UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones will officially make his first heavyweight title defense at Madison Square Garden. Dana White recently announced that Jones will face the former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 295. While fight fans are ecstatic hearing the announcement, some believe Dana White is trying to overshadow Francis Ngannou yet again.

After becoming the heavyweight champion at UFC 285, fans expected Jones to defend his title very soon. With radio silence from Jon, Dana White had no clue when his next fight would occur. In the months following UFC 285, Jon Jones was rumored to fight Tyson Fury. However, after all the rumors and switching through potential opponents, Jones has landed on fighting Stipe Miocic.

Meanwhile, Tyson Fury’s search for an opponent might have come to a halt. The heavyweight champion is finalizing a fight deal with Francis Ngannou. The search for the Gypsy King’s next fight will finally take place against the former UFC champion. While the news is yet to be made public, sources suggest the deal is very close to being finalized.

With Francis having a potential fight announcement, fans believe Dana White tried to overshadow the PFL fighter yet again with the UFC title fight announcement. Ever since leaving UFC, Ngannou has been targeted by Dana White multiple times. Many suggest Dana White made the Jon Jones fight announcement to get ahead of Ngannou and possibly reduce the hype for his fight.

Many fans want to see Jon Jones go against the heavyweight GOAT Stipe Miocic. However, some believe the fight announcement intentionally got declared when news of Francis vs. Tyson Fury started to gain momentum. Check out some of the fan reactions:

After Francis Ngannou left UFC to sign with PFL, White has continuously tried to downplay Ngannou. The UFC head honcho claimed he ran from the Jones fight and also called him out for making ridiculous demands. White was also ready to make a fight between Jon Jones and Tyson Fury. All the previous events have led fans to believe that Dana White constantly tries to mess with Ngannou.

Like clockwork, old man Dana works in mysterious ways,” tweeted one fan. Others claimed both Stipe and Jones might not even have signed any deal, and Dana simply announced the fight in a panic. While the news of Jones vs. Miocic is confirmed, Ngannou vs. Fury is yet to be made public. However, Fury has hinted that Francis will make 10 to 20 times what he made in UFC.
