Ngannou wants Jon Jones next


Obviously, Jon Jones makes more sense for me,” Ngannou told MMA Junkie at a post-fight news conference. “Either way, I’m going to fight. If Jon Jones doesn’t come to heavyweight, the division has to move. As the new heavyweight champion, I decided to move on (and) put more activity in the division than it has in the past two or three years.”
Ngannou said he has no urge for a third fight so soon.
“Personally, no, I don’t feel a need (right now),” Ngannou said. “He said I won’t be a champion until he’s retired, so maybe he’ll retire. But if not, I’ll still be down to fight him. I lost against him and he stands as the greatest heavyweight of all time, so it makes sense for me just to fight him if needed.”
