Jon Jones isn’t having any of Israel Adesanya’s latest trash talk.
After the newly-crowned interim UFC middleweight champion had some strong words for ‘Bones’ on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show” earlier today, the UFC light heavyweight champ has responded.

So in that regard, it may be tough to call Jones a ‘bully’ for simply responding to the callout. In truth, a now-heated rivalry begun from it. Either way, it’s looking like these two stars will end up fighting at some point.
We will be the winners if and when they do.
