It’s no secret that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and interim middleweight champ Israel Adesanya don’t like one another.
In fact, Adesanya recently noted that he’d love a superfight with “Bones” inside Raiders Stadium in Las Vegas come 2021. Of course, Jones picked up on “Stylebender’s” comments, and offered a lengthy response on Twitter, vowing to “expose” Adesanya if he continues to step to an “animal” like himself.
“Keep convincing yourself that one day you’ll be ready to face a boss like me. I’ll keep convincing myself that when that day comes, I will make you my absolute bitch. You said you saw me fight in person against Thiago and I didn’t look the same. I also got to see you fight KG, didn’t need to be in person. You were almost knocked out on more than one occasion. Thiago couldn’t even touch my face and he grew up kickboxing.
“You only got to see my striking that night and now you’re convinced you’ll beat me? Let me see you in a wrestling match or a jujitsu tournament, you probably wouldn’t even place. I can see you’re starting to sip your own Kool-Aid, I know how it feels, I’ve been there before. Only I was around 23. Just don’t become delusional kid, fuck with a beast like me and I will expose you.”
Adesanya is main eventing UFC 243 form Melbourne, Australia this weekend inside Marvel Stadium. He’ll unify his interim middleweight title with Robert Whittaker’s undisputed belt. It’s being hyped up as the biggest fight in Australian history. As for Jones, he hasn’t fought since his July split decision win over Santos, but has teased he has big fight news coming soon.
