It may be time to call UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones a former champion after Jones’ latest rant on Twitter.
#ESPN Reyes vs Jan For the UFC light heavyweight championship of the world. As of right now, I got nothing to really gain fighting either of them. Let me know if you guys want to set up a day in 2021 for that Izzy fight. Hopefully you guys will be willing to pay by then.— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
Bones out, when you see me in the streets just call me JJ ----— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
To the light heavyweight title Veni, vidi, vici— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
I hurt myself every time I walk out there and take a punch to the head and Not feel my pay is worth it anymore. https://t.co/X3BjGA9d02— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) May 31, 2020
The latest issues between Jones and the UFC arose earlier this week when UFC President Dana White suggested that Jones wanted “Deontay Wilder” money for a potential bout against Francis Ngannou. Jones has refuted that assertion by White, which has led to several back and forths between Jones and White through both social media and various interviews.
There has been no response from the UFC or White as to what Jones has now said through Twitter or for the status of the UFC Light Heavyweight Title.
