JON JONES has called out Francis Ngannou following the Cameroonian’s stunning victory over Stipe Miocic.

Jones, who is gearing up for a move to heavyweight, was watching the 265lb showdown from the comfort of his sofa and made his intention to face Ngannou clear moments after seeing him claim the strap.
He tweeted: “Let’s play baby.”
Bones then followed up that tweet with one urging the UFC to meet his demands for a pay rise.
He added: “Show me the money.”
During the post-fight press conference, he said: “If I’m Jon Jones and I’m at home watching this fight, I’m moving down to 185.”
