Jon Jones bids adieu to UFC gold: 'Veni vedi veci' - Jon Jones

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones took to Twitter and stated that he will be vacating his title and proposed a championship fight between Jan Blachowicz and Dominick Reyes.

The feud between Jon Jones and UFC president Dana White has escalated to the point where the champion even plans to sit out the year and wait for better offers in 2021.

White said that Jon Jones had insane demands to fight top light heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou. According to White, Jones was asking a payday similar to what the former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder made for fighting Tyson Fury last February.

Jones accused Dana White of lying and told the UFC to release him from his contract.

#ESPN Reyes vs Jan For the UFC light heavyweight championship of the world. As of right now, I got nothing to really gain fighting either of them. Let me know if you guys want to set up a day in 2021 for that Izzy fight. Hopefully you guys will be willing to pay by then.” Jones tweeted.

In his next tweet, Jones confirmed that he will be dropping his light heavyweight title.

Jon Jones also flirted with the idea of moving to boxing where the pay is much better. Jones said that he would be making more money than his next three UFC fights combined.

I’d probably make more in my first boxing match than my next three UFC fights combined. There’s real estate, acting, just kicking it and being a dad. No one needs to put up with Dana‘s lies,” Jones tweeted.
Dana White claims Jon Jones issued UFC an ultimatum

During the UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs Burns post-fight interview, White responded to Jones’ allegations.

Being the greatest of all-time does not mean you get $30 million dollars,” White explained. “Being able to sell… Jon Jones has done a lot of things to himself. He keeps saying, in one of his tweets he was saying that I tarnished him. I tarnished you? You’ve done a very good job of tarnishing you. I haven’t done that.”

You know, Hunter told him ‘you can come in here and walk through the numbers, I’ll walk you through all of the numbers’ and (Jones) said ‘I don’t give a f*ck what the numbers are. I want what I want and that is it.’ It is not how life works. Why don’t you guys fly back and go tell your boss ‘I don’t give a f*ck what this company makes, this is what I want and you’re going to give it to me’, see how that f*cking works out!” White said.
