UFC president Dana White has said that a match-up between Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou would end exactly like it did at UFC 285 where Jon Jones defeated Ciryl Gane in Round 1 via submission.

Jon Jones vs Francis Ngannou according to Dana White

UFC president has consistently declined the possibility of Francis Ngannou ever fighting in the UFC.

I’m not interested (in that fight),” White said. “I tried making that fight for two years. He didn’t want the fight. Do you know what I mean? He didn’t want the fight. He left here without even having another deal in place. And I know how the boxing world is. It’s crazy. But Francis didn’t want to do it.

I tried to make that fight for two years, and let me tell you what. I think a lot of other people feel this way. I think that’s exactly the way the fight would’ve gone if (Ngannou) was in there, too. Him and Ciryl had a five-round war (at UFC 270 in January 2022). If Ciryl doesn’t go for that submission, Ciryl probably wins that fight at the end of the fifth round there.” (H/T – MMAJunkie.com)

Jones, 35, won the vacant heavyweight title on March 4 by submitting Gane with a guillotine choke in 2:04 after a three-year absence. Following the bout, Ngannou gave Jones a sneaky praise, to which Jones responded by calling Ngannou “a big old p*ssy.”
