“I think that Jon is in a weird place right now,” Smith said. “I’ve won three fights in five months. Jon Jones has won three fights in five years. Like, what more do I need to do? I’m busting my ass.

“I’m in great, entertaining fights with three finishes. So a part of me is like, what are you even talking about? You don’t even really fight. Until just now, Jon Jones wasn’t even eligible.”

He also said that he doesn’t care what Jon Jones has to say and says he is not trying to walk his way into a title fight.

I think some of the things I say bother him because I think it’s true,” Smith said. “I’m not one of these guys trying to build any animosity with Jon. I don’t give a s*** about Jon Jones. It’s about the title to me. Likely, he’s going to be the one that has it, I would guess, so he’s the one people ask the questions about.

“The things that bother Jon are when people ask me if I think he cheats. Yeah, I do. He’s failed a drug test. How can you argue that? He’s been suspended twice for use. I’m not the only one talking about Jon Jones. I don’t know what his deal is, but I honestly don’t give a f***.”

Do you think Anthony Smith deserves a title shot next?
