Jon Jones is not willing to come back to the UFC right now after his negotiations with the company didn’t go the way he was looking for it to. Jones posted to his Twitter account on Thursday noting that he is “currently in negotiation” but shortly after said that the company wasn’t willing to pay him more for a superfight with Francis Ngannou or a move to heavyweight.

Jones added that the UFC tried to tempt him saying he could “possibly earn more in pay-per-view buys” and said “It’s been fun you guys, maybe I’ll see you in a year or two…Maybe when they’re ready to do better business I’ll come back, until then health fitness and family.”
