It looks like the proposed heavyweight battle in between Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou is a dead deal according to a series of tweets.

Sadly, it looks like the possible heavyweight battle in between UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou has hit a stalemate according to a series of tweets from Jones on late Wednesday afternoon.

He pumped the fans up with the idea of a quick deal.

Currently in negotiation with @UFC as we speak

However then everything came crashing down.

Jones states that the deal was stopped even prior to any money was talked about. If he was going to move up in weight, plainly Jones was hoping for a larger income.

Prior to even talking about numbers, the UFC hesitated to pay more for the Francis super battle/ for me to relocate to heavyweight. Said I might potentially make more in pay-per-view buys.

Truthfully no, not in the phase of my profession. I might retire today. I have actually currently done my task, I have actually offered this business over a years of home entertainment. https://t.co/8V3iORDXAk

He then regreted about what his future with the UFC might be.

It’s been enjoyable you men, possibly I’ll see you all in a year or more.

Perhaps when they’re prepared to do much better business I’ll return, till then health physical fitness and family.

He then clarified what some might take as a jab at the UFC.

I need to’ve worded that in a different way, I really believe these men do terrificbusiness Now things simply aren’t where I desire them to be.

He then sent out a message to his fellow light heavyweights.

Red panty night for the light heavyweight division

Ngannou, who simply protected a amazing first-round knockout, has yet to comment on the tweets at press time. The battle has actually remained in the leading edge of fan’s minds for weeks and it looked like though both men were game for the match. The UFC supposedly wasn’t ready to work out and the battle collapsed.

The UFC is getting ready for an unofficial UFC card on May 30, apparently in Las Vegas, NV.
