Jon Jones

Jon Jones twitter crusade has finally come to a rather shocking end. Jones and Dana White were exchanging words from the last couple of days, and the dispute over fighter pay had taken an ugly turn after Jones called Dana “a fu**ing liar.” Dana White retracted by saying that he had nothing to gain from lying.

While nobody knew how serious a matter this entire situation was boiling to, it seems like it’s over. However, it didn’t end in the way we would have hoped. Jon Jones relinquished the UFC lightheavyweight title, and bid farewell to UFC. Jones also mentioned that he had nothing to gain from fighting the next title contender in line – Jan Blachowicz, or with a rematch with Dominick Reyes.

Jon Jones remains undefeated inside the octagon, and is regarded as one of the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. Few days back, Dana White had himself stated that Jon Jones is the GOAT, to which Jones had replied how UFC should be willing to treat its champion with better pay. It all started when Jones pitched the idea of a super-fight against Francis Ngannou. However, it fell apart after UFC decided not to offer what Jon Jones was asking. The amount remains disputed as White mentioned that Jones was asking for the same amount that Deontay Wilder made in his rematch with Tyson Fury, while Jones mentioned he did not give an exact figure, and just asked for a hike.
