  • Francis Ngannou shared his honest take on Jon Jones
  • The former UFC heavyweight champ also gave his UFC 285 prediction

As Jon Jones edges closer to his UFC comeback, Francis Ngannou addressed their little back and forth. For “The Predator,” he doesn’t have a problem with “Bones” and if anything, they could even team up in the fight for fair treatment in the UFC.

Francis is confused

Speaking to MMA Junkie, Ngannou said he is not paying attention to the drama regardless if Jones implies that he ran away by departing the UFC amid their talked-about showdown. Instead, the former UFC heavyweight champion is just a bit confused because “Bones” couldn’t decide who he really is.

Ngannou said the last time he checked, Jones was in his shoes, trying to get what he truly deserves from the UFC. And now, he seems like another person.

“I don’t have any problem with Jon Jones. I think we all know that Jon Jones has multiple personality and sometimes it’s even hard for him to figure out who he’s really is and I don’t have nothing to do with that you know I don’t want to be in the fight that are going to be maybe it’s like fighting someone that you could be on his side because like for a long time ago, I think Jon Jones was like kind of like stepping up for himself and then you kind of see that I’m like oh maybe this is something that could be good you know, then you shifted. I think in even though we will always be a potential opponent, I think in this fight we could have been in the same side instead of like fighting against each other which is exactly what the system wants … to divide, to conquer, I’m not really into that game you know,” Ngannou began.

“I understand. I see clearly what’s happening. I understand very well what’s happening… hopefully, they’ll end up being satisfied with whatever he has that changed his mind but I’m good man I mean I don’t have a time to spend on like a drama. I just have a beautiful future ahead of me and I’m gonna be focused on that and be grateful for what life has offered me,” he continued.

Ngannou’s prediction

Jones will make his debut at heavyweight at UFC 285. He will face the No. 1 contender, Ciryl Gane, who was also the last fighter Ngannou beat in the UFC.

When asked about his early prediction, “The Predator” reiterated that Jones’ personality will once again be a major factor in the fight. Ngannou thinks that Gane is a tough one for Jones, but if the “Bones” who will show up at UFC 285 is the fighter who once dominated his division, then it will be an exciting fight.

“This fight can go either way. Ciryl Gane is a tough opponent, very tough one for Jon Jones but you know, we all know Jones is a very special fighter so it depends which Jones are we talking about it depends on the Jon Jones that’s going to show up that night. I think if Jon Jones shows up, it’s gonna be a rough night for Ciryl but uh once again, John Jones, you don’t really know what’s happened with Jon Jones. So we will wait and see if he show up, I think it’s gonna be an amazing fight. This also make the fight exciting you know, there’s a fact that you’re gonna see which Jon Jones is going to show up and if Jon Jones is gonna show up,” Ngannou explained.

Ngannou also said that he has yet to close a deal but his team has already been talking to a few potential opponents. He is heavily linked to a boxing match with Tyson Fury but nothing is concrete yet to this day.

UFC 285 will take place on March 4 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
