Manager Says Issues Between Jon Jones & UFC President Dana White Will get Resolved


Malki Kawa is the longtime agent to UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who just won the gold back by defeating Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.

Jones and UFC President Dana White aren’t on the best of terms right now, but Kawa believes things will get resolved as time goes on.

“All of that will get resolved in time,” Kawa said on The MMA Hour“I actually sat down with Dana after the fight and dealt with Demetrious Johnson. It’s slowly taking shape as well there and that (Jones) will be taken care of also.”

White himself admitted that he hasn’t spoken to Jones since the new light heavyweight champion failed a drug test right before UFC 200.

Kawa also says that he can hash out the issues between the two, much like he did with the UFC President and UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson.

“It will all be resolved. It’s not as bad as it seems. Obviously, he went through a lot, and we expected some stuff from Dana,” Kawa said. “Dana has his own ideas on some of this stuff. It’s just a matter of sitting in a room and hashing these things out. I did it with Dana and DJ on Saturday. I’ll do that with Jon and Dana and some point if they want to and we’ll see if we can get it resolved. It’s not the end of the world.”

It is unknown at this time when or if the light heavyweight champion will have a face to face with the UFC President.
