“No man has the right to shame another,” Jon Jones responded to Francis Ngannou’s UFC release

The recent UFC titlist, Jon Jones, will make his heavyweight debut against Ciryl Gane at the T Arena on March 4th and fans are excited that the former UFC light heavyweight champion will return to the Octagon after three years.

Recently, the 35-year-old undefeated fighter opened up about Ngannou’s release from the UFC, where he made it clear that anyone who fights for their worth should be recognized and no man has the right to shame them, and also shared why he did couldn’t get a fight in those three years,

“I’m happy for Francis. I’m glad Francis knows his worth. No one has the right to shame another man for fighting for his worth. I was in a very similar situation to Francis as a light heavyweight. I was never happy with my salary. I was sidelined for three years and missed a lot of time, but here we are now. I encourage Francis on his way and wish him all the best. Another company will be truly blessed to have him.”

In the same interview, Jones revealed his training process over the past three years and said he has never stopped training, although he is not happy with his opponent ahead because he believes he is ready to take on greater challenges.

“I’ve been ready for a while. I trained to fight Francis [Ngannou]I trained to fight Stipe [Miocic]and now Ciryl Gane is the guy I’m fighting.”

“It was a long time coming. That’s three years of training twice a day with no reward. It was frustrating at times. But I stayed true to my goals and dreams and I’m here. I made it. I’m looking forward to it and I’m here for the challenge.”
