Dana White adds ” I think Jon’s going to watch this fight, and he’ll decide. Maybe he doesn’t fight at heavyweight. Maybe he goes back and tries to regain the light heavyweight championship. I honestly don’t know the answer to that question. After everything plays out on Saturday – there’s just so much going into this fight – it’s all part of the drama, though. It’s what makes this weekend so fun.”
However, the UFC president is confident when he says he expects Jon Jones to watch the fight at home. His presence at the event would definitely spice the atmosphere up. The event is already hosts one of the most exciting fights between the two heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane owing to the history that they have. “It’d be great for Jon to be here, but I think Jon would probably be better off at home,” White further adds, “Jon should watch this one at home.”
