Israel Adesanya

Israel Adesanya has chimed in on the recent social media beef between his teammate, countryman, and friend, Dan Hooker, and his long-time rival, Jon Jones.

The former UFC light-heavyweight champion has been receiving flack from fighters and fans around the world ever since he was arrested on domestic violence charges back in September. Jones put himself back in the firing line last week when he reacted to Chael Sonnen’s recent arrest and suggested that ‘The American Gangster’ was apprehended for the same crime.

It has since come to light that Sonnen was in fact protecting his wife and may have beaten up five people in the process.

Upon hearing of Sonnen’s heroics, Hooker took to social media to throw a dig at Jones.

“Imagine beating up 5 people and not one of them is your wife,” Hooker tweeted. “(JJones (Jon Jones) rn (mindblowing emoji)

On Christmas day, Jones fired back at the New Zealander.

“I was triggered by your disingenuous attempt to bring attention to Chael’s situation,” Hooker wrote on Twitter. “He was arrested for defending his wife, you were arrested for assaulting yours. (apple & oranges emojis)”

“Life hack: if you don’t beat up your wife, family events will be more enjoyable. Merry Xmas bitch,” Hooker added.
