UFC news: Daniel Cormier says Francis Ngannou didn’t avoid Jon Jones

Daniel Cormier rejects the notion that Francis Ngannou parted ways with the UFC so he didn’t have to fight Jon Jones.. The heavyweight division received a major shakeup Saturday when UFC president Dana White announced that Ngannou (17-3 MMA, 12-2 UFC) had been stripped of the title and was exiting the promotion after the two sides failed to come to terms on a new contract.
