“Send The Deal!”- Jon Jones Responds to Francis Ngannou

Jon Jones seems to be edging closer towards his move up to the Heavyweight Division. The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion has been considering the move for a long time. However, his recent Twitter exchange with “The Predator” Francis Ngannou suggests that we might be closer to watching Jon Jones at Heavyweight than we expect.

Jon Jones, UFC

The exchange between the two started when Jon Jones reacted to Ovince Saint Preux’s Heavyweight debut on 13 May at UFC Ajax.

Ngannou holds a lot of respect for Jon as a fighter. He even stated that Jon Jones is a worthy opponent wherever he fights. But, he didn’t quite anticipate a fight with “Bones” as the latter was still ruling over the Light Heavyweight Division.

However, as Jones put his eagerness to move up on display, Ngannou decided to entertain his thoughts.

“Seemed so real, Francis”- Jon Jones anticipating a fight with Francis Ngannou?

In his response to Ngannou’s Tweet, Jones wrote: “Seemed so real Francis, all that power means nothing when your [haymakers] are too slow. I’m not most my friend.”

And now, we a whole new possibility of the two locking horns inside the Octagon. In fact, Jones is considering a fight with Ngannou quite vividly!

Jones even said that he is looking forward to a fight with either Ngannou or Thiago Santos when he moves up. And, by the looks of it, Ngannou is just as interested as Jones is.
