Israel Adesanya And Jon Jones Go At It Again
The on going feud between Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones is the war of words that just keeps on giving. At this rate, we may need to start a weekly round up of the heated exchanges between the UFC middleweight champion and UFC light heavyweight champion.
It the latest edition of their verbal sparring, Adesanya has just taken to social media in the last couple of hours, to take a shot at Jones. Mocking him for his hit and run incident, his reputation of eye poking in fights, using PEDs and his claim that he had previously used a form of viagra, which was later found to be contaminated.
Within minutes, Jones hit back. At first criticising Adesanya for his lack of originality, and then for getting all hyped up watching cartoons (albeit, technically they are anime).
Jones then posted a video of Adesanya getting knocked out at Glory Of Heroes 7 back in 2017, in his kickboxing days.
‘Bones’ then surprisingly replied to one fan, admitting that he does in fact like ‘The Last Stylebender’. Before adding that he doubts that they will fight.
Adesanya has previously stated that he and Jones will fight in early 2021 at the new Allegiant Stadium, currently being built in Las Vegas. Although Jones has dismissed this idea, saying that by the time Adesanya builds the confidence to fight him in 2021, he would have already moved up to heavyweight.
Currently Jones doesn’t have a fight lined up. Although in the last few days, he has hinted that he will move up to heavyweight and wait for the winner of the trilogy fight between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.
Adesanya on the other hand, fresh of his title win over Robert Whittaker at UFC 243, is expected to defend his 185lbs title against Paulo Costa early next year.
