White has claimed that Jones wanted “Deontay Wilder” money to fight Ngannou, which is something that Jones has argued against.
Jones has now returned to Twitter for another rant and the fighter is now demanding to be released from the UFC:
The reporter asked Dana to show the text messages instead he gives a 55 second response talking about why would I lie ----— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
At no point did I ever demand anything from you Dana, I simply asked for a Super fight and asked to be compensated for it. You are the one who started talking negotiations publicly and showing the world how much you’ve been withholding from your athletes this whole time— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
Hunter and I had a very respectful conversation, I love how you’re trying to paint this picture of me being some angry guy disrespectfully demanding money. And then bringing up my out of the cage affairs to justify under paying me by tens of millions for years— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
You’re talking all that big guy stuff about not caring, put your money where your mouth is and release me from that contract— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
I’d probably make more in my first boxing match than my next three UFC fights combined. There’s real estate, acting, just kicking it and being a dad. No one needs to put up with Dana‘s lies https://t.co/YKYKhqfR47— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
There has been no response from White at this time towards the latest Twitter rant from the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.
