Jon Jones joins Jake Paul in blasting ‘BORING’ UFC 270 main event just days after Dana White makes U-turn on YouTuber

Jon Jones destroys Francis Nganou’s ‘boring’ win over Cyril Gain at UFC 270 with Jake Paul.

Ngannou retained his heavyweight title in five rounds against interim champion Gain.

The winner was seen as a potential opponent to welcome UFC legend Jones planning to return this year.

But the man himself was no less impressed and signaled to continue sitting on the edge.

Jones, 34, tweeted: “Lol s*** I can enjoy retirement.”

And the award-winning 25-year-old from YouTube star Paul posted: “Boring fight.”

The 5-0 boxer has recently courted a bitter feud with UFC president Dana White, accusing him of underpaying his stable.

Ngannou, 35, walked away with only £440,000 payday, but would earn more due to his pay-per-view bonus.

But figures released after UFC 272 showed that only £1.3 million was spent on the entire card.

In contrast, WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury, 33, reportedly raked in a whopping £22 million for his trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder, 36.

Paul exploded: “I can’t stress enough how bad this is..

“My next steps to help in this situation will be announced tomorrow. Pay the fighters more.”

Paul has knocked out and beaten two of White’s former fighters, 37-year-old Ben Askren and 39-year-old Tyrone Woodley.

Ex-UFC champion Woodley was initially defeated on points in August, but was KO’d in his rematch in December.

I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him. You know, he’s doing his job there.

Paul’s more than two wins came against online rival ‘AnsonGib’ and ex-NBA point guard Nate Robinson, 37.

As a result, White has ridiculed the social media sensation for failing to fight an opponent who had previously boxed professionally.

But the UFC boss spoke recently about a feud with Paul, telling Manouk Akopian: “He hasn’t really been a thorn in my side.

“I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him. You know, he’s doing his job out there.

“He’s a young guy who’s got a fan and is trying to make some money. I never blame anyone for that.”
