Israel Adesanya Goes Off On Jon Jones
What started out from what looked like a respective call out back in April, when Jon Jones said he could see himself fighting Israel Adesanya in the future, has turned into a full blown verbal war between the two champions. When Adesanya responded by saying that he had killed one GOAT and would happily kill another, things escalated pretty quickly into the feud we’re seeing today.
Over the last couple of hours, Adesanya has taken to social media to hit back at ‘pervert’ Jones, who yesterday tweeted, “I formally release DC as being my pussy, Izzy now takes the throne”.
As well as taking a dig at Jones for his hit-and-run incident in 2015, where he crashed into a car being driven by a pregnant lady and then ran from the scene, Adesanya also posted a video discussing the ‘alleged’ incident where Jones was said to have hided under a cage in his gym all day, to avoid being tested by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
‘The Last Stylebender’ then replied to some fans’ tweets, accusing Jones of having ‘roid rage’.
Not done there, Adesanya then retweeted a couple of fans’ tweets. The first accusing Jones of being a snitch. And the second showing a GIF of Jones running from USADA, to hide under a cage.
Adesanya is fresh off his second round stoppage win over Robert Whittaker earlier this month at UFC 243, where the 30 year old won the UFC middleweight title in front of 57,000 fans. Jones was last seen inside the Octagon at UFC 239, where he defended his light heavyweight title, beating Thiago Santos via split decision.
‘The Last Stylebender’ has predicted that he will face ‘Bones’ in early 2021, at the new Allegiant Stadium, which is being built currently in Las Vegas. If we have to wait over a year to see these two go at it inside the Octagon, we can expect plenty more words exchanged between the two before then.
