Jon Jones Claims He is Being Offered $10 Million to Fight Francis Ngannou – “Would Be Way Too Low For a Fight of This Magnitude”

Jon Jones explains his situation with the UFC in a series of tweets and reveals some very intriguing information to fight fans around the world. The former light-heavyweight champion took to Twitter and revealed that he has been offered in the range of $8 million to $10 million to take on current heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. However, Jones believes that the amount is way too less for a fight of this magnitude.

Jones had earlier promised that he would keep fight fans posted about all the updates about his conversation with the company in an attempt to be completely transparent with his fans. In the past, Jones has found himself in a lot of trouble after White claimed that Jones was asking for an “absurd amount of money.” It was during this time that the term “Wilder money” did rounds on the internet.

Jones also revealed that he has been fighting for around $2 million per fight during the last decade. It’s hard not to support a fighter who only wants a good pay-day to justify the years of his life to a company that has benefitted a lot from their presence.

Jones is a prime example of someone who despite being with the company for more than a decade, has found himself in a situation where he feels that he is not getting what he so rightfully deserves.
