Francis Ngannou fires back at Jon Jones, calls him a ‘decision fighter’; Jones responds

Francis Ngannou isn’t going to dodge any verbal attacks from Jon Jones.

The UFC heavyweight champion responded to the former UFC light heavyweight champion’s recent barbs on Twitter on Saturday morning.

You’re a decision fighter @JonnyBones and you’ve barely won a fight lately.
But you’re going to break me out

— Francis Ngannou (@francis_ngannou) May 1, 2021

UFC president Dana White said at UFC 261 that Derrick Lewis would be the next opponent for Ngannou after failing to reach a deal with Jones. But after Jones recently parted ways with his management team, it seems the former champion is trying to create a stir to get the fight he wants.

As far as Ngannou’s claims Jones is a decision fighter, Jones’ last three fights have gone to a decision and his last knockout was against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 on Dec. 29, 2018.

Jones, who took time off to gain weight for his move to heavyweight, hasn’t fought in over a year with his last outing a unanimous decision win against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 on Feb. 8, 2020.

Update: Jones isn’t happy being called a “decision fighter.”

A decision fighter? I carried the record for most submissions in the light heavyweight division for many years my friend. You are what we call a one trick pony @francis_ngannou every champion I’ve ever faced punched hard. I see right through you

I would rather be a decision fighter than a last for two rounds fighter ‍♂️

Honestly @francis_ngannou I really respect you and your story. I really don’t feel the need to have to crush you in a verbal battle to do what I’ve done to everyone since 2011

— BONY (@JonnyBones) May 1, 2021

You got fighters who have flat out got their ass kicked, been dominated. Mentioning the fact that I’ve had close fights ‍♂️

Im just telling you now @francis_ngannou if you want to start this Internet talk, be sure to keep up. Most people that talk shit with me go quiet after a while.. Everyone’s going to be the first to smash Jon Jones, very popular theme
