Francis Ngannou has moved on from Jon Jones and his empty promises – ‘I really don’t care anymore’

Defending Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou expects his first title defense to be against former 205-pound champion Jon Jones, who surrender his division strap weight class transitions back in late 2020.

More than 16 months later and still no sign of “Bones.”

That’s why “Predator” is no more Pursuing a war against the longtime king of pound-for-pound, which is understandable given that Jones has talked about switching to heavyweight for almost a decade no progress forward.

“Personally, I don’t really care about that anymore,” Ngannou said MMA Junkie. “There is a lot of talk about Jon Jones. He said a lot of things, but here we are. I didn’t even expect to fight someone other than Jon Jones after the battle with Stipe (Miocic), but here I am. With almost 10 months to go, I will be fighting Ciryl Gane who was not in the picture, in the landscape at that time. “

With Jones dropped from the picture and former champion Stipe Miocic defeated at UFC 260, Ngannou will continue to unify the belts against Ciryl Gane in UFC 270 main event pay-per-view (PPV) next month at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

“Bon Gamin” started the match against Derrick Lewis last August.

“What Jon Jones says and what Jon Jones does are two different things and I can’t bet on that,” Ngannou continued. “I can’t put my money on that. I just do what I’m going to do and we don’t know what the future holds. It’s not something I’m up against anymore. “

Jones will have his own battle this January when he goes to court to answer for this. Francis Ngannou has moved on from Jon Jones and his empty promises – ‘I really don’t care anymore’
