“I would rather be a decision fighter than a last for two rounds fighter,” Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou’s Twitter war is getting heavier
Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones
This fire has been sparked again by Jonny Bones when Ngannou returned to Cameroon between his people. After a healthy back and forth between them Jones asked Ngannou to knock him out if they ever faced each other else he’ll be breaking him.
At which the champion Francis Ngannou laughed at him and called Jon Jones a decision fighter. Ngannou says, “Please don’t make me laugh! When is the last time that you break somebody out?”
Ngannou added, “You’re a decision fighter Jon Jones and you’ve barely won a fight lately. But you’re going to break me out,” This tweet is directed towards Jones as he won his last three fights by decision.
Arguably, Thiago Santos and Dominick Reyes also pushed Jones to his limit and Santos lost against him by a controversial split decision and Ngannou directed his tweets towards it.

“I’m just telling you now Francis Ngannou if you want to start this Internet talk, be sure to keep up. Most people that talk shit with me go quiet after a while.Everyone’s going to be the first to smash Jon Jones, very popular theme,”
