Israel Adesanya goes in on Jon Jones: F–k this c–t

UFC Middleweight Champ Israel Adesanya and UFC legend Jon Jones have been on a collision course for quite a while now. The duo has been going back and forth with taunts and insults on social media for the past two years.

Adesanya was last jabbing Jones regarding his domestic violence arrest this time last month. More recently, Israel Adesanya went all guns blazing at Jon Jones at the TMZ headquarters.

“I’m glad I can be invited to TMZ. I’m not here getting looked up for the wrong reasons being put up on TMZ and some crazy video of me banging my head on a cop car or something crazy like that,” Adesanya referenced Jones. “I’m glad that’s not me. Aye, knock on wood. There’s still time.”

‘The Last Stylebender’ claimed that the beef was started by Jon Jones and he even claimed that it actually started with TMZ.

“Jones is the one who started the beef on TMZ. He put my name in his mouth first. He was a fan and then he realized there’s an opportunity there. You’re supposed to be the GOAT and you want to fight me? That shows me you think that I’m a threat.”

“F–k this c–t,” Adesanya continued. “But hey, he needs to find himself first. Fight his demons, that’s the main thing he needs to be fighting. Go back to church. Philippians 3:16 [4:13] or whatever it was. Go back to church.”

Adesanya is refering to Jones’ chest tattoo . On there, Jones has Philippians 4:13 tattooed. The bible verse translates to: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Back in 2019, Jones went on a similar rant at TMZ saying he would make Adesanya call him daddy:

“If you think you killed 44 yr old Anderson, you didn’t,” Jones tweeted out … “I’m not really sure what fight you’ve been watching.”

“You got past the legendary GOAT, now come f*ck with the King of the jungle. I’ll make you call me daddy by the third.”

Former Light-heavyweight kingpin Jon ‘Bones’ Jones fought his last UFC fight in February 2020 and has since been teasing a move to heavyweight. On the other hand, UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya recently defended his belt successfully against Robert Whittaker at
UFC 271.

With both guys being on different trajectories in their respective careers, a super-fight in the future seems highly unlikely for the time being.
