Jon Jones believes he ‘just has to get through’ the first round against Francis Ngannou to ultimately defeat him in a potential UFC heavyweight bout.
According to Jones, he is aware of Ngannou’s power in the early rounds but believes his chances of winning the potential fight increase after the first.
“Francis Ngannou is dangerous, yes, and I believe he has a chance to knock me the [expletive] out. Let’s say that out loud,” Jones said. “But if I don’t get knocked out, I believe I win that fight. I just have to get through round one and I win that fight.”
