Francis Ngannou scoffs at Jon Jones' prediction of easy win over him in your dreams you're fat

Former undisputed UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou has scoffed at arch-rival, Jon Jones’ prediction of a dominant win over him if they ever share a cage in the future – pointing fun at the Rochester native’s recent gain in weight since his heavyweight ascension.

Ngannou, a former undisputed heavyweight champion titleholder under the Dana White-led banner, has been sidelined from mixed martial arts competition since January 2022, most recently unifying the divisional titles with a unanimous decision win over the then-unbeaten, Ciryl Gane.

And making a move to the Peter Murray-led PFL (Professional Fighters League) last year, Ngannou was in attendance alongside Mike Tyson during last night’s PFL vs. Bellator: Champs event in the Middle East – which was also attended by former duel-weight UFC champion, Jones.

Once more pressed on a potential future super fight with Ngannou, Jones claimed he would beat the trio of expected next foe, Stipe Miocic, and current interim champion, Tom Aspinall – as well as the aforenoted Batié native.

And with cameras panning over to catch Francis Ngannou’s reaction to Jones’ claim, the Cameroonian was spotted saying “In your dreams, you’re f*cking fat.”

Making his professional boxing debut back in August of last year, Ngannou fought to a controversial split decision loss to unbeaten incumbent WBC heavyweight gold holder, Tyson Fury in Riyadh, dropping the British fighter early in their 12 round showdown.
