Jon Jones says he will ‘expose’ Francis Ngannou: ‘You ain’t scaring nobody’

New, comments

“You ain’t scaring nobody, I saw your heart. You’re a big old mouse, I’ll expose you.”

Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou continue to exchange words on social media, with both men expressing mutual interest in a potential superfight at heavyweight.

In the latest round of trash talk, ‘Bones’ labelled Ngannou ‘a big old mouse’, referencing his timid, lackluster performance against Derrick Lewis at UFC 226, which saw ‘The Predator’ lose a unanimous decision. Jones has promised to ‘expose’ Ngannou like Lewis did in 2018.

“First you can save the rest of your tongue pictures for your other homies and yes I’m right here, just waking up from watching that Derek Lewis fight again. You ain’t scaring nobody, I saw your heart. You’re a big old mouse, I’ll expose you,” Jones posted on Wednesday.

Since the Lewis fight, Ngannou has bounced back with four straight first-round knockout victories, with wins over two former champions in Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos. The 33-year-old is currently ranked #2 in the UFC heavyweight division and is widely considered one of the most dangerous and intimidating fighters in the world.

Jones, 32, is the No. 1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world and widely considered one of the greatest natural talents in the sport. The JacksonWink product last fought at UFC 247, where he defended his light heavyweight after a hard-fought unanimous decision win over Dominick Reyes.
