Jon Jones is one of the most popular fighters in the history of the UFC. 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. It seems he made fun of Hager Jake recently.
Jones also previously stated that he wants to be a champion in 2022. The former UFC light heavyweight champion recently announced that he’ll be making a return to fighting and it is likely taking place at an event of Fury Grappling.
Jones previously called out all the ‘big boys’ of the Heavyweight division as he is certainly looking for a fight. It was previously unlikely to be with AEW star Jake Hager in the end.
It was also recently revealed that a match between the two is still in the works as well. Despite this, Jon Jones took to Twitter and claimed that Jake Hager turned down the opportunity of a lifetime.
“You can’t gloat about turning down a grappling match with the goat. You had the opportunity of a lifetime, now you’re doing interviews about what you would’ve done”
Jake Hager also previously stated that Jon Jones has gone quiet regarding a potential fight between the two. Jon Jones has had a tumultuous 2021, to say the least, especially with his recent domestic violence arrest. It remains to be seen if Jones will face Hager next year or not.
