It looks like the online feud between UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones isn’t ending anytime soon.
The pair have been very vocal about each other for months now. Jon Jones has expressed his disdain for Adesanya on numerous occasions as well and he has also said that he can’t wait to slap Israel for disrespecting him.
Israel Adesanya recently appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, where he said that a fight between him and Jon Jones is inevitable and also responded to Jones calling him a p***y.
“If Dom [Reyes] takes out Jon [Jones], that makes no difference. What I say is going to happen is still going to happen in 2021,” he said. “We’ll see what the landscape of the year  shows us.”
“I heard ‘Oh Israel’s a p*ssy.’ How the f*ck am I a p*ssy? Do you not know I won the Ariel Helwani The Nose Fighter of the Year? P*ssys don’t win that! Hell no.”
“He can say whatever he wants to say, I can say the same thing…” Adesanya said about Jones. “…I can say whatever I want [but] it’s all words. Eventually, when we see each other, we will see each other. I still have never seen me and him in the same room together. I wonder why. But eventually, we will see each other at some point, and he’s going to have to see me like everybody else does.
“When I see him, he’ll see me, and he’ll feel me. He’ll take me in as the man that I am. All six foot four, skinny..” Adesanya said. “He’ll see me and realise ‘Oh sh*t, this guy ain’t as small as people think.’
Jon Jones also previously said that Israel Adesanya will be only remembered for his walkouts to which he responded by saying that Jones will be remembered as a drug cheat.
“People are gonna remember you because you are a drug cheat. You’re a steroid cheat, that’s what they’re gonna remember you for. All that sh*t that you have done before shogun, no one really cares about that because you cheated
“You popped in the same month as your brother in 2016, that’s all they’re gonna remember. My walkouts are gonna be even more greater than his career
“Like I said, I am just getting started…I am nearly two-years into the UFC, imagine what I am gonna do in the next 5-6 years,” Adesanya concluded.
