‘You’re a Decision Fighter’ Francis Ngannou Mocks Jon Jones Following Heated Argument

Francis Ngannou took to Twitter to hit back at Jon Jones. The current heavyweight champ had some shots of his own after Jones’s warning earlier today.

Previously, Ngannou earned the heavyweight title with a knockout win over Stipe Miocic at UFC 260. The bout was a rematch of their UFC 220 fight. Thereafter, Ngannou was opted to fight Derrick Lewis or Jon Jones next.

“You’re a decision fighter @JonnyBones and you’ve barely won a fight lately”. Francis hit back at Jones following the latter’s threats. The altercation comes as a surprise as many felt that the two fighters were on good terms.

Ngannou called Jones a ‘decision fighter’ in his reply to the former light heavyweight champ. Jones has won 10 out of his 21 fights in the UFC by Unanimous or Split decision. Eventually, Jones is not a happy man after being labeled as that such in a disrespectful manner.

Moreover, Derrick Lewis revealed earlier this week that a fight with Ngannou is all but confirmed. As such, it is possible that this news has possibly upset Jones, who was keen on fighting Ngannou. Recently, Jones has also parted ways with his management team, possibly for failing to acquire a fight with Francis.
