UFC fans have been very fascinated with former light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones' heavyweight debut for a long time.

Fans are expecting to witness the heavyweight showdown between Jon Jones and the current champion, Francis Ngannou, who is recovering from a knee injury.

However, Henry Cejudo does not believe that "The Predator" Francis Ngannou is going to fight Jon Jones in his next fight.

Henry Cejudo recently said that Francis Ngannou would have his boxing fight first, which can potentially earn him around $30 million.

"You are talking about a 30 million dollar payday in comparision to whatever he was getting paid in MMA. So I think he is gonna go that route fist and then after that maybe go up against Jon."- Cejudo said

Jon Jones is currently training with Henry Cejudo for his heavyweight return and is very likely to make his return in UFC 282.

Jones recently called out the former heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic and urged him to sign the contract for UFC 282.

However, UFC president, Dana White does not agree with that statement as he recently indicated that Jones would return in early 2023.
