Jon Jones is considered one of the best fighters in the history of the UFC for many fans. For the past few months, Jones had made it his life’s mission to go after Francis Ngannou’s UFC Heavyweight Championship. Jones has also been on a mission to get paid.
Bones Jones had been working very hard to make it to the Heavyweight division in the UFC. The journey has certainly been a very difficult one for him. It was even said that he was iced for speaking up about fighter pay.
Jones had revealed in the past that he felt undervalued and simply wanted to be paid better. Unfortunately for Jones, it was previously stated that he will not be facing Ngannou anytime soon.
While speaking with Robbie Fox, UFC President Dana White talked about Jon Jones’ return to the MMA world next year. Dana White made it clear that Jones makes it hard for people to like him but he is still one of the all-time greats.
“I have no idea. But yeah, he would be a guy that you could throw right in there. I mean, many people believe he is the GOAT man, that he is the best. And realistically, when you look at him, he is undefeated. The guy is undefeated, never lost a fight. He does make it hard for people to like him. There’s people who love him and there’s people who hate him. But what you can’t deny, is the guy has never lost a fight.”
Dana White confirmed Jon Jones is nowhere near the UFC Heavyweight Title picture. For the past few months, Jon Jones has made it clear that he wants to return to the Octagon next year and even recently revealed that he plans on becoming a champion next year. We will have to wait and see who Jon Jones’ next opponent will be.
