The tweet and the reply sparked the debate of who is going to come out victorious if the two face each other. With Ngannou no longer in the UFC, it seems we will never get to find out who the best is between them in the Octagon ring.
You struggled against Gane.
Jones destroyed him.

Lol, Francis a quitter l’ufc alors qu’on lui avait donner un combat contre Jones avec le plus gros salaire des poids lourds. Il a pris peur mdr.

You ran away and ducked him for 3 years. You got a better shot at beating Fury in a boxing match then you'll ever have with Jones.

If you recall Francis Ngannou left the UFC heavy weight champion position vacant after he couldn’t come to an agreement with Dana White for a new contract.
Dana White claimed he offered Francis Ngannou the highest salary that has ever been given to any UFC fighter if he agreed to a title defence fight with Jon Jones as part of the new contract negotiations.
Francis Ngannou was quick to deny these claims during an interview posted on his social media handles saying Dana White couldn’t meet any of his demands for a new contract.
