Jon Jones Slams "F**king Liar" Dana White And Asks For UFC Release In Stunning Outburst

Jon Jones Slams "F**king Liar" Dana White And Asks For UFC Release In Stunning Outburst

Jon Jones has branded Dana White a "f**king liar" in response to his accusation about the UFC star's financial demands for a super-fight against Francis Ngannou.

The UFC president claimed Jones wanted "what Deontay Wilder was paid" to move up in weight to face heavyweight contender Ngannou.

But the UFC light-heavyweight champion has vehemently denied the money allegations as he took to social media to call out White's lies and ask for his UFC release.

The 32-year-old posted a series of tweets as he slammed the UFC boss in a stunning outburst.

"If you're going to stick to these lies, I'm going to stick to defending myself. Please have your lawyer Hunter Campbell release those text messages," he wrote on Twitter.

"Don't be a f**king liar, my reputation has already taking enough hits. I don't need this bulls**t 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."

He added: "I don't even make half of half of what Diante Wilder makes. If my reputation causes you to undervalue me this much. Just go ahead and release me from my @Ufc contract altogether. I'm sure some promoter somewhere will be more than happy to pick me up.

"And if I wanted to compare money to someone else, I would compare money to my brothers. I see firsthand the way the NFL treats their champion athletes, there's a huge difference. I've kept my mouth shut my entire career.

"Do I make 5+ per fight yes. Should I stick to that number for my super fights? No. If you don't agree with me you just don't know business. I certainly didn't ask for 30, never even threw out a number."

During a media scrum on Friday, White had said: "I'll quote him and what he had said to my lawyer. He told my lawyer he wants what Deontay Wilder was paid.

"I think it was $30 million was what Deontay Wilder was paid."
