Sunday, the much-publicized beef between Jon Jones (26-1, one no-contest) and UFC President Dana White came to a head when Jones officially announced that he’d be vacating the promotion’s Light Heavyweight championship.

Jones made it official with these two tweets

The spat between Jones and White began last Thursday after negotiations for Jones’ next UFC fight soured.

Dana White had this to say about the failed contract talks in a conversation with ESPN:
“It’s one thing to come out and say, ‘I want more money.’ The amount of money Jon Jones wanted—first of all, in the light heavyweight division, [a rematch] between Dominick Reyes is the fight that makes sense. Is Jon Jones going to fight Francis Ngannou and then take a run at the heavyweight title? I don’t believe that. He’s never wanted to move to heavyweight before.”

White’s comments continued with:
“For the amount of money he’s asking for, it’s not going to happen. He couldn’t be asking for a more absurd amount of money at a worse time.”

Jones then took to Twitter to accuse White of dishonesty:

By simply going on Jon Jones’ Twitter timeline and reading his recent posts, one can plainly see that his relationship with Dana White is in a state of disarray.

It is in this writer’s opinion that the relationship between Jon Jones and Dana White is now beyond repair and looks to end in the nastiest fighter divorce that I’ve seen in my time following MMA.

Jones also accused White of tarnishing him, to which White responded with:

“I tarnished you? You’ve done a very good job of tarnishing you.”

There’s likely only one way this marriage can end.

All indications seem to suggest that it’s heading in that direction.
