Jon Jones wanting more money to compete at heavyweight is nothing new. The pound for pound great was talking about it over two years ago, at the UFC 235 media day in February, 2019.

Conor did show what talking and asking can do but Conor is also wildly popular. Jon needed to gain the love of the fans years ago but he didn't. Jon has had no right to ask for Conor money until right now because his lack of interest turned to all of the interest when he said he was moving up to heavyweight. Dana will use past numbers to show Jon's worth but Jon needs to focus on how much interest this fight is getting. I know Jon isn't asking for 50 million but it's a good starting point in the negotiation if he's trying to get 20 million or so. He should focus on the percentage of the PPV money.

Conor went up two weight classes on short noticed while sick or something before he asked for big money. He also sold out arenas before he was anywhere near the main event and still didn’t publicly demand more money.

Jones understood wrong. To make ”connor money” its not only to ask. Its to deliver. To create connor-like interest.

JJ is asking for more money just after signing a new contract. If u wanted more because ur worth more then argue that before the new contract.

Jones should be a bit more humble. DC was 38 years old (and clean) in their 2nd fight... but he still dominated Jones for more than 10 minutes.

THIS WAS actual questions that had relevance but Its time for sport news to start firing or demoting reporters who answer the question for them or just talk to get messages or options on air. If they can't put some thought into questions they will ask then they arent worth the time.

Connor has done so much for this sport showing your worth and getting paid for it all these Fighters need a pay raise. Prime example Rory MacDonald only got paid $50,000 for that Epic/fight of the year fight against robbie lawler. People can say what they want the UFC needs to pay jones and Francis BIG MONEY for this these Fighters are so underpaid

Khabib made the most in one fight, which was 6 million for the conner fight, jon jones has already said no to 8 to 10 mill, which would be the biggest payday for a ufc fighter ever. I don't think Jon is scared, but it does look like he's pricing him self out abit. Say he wants 25 to 30 million. They would also need to give that to francis, to make it fair francis is the champ he needs to be getting at least as much. And I don't think the ufc will do a pay out that big, I know boxing does bigger numbers, but I think it's probably due to boxing having multiple big organizations not just one like ufc, also boxing's been around for alot longer, mabye it has more patrons and sponsors built up over time. I'm just speculating here with this last bit though I don't know for sure.

Give the man 15mil God damn he deserves it dana makes so much every card and all the fighters don't really get shit unless they get fight of the night and even then. Jon Jones deserves 15 and let him retire soon. Dana jumping all over piracy and increasing the price why should he not got a percentage without him it wouldn't even be a big draw to begin with even if it's not ngannou Jon Jones is bringing so many people to the table they both are so give them both what they deserve how is the organization making more than the people fighting to begin with

You guys are all dumbasses: It’s not that simple bro most fighters just want a higher percentage of the revenue which is completely fair. The UFC pays the fighter 16 percent of the revenue which is ridiculous. Every fighter on the roster including Mcgregor is getting robbed HARD. For example, Jon Jones vs DC 2 sold around 800,000 ppv’s. Jones made 500k and Dc made 1 million in disclosed pay. Compare that to FURY VS WILDER which sold around the same amount they made around 30 million EACH. That’s a 60 million dollar payout and a 10 million dollar disclosed payout compared to Jones vs DC 1.5million dollar payout. Another example is Conor vs Diaz 2 which did around 1,500,000 ppv buys...Conor and Diaz COMBINED made 5 million in disclosed pay which is terrible to compared to what Cotto vs Floyd did which also had 1.5 million pay per view buys. Combined they had a 40 million dollar payout and that’s not even counting the PPV. I literally could go on and on for every event. And remember these are the main eventers...the co main and below is getting robbed EVEN WORSE. They are not paid what they are worth at all. Also they can’t just leave the organization for another organization because they have to be discharged first which is why Dana literally holds them hostage and says just retire to people like Jones and Masvidal because he’s so controlling to the point that he doesn’t want another promoter to pick them up and actually pay them what they are worth.
