Dana White Responds To Being Called 'A F**king Liar' By Jon Jones
White claimed that Jones was asking for "what Deontay Wilder was paid" to move up a weight to face heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou in his next fight.
Jones was incensed by White's comments and embarked on an astonishing Twitter rant in which he completely denied he was demanding such a hefty fee.
In a series of tweets, he repeatedly accused the UFC president of lying, said that the NFL treat their athletes better than the UFC and even called for his release due to his unhappiness with the situation.
Don't be a fucking liar, my reputation has already taking enough hits. I don't need this bullshit Dana. I never asked for Diante Wilder's numbers. And how about since Diante is making 30 million, we settle for half of that. Since you said I'm the goat and everything.

White, however, hit back at his fighter - stating that he has text messages to support his claims and would be willing to take a lie detector.

Speaking to media before tonight's UFC Fight Night event, White said: "Yeah it's fun working out in the gym in the morning seeing tweets from Jon Jones saying I'm lying.
"We have text messages from Jon Jones. It's not like I can't prove what I'm saying is true. We have text messages.
"I'm not gonna put his text messages out in the press. I could. If Jon Jones wants to sit down take a lie detector test about who's lying and who's not. We can do that too. So you know I don't want to go there with this guy. The guy's made a lot of money."
Despite the outburst from Jones, White still feels as though there has never been a better fighter inside the Octagon than 'Bones' and deems him to be the undisputed 'GOAT' of MMA.
He added, via Essentially Sports: "If you look at Jon Jones track record, show me somebody that has the track record this guy has and has made the money Jon Jones has made. Doesn't happen.
"And it's not like I'm out here on some smash Jon Jones crusade. I'm actually the one saying there is no debate. No argument. He is the GOAT. No matter what you think of his last 2 fights. The three people that matter say he won the fight."
