    No. Francis wanted to wait until September when Dana wanted him to fight in August. He needed a main event, and this was his way of pouting.

    The real benefit for the UFC is they have Francis boxed in as to who he can fight next. Instead of Francis & Jones working together to make the fight happen, the UFC can now say "unify or get stripped".

    If Francis sticks to his guns & says he will only fight Jones, then he will be stripped & Stipe will be inserted vs the interim turned undisputed champion.

    After that the UFC will probably strike a deal with Jones who will slightly lower his asking price to fight a champ not named Francis, & Francis will have played himself.

    Absoluite this! thanks for writing down.

    Jones coaxed Ngannou to wait for him so that both get big money, however they can not play this game with Dana.
    Ngannou will now have to fight the interim Champion or get stripped.
    Jones will not get what he wants.

    Francis is good hearted, Jones would have never done this for Francis.

    Cause Francis wanted .01 percent freedom

    he wanted an extra month before the fight happened, a very big demand.

    Of course, dana being the humanitarian he is put all his power into shaming Francis for asking for only an extra month.

    Having a interim champion is always better for the real champion, title unification fights are always bigger. How is Francis hurt in any way if there's an interim champ or not?
