JON JONES joined Jake Paul in Francis Ngannou’s ‘BORING’ win over Ciryl Gane at UFC 270.
Ngannou still retains his heavyweight title over five rounds against interim champion Gane.
The winner is welcomed as a potential competitor to welcome back UFC legend Jones, scheduled to return this year.
But the man himself was less than impressed and hinted at continuing to sit on the sidelines.
Jones, 34, tweeted: “Lol S*** I might be retired.”
And award-winning YouTube stardom Paul, 25, posted: “The battle is boring.”
The 5-0 fighter has built a bitter feud with UFC president Dana White recently, accuse him of paying lower barns.
Ngannou, 35, only leaves with a salary of £440,000 but will make more money due to his per-view bonus.
But the figures published after UFC 272 reveal only 1.3 million pounds was spent on the entire card.
In contrast, WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury, 33, is said to have raked in a whopping £22m for his three-part bout with 36-year-old Deontay Wilder.
Paul confided: “I can’t stress enough how bad this is..
“My next step to help resolve this situation will be announced tomorrow. RETURNS TO THE ADDITIONAL PERSON.”
Paul knocked out and defeated two of White’s former boxers, Ben Askren, 37, and Tyron Woodley, 39.
Former UFC champion Woodley initially lost points in August but has since KO’d in their December rematch.
I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him. You know, he’s doing his job.
Dana White on Jake Paul
Paul’s two wins come against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’ and former NBA point guard Nate Robinson, 37.
As a result, White mocked the feeling on social media of having lost against an opponent previously professionally boxed.
But the UFC boss recently talked about his feud with Paul, saying Manouk Akopyan: “He really is not a thorn in me.
“I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him. You know, he’s out there doing his thing.
“He’s a young guy with a fan base and trying to make money. I never blamed anyone for that.”
