The former light heavyweight champion was tweeting about Francis Ngannou’s second-round knockout of the man widely regarded as the greatest heavyweight in UFC history in the main event of UFC 260. An Ngannou-Jones fight for the heavyweight title would be about as big as it gets in the UFC. It’s also the type of fight the UFC has historically been quick to make over the years.
