Jon Jones to Dana White: Publish Text Messages on Wilder Money Request

by Aleksandar Urdarevik on May 29, 2020

The UFC light heavyweight champion is adding more fuel to the back-and-forth he’s been having over the these past few days with UFC president Dana White.

After White said that Jones had requested “absurd” Deontay Wilder-type money to bump up to heavyweight in order to to face top contender Francis Ngannou, “Bones” fired back via Twitter, asking the UFC boss to release the texts where White claimed Jones’ team made the request.

Jones (26-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) went on to suggest that his total payment is closer to $5 million per fight, but a superfight with Ngannou (15-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) should be worth more. Rather than compare himself to Wilder, Jones said if he wants to compare sporting financials, he'd look towards his NFL athlete brothers Arthur and Chandler.

Jones has expressed willingness to move up to heavyweight so long as his pay by the UFC is also upped. Ngannou has also shown interest in fighting Jones and said it was the UFC that didn’t want to make the bout happen.
