UFC champion Francois Ngannou is not ready to move on from a possible confrontation with Jon jones … story TMZ Sports it’s the ONLY fight in his mind.
Ngannou was walking around Beverly Hills this week when we asked about his future in combat… given that the UFC and Jones appear to be miles (and millions of dollars) away from making a deal.
In fact, Dana White repeatedly said he was aiming Derrick lewis for Ngannou’s next opponent … and hope this fight takes place this summer.
But, Ngannou says he always has Jones in mind when we asked him who he wanted to fight next – “I want Jon Jones… I love this fight.”
In fact, it looks like Ngannou is still hoping the two sides can make a deal – and we guess all MMA fans are hoping he’s right!
When we spoke with White a few weeks ago he told us that he had “absolutely moved on” to trying to do this fight … and said he wasn’t sure if Jon would ever do it. . fight again in the UFC.
“It’s up to Jon,” White said… “He absolutely could fight again at 205 lbs. He said he wouldn’t fight. [Stipe Miocic] and now Derrick and Francis are fighting, so we’ll see how this fight plays out. “
“There’s nothing wrong with coming out on top either – Jon Jones is undefeated, he’s never been beaten.”
Our sincere thanks to
