And immediately after the win, the Cameroonian was called out by Bones for what could be a monster showdown later this year.

Jones hasn’t fought since last February, when he narrowly outpointed Dominick Reyes and is currently working hard to for his eagerly-anticipated move to heavyweight.

And after watching the 265lb showdown from the comfort of his sofa, he made his intention to face Ngannou clear.

Shortly after Ngannou’s win, UFC legend Jones tweeted: “Let’s play baby.”

Bones then followed up that tweet with one urging the UFC to meet his demands for a pay rise, adding: “Show me the money.”

But who would go into the fight as favourite?

Both fighters stand at an imposing 6ft 4in – with Jones boasting a marginally longer reach at 84 1/2in compared to Ngannou’s 83in.

Ngannou, despite boasting 12 KOs from his 19 fights, has lost three times along with his 16 victories.
