way I’m taking this whole thing is UFC don’t want to budget the Jon Jones heavyweight move up right now,” he said. “They should’ve just said that, lying on me and saying I asked for too much it’s just unfair. That was unnecessary.
“You already let me down a bit by shutting down this Francis Mega fight. Son’t add salt to the wound by telling the fans something that’s not the truth,” he added.
Jon Jones then concluded the Twitter rant making it clear he is not mad at the UFC. Instead, he is surprised by how they handled it but claims he is now over it.
“If you’re wondering I’m not fighting with UFC. I’m not mad at Dana or beefing. Just surprised he went that route. I said my piece, I’m over it,” he concluded.
