Jon Jones continued to make public threats that he is willing to leave the UFC on Sunday, dropping a number of tweets saying that he will vacate his light heavyweight title amid a pay dispute with the promotion.
It all began when the fighter announced that he was leaving the UFC over failed negotiations regarding a fight with Francis Ngannou.
Jones then got into a public back and forth with UFC president Dana White. White proposed Jones could take a lie detector test, while Jones called for White to release the text messages of the negotiations. Jones even told White to release him from his UFC contract if he was undervalued in White’s eyes.
Now the player is threatening to walk away from the heavyweight title entirely. Jon Jones tweeted, ” 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.”
