Francis Ngannou sends tweet to new UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones, its gone viral

Francis Ngannou has ruthlessly mocked Jon Jones on social media following his championship victory over Ciryl Gane at UFC 285.

Jones made a triumphant return to the UFC by defeating Gane last night to capture the UFC heavyweight title.

In his first Octagon appearance since February 2020, 'Bones' easily beat the Frenchman, submitting him in the very first round.

He pulled off a guillotine choke just two minutes and four seconds into the Las Vegas bout.


Jones joins an exclusive club of winning titles in two different weight divisions, having dominated the UFC light-heavyweight division.

But Ngannou, who left the MMA promotion as UFC heavyweight champion, still considers himself as the 'king' of the division.

He wasted no time in reacting to his rival's win as he sent him a message on Twitter, which has gone viral.

"Good job Jonny Boy. Sincerely, The heavyweight king," he tweeted.


Jones swiftly replied to Ngannou. Speaking in his post-fight press conference, he said: "Francis is a big old p*ssy. All that muscle with a big-ass p*ssy."

Ngannou beat Gane in his final UFC appearance before leaving the company as a free agent.

He's been linked with a monstrous showdown against Tyson Fury while Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua have also been mooted as potential opponents.


But a route back into the UFC appears to be off the cards, with UFC president Dana White insisting he'll 'never' be in the promotion again.

"We negotiated with him for years," he said when asked if the UFC would ever try to re-sign Ngannou. "It’s over. That’s over. He’ll never be in the UFC again."


With Ngannou out of the picture, Jones is set to defend his UFC heavyweight crown against former title holder Stipe Miocic.


And he's fired a warning to him following his UFC 285 victory.

"I say it respectfully to Stipe: I would take time off from being a firefighter right now," he said during his post-fight press conference. "I mean that with all due respect. My whole world is going to be focused on him. This is the biggest opportunity in my life, to be the heavyweight GOAT, and I’m going to give it everything I’ve got - absolutely everything I’ve got.

"Stipe is talking about how he’s heavier than me right now. His head is already in the wrong spot if he thinks weightlifting is going to beat me.

!He’ll never be younger than he is right now. He’ll never be faster. I’m going to not only beat Stipe Miocic, I’m going to finish Stipe Miocic before the championship rounds."
