UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones has lashed out at Dana White over an ongoing pay dispute that has stopped hopes of a fight with heavyweight Francis Ngannou, with Jones claiming White “lied to the camera.”

Jones was infuriated by an interview in which White claimed the outspoken champion “couldn’t be asking for a more absurd amount of money at a worse time” during talks,, when the pound-for-pound number one live-tweeted his dismay during what he claimed was a brief and fruitless negotiation.
