Negotiations haven’t gone well, and White not only again questioned Jones’ desire to fight, he also says that the next title shot will go to Miocic instead.
“Jon made it very clear he won’t fight Stipe, so, yeah,” White said when asked if Miocic could face the winner of Ngannou vs. Lewis.
“If Jon Jones wants to fight, he can. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t have to. Nobody’s gonna force Jon Jones to fight.”
