Jon Jones: Dana White A ‘Liar,’ Asks For UFC Release

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones continues to fire back against the promotion and UFC president Dana White, even demanding his release.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is fed up.

Jones took to Twitter to voice his frustration over the UFC and UFC president Dana White in recent days, taking it up another notch by demanding his release.

Most of the issue stems from an interview White conducted where he claimed Jones asked for an incredible amount of money to move up to heavyweight and face Francis Ngannou. 

Jones denied that, calling White a “(expletive) liar.” 

“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,” Jones posted. “Don’t be a fucking liar, my reputation has already taking enough hits. I don’t need this bullshit 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.”

“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,” he continued. “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.”

Shortly after making the series of posts, Jones went on a bike ride, embarking on a new adventure for himself.
