Jon Jones Launches Astonishing Rant Against Dana White After Calling Him Out For 'Absurd' Money Demands

Jon Jones Launches Astonishing Rant Against Dana White After Calling Him Out For 'Absurd' Money Demands

Jon Jones has pulled no punches towards Dana White as he called out the UFC president for allegedly lying about his money demands for a Francis Ngannou mega-fight.

The 32-year-old UFC light heavyweight champ has continued to tease fans about his long-awaited climb to heavyweight.

And it seemed that move could have happened soon, especially with Jones feuding with Ngannou in a heated war of words on social media.

However, 'Bones' launched an extraordinary rant against White on Twitter after the UFC chief said he wanted an "absurd amount of money" for the fight.

Jones tweeted: "It's interesting to just sit here and watch your boss lie to the camera like this. We never discussed any increase in pay.

"Immediately the conversation was that I already made enough. I never made a number offer.

"If you're not going to change my contract for the heavyweight move, at least have the decency to be honest with the fans.

"I was over the situation, but I'm not gonna sit back and allow Dana to lie to the fans. I never asked for an absurd amount of money. That's b******t. Absolute b******t."

Jones took a break from Twitter after his initial outburst before suggesting he wasn't 'mad or beefing' with White.

But the UFC legend claims that he was "surprised [White] went that route" as he said that "don't add salt to the wound by telling the fans something that's not the truth."

Jones explained: "I'm not going to give up hope the way I'm taking this whole thing is [UFC] don't want to budget the Jon Jones heavyweight move up right now.

"They should've just said that, lying on me and saying I asked for too much it's just unfair. That was unnecessary.

"You already let me down a bit by shutting down this Francis Mega [sic] fight, don't add salt to the wound by telling the fans something that's not the truth.

"[If] you're wondering I'm not fighting with Ufc [sic]. I'm not mad at Dana or beefing. Just surprised he went that route. I said my piece, I'm over it."
