Chael Sonnen on the fight between Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones is a fight that many would like to see. Chael Sonnen believes that a fight between the two would be a real spectacle for everyone. Both are great fighters who marked an era of the UFC and showed what quality they possess.

Many hope that the fight will happen and expect a lot from it. “Jon Jones vs. Francis, I think, is the biggest fight you can put on in our industry,” Sonnen said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “It’s also going to be the first fight where [two fighters] have four years of inactivity between the two of them.

It’s a very peculiar situation”.

Chael Sonnen: “Francis appears to be safe"

Sonnen is optimistic about Ngannou and hopes that things will be resolved as soon as possible. There are many rumors about potential fights that could happen in the near future.

Everyone's expectations are high. “Francis appears to be safe in that he hasn’t been stripped, [and if he has, it] hasn’t come out yet,” Sonnen explained. “We’ve heard the rumor that Jones and Stipe were going to fight for an interim championship.

We’ve heard a rumor that Jones and Curtis were going to fight, but that rumor went right away, but it happened, and attached to that fight was going to be an interim championship. If that were true, that would protect Francis — he’s only got so much time to get his contract worked out and his knee healed up." Hope he won't be stripped off.

“I’m just sharing with you that if he comes back and is still undisputed champion, he’s in a pretty good spot, and in fact it would be a title fight because he’s the one bringing the title. But if he gets stripped, all bets are off”. - he concluded.
