Former UFC two-division champion Daniel Cormier believes Jon Jones should be well compensated to fight heavyweight champ Francis Ngannou but not more than the company’s biggest star. Jones, a former two-time light heavyweight champ, has been in a public spat with the UFC over wanting a new deal to fight Ngannou, but it appears the promotion won’t budge. According to UFC president Dana White, Jones asked for $30 million, which Jones refuted . Jones said he recently had a conversation with Hunter Campbell, the UFC’s executive vice president and chief business officer, and let him know that anywhere around eight to $10 million would be too low . But while rival Cormier thinks Jones deserves to get paid, DC believes Jones could be pricing himself out. “Jon Jones deserves his money,” Cormier said on his “DC & Helwani” ESPN show.
