Jon Jones Curses Out UFC President Dana White and Blasts Him in NSFW Tweets

Jon Jones unleashed an impassioned rant directed towards UFC president Dana White on Friday.
Jon Jones unleashed an impassioned rant directed towards UFC president Dana White on Friday.

It would appear that Jon Jones' potential ascension to the heavyweight division to fight contender Francis Ngannou has hit another snag.

UFC president Dana White claimed that Jones, the current light heavyweight champion, asked for $30 million to move up to the heavyweight division and face Ngannou, which is a similar figure to that pocketed by boxer Deontay Wilder for his second bout against Tyson Fury.

Jones responded by unleashing a string of tweets directed at White.

This was only the beginning of Jones' harangue. The cussing and name-calling started with his next post, where Jones made it clear just how angry he was.

Then, however, things took a turn for the worse when Jones called for White to release him from his UFC contract while also asserting that another promoter would sign him in short order.

It's really hard to dispute Jones' rage if White did, in fact, make false accusations about the money he asked for to square up against Ngannou. The UFC superstar finished his rant by claiming that not only did he not request $30 million, but he didn't even throw out a number.

A Jones-Ngannou showdown would be a dream fixture for MMA junkies, but it's unfortunately looking like a pipe dream at this point in time.
