UFC light heavyweight G.O.A.T. is feuding with the league over the revenue share going to fighters generally, and himself specifically. "Bones" says he's content to not fight and wait for a release. UFC president Dana White says he believes things will work out, and Jones will fight this year.
Dominick Reyes. coming off a decision loss to Jones in February, spoke recently with Luke Thomas on SiriusXM's Fight Nation, and expressed his frustration.
“If he’s not gonna fight, then you’re done,” said Reyes, as transcribed by Jesse Holland for MMA Mania. “You’re done, you’re stripped, it’s over because he retired. I mean I guess it’s not stripped, it’s more retired. He said he’d walk away ... I don’t know, he’s trying to twist and make it so he can get more fans, ‘I’m a champion for the fighters, I’m doing all these other things.’ He should have just fought me. You can’t sit out two years with a new champion and then be like, ‘Well, I’m the undisputed champ.’ You quit.”
