UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou stated he’d love to fight two more this season, and while he isn’t certain what’s happening between the UFC and Jon Joneshe stated he desires Jones first and a rematch with Derrick Lewis.
However, Jones as well as the UFC have participated in a bitter contract discussion over interpersonal networking. At one stage, Jones asked for his release in the UFC, but he afterwards deleted the tweet.
“I really don’t understand what happened between Jon Jones along with the UFC, but I believe there is something wrong, and I think he tackled it a little in the incorrect manner,” Ngannou stated on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, which aired Wednesday. “Listen, that is not my company.
“There is a great deal of contenders prepared to battle. For the very first time, I am the guy who is making the telephone. I do not need to sit and await people. They are awaiting me, and I am ready. I am able to opt to fight, and I wish to fight possibly two [more] occasions this season. I expect that [Jones] fight occurs.”
Ngannou said August and December as chances because of his next two conflicts.
Even though UFC president Dana White indicated throughout his postfight news conference Saturday night that Jones could be scared to battle Ngannou, Ngannou seen the situation differently.
“I believe he would like to do a little bit of struggle, but I believe he is at some stage in his career in which he needs his huge cash,” Ngannou explained. “makes sense, you can not argue with this. He is the best pound-for-pound man for such a long time, which means that you can not deny anything in this game to Jon Jones.”
If Jones and the UFC can not come to monetary conditions, Ngannou’s initial defense is predicted to be against Lewis. Both first fought July 7, 2018, and it is considered among the worst heavyweight primary events in UFC history.
“I believe we will have this battle that never actually occurred,” Ngannou explained. “I am going to need to provide the fans exactly what they deserve.”
As far as he believes he will fight , Ngannou explained,”I can not really tell. You will never know what is happening with the UFC till it occurs. Just let it occur randomly. Whatever happens, I am down for.”
“I wish to get paid if that is the question. “I need good terms for this struggle, in my favor, at least having more advantage.
“But listen, I am under contract, so I must fight. I believe that the best is yet to come”
