Francis Ngannou claps back at Dana White!

During his discussion of Ngannou’s PFL contract, Dana again criticized the Cameroonian fighter for passing up the chance to take on Jon Jones. Francis, who had previously touched on such accusations, responded this time by blasting his former employer on Twitter. 

The former UFC heavyweight champion denied Dana’s assertion that Bones had made him nervous by saying, “I’m finally getting paid and respected, and have a deal that’s fair and equal for all parties. Why are you so against me being free and happy?” 

The seasoned MMA fighter opposed all of Dana’s accusations against him in three distinct points, beginning with how his UFC contract ended and pointing out how he had competed three times in the previous three years. Ngannou also gave the go-ahead for a potential future bout against Jon Jones if Dana offers the PFL.

What remarks by Dana White garnered clap back from Francis Ngannou?

Francis Ngannou avoided the fight with Jon Jones while he was a UFC fighter, according to White, who has stated this numerous times. During yesterday’s post-fight news conference for UFC Vegas 73, the UFC president reiterated that Ngannou could not accept the possibility of losing to Jones. 

“Francis wants to take zero risks. He doesn’t want to take any chances. And he obviously didn’t want to take a chance against Jon Jones. After we saw what happened with Ciryl Gane, I don’t blame him,” Dana said.
