Jon Jones Furious At Dana White's Claims He Wanted 'Absurd' Payday To Fight Ngannou

UFC boss Dana White says light heavyweight champion Jon Jones "tarnished his own reputation" and "can do whatever he wants", after the fighter threatened to quit the promotion over a bitter pay row. He [Jones] said, "I don't give a f*** what the numbers are!"
Jones wrote that he has "nothing to really gain" from fighting top light heavyweight contenders Dominick Reyes or Jan Blachowicz, and that those two should fight for the vacant title. I could care less to be honest with you. Interesting is that White and the UFC have refused to divulge any specifics or what exactly constitutes "absurd" amounts of money. In one of his tweets he was saying that I tarnished his - I tarnished you?
The tweets are part of an ongoing war of words between Jones and UFC president Dana White.
Jones, 32, revealed the Ngannou negotiations via social media May 21, claiming the UFC immediately informed him he wouldn't make any additional money to move up a weight class. "He wants to sit out, fight, he can do whatever".
Jones has since refuted White's claims and went as far as suggesting that White was not being truthful with negotiations for a potential showdown. I tarnished you? You've done a very good job of tarnishing you.
"We have text messages from Jon Jones", White said. I don't need this bullshit Dana.
"I don't even make half of half of what Diante Wilder makes".
Jon Jones is arguably the greatest MMA fighter ever who achieved his success with the UFC.
Jones though responded once again on Twitter on Sunday, slamming White for bringing up his life outside of UFC as a reason why he doesn't deserve more pay and demanding a UFC release so he could potentially earn more from going into boxing. "Just go ahead and release me from my UFC contract altogether", Jones continued. He holds the most successful title defenses in UFC light heavyweight history, and his only loss came under highly controversial circumstances, when he was disqualified for throwing an illegal elbow in a fight he was dominating in 2009. "I never made a number offer." . Although, he said that he'd settle for half of the $30 million that Wilder makes while acknowledging that White called him the GOAT.
Things have taken a poor turn between Jones and the UFC, only time will tell if they can mend the bridges that hav been burnt.
'Being the greatest of all time does not mean he will get $30 million [£24million],' White said.
