First Round Management announced the news on social media that the pair were no longer working together. This news came as a surprise to many as First round management and Jon Jones have been working together for over a decade. Jones has been with them since the beginning of his UFC career.

After an 11 year journey as @JonnyBones management team, First Round Management and Bones have amicably decided to part ways. We are proud of him and the work we’ve done. We wish him the best going forward,” First Round Management tweeted.

The move came after Jon Jones and the UFC were in the middle of the contract negotiations for a potential fight between UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones.

Recently the talks hit a roadblock after Dana White said that Derrick Lewis would be getting the chance to fight Francis Ngannou for the title after Dana White said that Jon Jones demanded $30 Million to fight him.

I never discussed wanting 30 million with you or Hunter @danawhite just wondering where you heard that number? Is someone speaking with you on my behalf or,” Jones tweeted.

Malki Kawa says Jon Jones and the management are parting in a good way

Malki Kawa took to Instagram and stated that the move wasn’t related to the recent negotiations over the Francis Ngannou fight.

Sometimes it’s best to just walk away. Glad to have repped the p4p best fighter in @jonnybones for the last 11years. No this had nothing to do with his Ngannou negotiations. Jon has been handling that negotiation on his own and has been as he wanted to speak for himself when it came to the last few fights, so no, sorry fans, you can’t blame me. We all agreed it was just best to start over. @abraham and I are working on a lot of major things at #frm and sometimes you just have to know when to say when,” Kawa wrote on Instagram.
