Francis Ngannou Has an Unexpected Reaction After Mike Tyson Calls Jon Jones the MMA GOAT to His Face

Francis Ngannou is gearing up for his first-ever professional boxing match against Tyson Fury next month. Moreover, he is training with boxing icon Mike Tyson for that fight. Recently, both Ngannou and Tyson paired up for an interview where the latter claimed that Jon Jones was his favorite MMA fighter. ‘The Predator’ had an interesting reaction to that claim.


Ngannou has been training hard under Mike Tyson for his fight in Saudi Arabia in October. The duo recently convened to engage in a discourse regarding some of the most exceptional athletes and performers in history in a video posted by ‘Complex’. Let us now examine the proceedings of the aforementioned interview.

 

Mike Tyson calls Jon Jones his MMA “GOAT”

As both ‘Iron’ and ‘The Predator’ were having a conversation, the question popped up about the best fighter in MMA for each individual. Firstly, Tyson stated Francis Ngannou is his favorite fighter since they’re training together. The boxing icon said, “God! You [Ngannou].” But then he mentioned about the reigning heavyweight champion and the Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov“There’s so many of them. I like Jon Jones, I like Khabib [Nurmagomedov],” said Mike Tyson.


But he maintained his ground on claiming that Jon Jon Jones is the best. This pick stems from the fact that ‘Bones’ had some misfortunes outside the Octagon – from his legal battles to failed drug tests. Despite that, Jones was still able to become a champion in the UFC. Tyson added, “I have to go with Jon Jones because of all of his adversity, and all he went through and he still managed to become champion. ” Meanwhile, Ngannou shared a rather usual response to Tyson’s pick.

 

Francis Ngannou sides with Tyson

MMA fans are clamoring to witness Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones fight each other inside a cage. It is a fight that they have wanted for a long time. Moreover, some fans thought that there might be some bad blood between the two heavyweights. However, that is not the case. There is nothing but respect between Ngannou and Jones.

 


 

As such, when it came to Francis Ngannou to talk about his pick for the best MMA fighter, he echoed the same sentiment as Mike Tyson. “As long as I want to fight Jon Jones, I still think he’ll be my GOAT MMA fighter because he’s just so good,” said the Cameroonian-French fighter. Given his prowess and achievements, Ngannou had to pick Jon Jones as the GOAT of MMA.
