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.
For the past few months, Jon Jones has made it clear that he wants to return to the Octagon this year and even recently revealed that he plans on becoming a champion in 2022.
In the main event of UFC 270, Francis Ngannou defended his UFC Heavyweight Championship against Ciryl Gane. Ngannou employed a new strategy to his game as he used a lot of grappling in his five-round fight against Gane. The fight ended in a unanimous decision win for Ngannou via scores of 48-47, 48-47 49-46 in the pay-per-view headliner.
Jon Jones took to Twitter and in a series of tweets, reacted to his rival’s win over Cyril Gane. He also proceeded to rip Ngannou’s performance and made it clear he was not impressed whatsoever.
Dana White confirmed Jon Jones is nowhere near the UFC Heavyweight Title picture. We will have to wait and see who Jon Jones’ next opponent will be, should he return this year.
