We now have a better idea of what Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou told each other during their face to face confrontation at a PFL event.
On Friday night, both Jones and Ngannou attended the PFL Atlanta event, months after Ngannou left the UFC amid a rumored fight between the two.
During the event, Jones and Ngannou were seen speaking to each other for a few minutes.
Jones took the first shot at Ngannou when he said “You don’t want to no smoke.”

In an extended clip of their convo, Ngannou could be seen telling Jones that he wanted to kick his a–.
Jones replied by telling him that he needed to “learn to wrestle, learn jiu-jitsu and it’s going to take you more than a year.” Which led to Ngannou firing back by saying “I’ll wait for you for more than a year.”
Here’s the extended video of the exchange from Cageside Press.
Unfortunately a fight between Francis Ngannou isn’t happening anytime soon due to Ngannou’s falling out with the UFC and Jones recently signing an extension with the MMA organization.
