Jon Jones is upset with Dana White for alleging lying about how much money he wants.
Jon Jones has been through a lot when it comes to the UFC over the past few yearsJon Jones has been through a lot when it comes to the UFC over the past few years although most of it has to do with his reputation in terms of drug use. Jones has been caught red-handed numerous times and while many consider him to be the GOAT, others find his constant antics offputting, to say the least.
Now, Jones has found himself embedded in a feud with Dana White over money. According to Dana White, Jones wants $30 million to fight Francis Ngannou, which is why the fight won't actually end up happening. As White said, Jones wants Deontay Wilder money. Well, Jones didn't like White's comments and immediately lashed out on social media where he accused the UFC president of being a liar and told White to release him from his contract.
"I don’t even make half of half of what Diante Wilder makes," Jones said. "If my reputation causes you to undervalue me this much. Just go ahead and release me from my UFC contract altogether. I’m sure some promoter somewhere will be more than happy to pick me up."
Disputes between big-name fighters and Dana White aren't particularly new so we're sure he's more than ready to handle Jones' demands. At the end of the day, this makes for some great promotion.
