This comes after nearly a week of ugly banter with UFC President Daa White. While Jones claimed that he never put a price on the super-fight with Francis Ngannou, White said that he demanded too hefty a sum to fight “The Predator”.

Even though Jones wants nothing to do with the Light Heavyweight division anymore after having been one of the most dominant forces, he is still willing to fight the right fight for the right price.

He has had enough beefs in his time with the promotion. But the one beef that everyone looks forward to being solved inside the Octagon is the one with Middleweight Champion, Israel Adesanya. And apparently, Jones will fight “The Last Stylebender” for the right price.

Jon Jones feels his pay is not worth the damage anymore

As the last Tweet in the series where he announced the news of his unwillingness to fight, he responded to a fan. Brother_Jason said that Jones’ move would hurt Jones himself more than it would the UFC. Jones replied saying that he hurts himself every time he steps into the Octagon. And thus, his pay does not compensate for it anymore.
