Jon Jones is no stranger to verbally burying his opponents and Francis Ngannou received quite a battering on Twitter.
Ngannou said that Jon Jones is a “decision fighter” and has “barely won a fight lately. This caused Jon Jones to fire back with a couple of tweets where he called him out for being a “one trick pony.”
Jones then backed off a little bit because he respects Ngannou. He doesn’t feel the need to crush him verbally to do what he’s been doing since 2011.
A decision fighter? I carried the record for most submissions in the light heavyweight division for many years my friend. You are what we call a one trick pony @francis_ngannou every champion I’ve ever faced punched hard. I see right through you
Honestly @francis_ngannou I really respect you and your story. I really don’t feel the need to have to crush you in a verbal battle to do what I’ve done to everyone since 2011
We’ll have to see if all this additional trash talk drives up his asking price, because Jon Jones has made UFC a ton of money by talking people into the building for years.
