Jon Jones fires a volley of tweets at Israel Adesanya – but is ‘done with him’ until 2021


Jon Jones has had too much of Israel Adesanya. The youngest champ in UFC history is absolutely done with the current middleweight champion. He has also vowed not to reply to ‘The Last Stylebender’ untill 2021.

Jones and Adesanya have been going back-and-forth for quite some months now over Twitter. Jones has made it clear that he doesn’t mind welcoming Adesanya to the light heavyweight division. However, Adesanya is more focused on clearing the middleweight division first. He has made his plan clear that he wants to defend the belt that he has won from Robert Whittaker.

That being said, Adesanya still didn’t take a step back while trying to troll Jones. Recently, Adesanya took to Twitter to poke fun at Jones’ past cocaine usage. The post was enough to gain Jones’ attention who took to his own social media to respond. He also made it clear with the post that he was done with Israel untill they had an actual fight lined up.






Jones is currently scheduled to fight upcoming challenger Dominick Reyes. The news was confirmed by UFC President Dana White following initial reports from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto. “Bones” last stepped inside the Octagon back in July at UFC 238 where he defeated Thiago Santos in a close fight. On the other hand, the 29-year old Dominick Reyes is currently 12-0 inside the Octagon and is coming off of a KO win over former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman.

Meanwhile, Adesanya was planning to defend his belt against the undefeated Paulo Costa. However, the Brazilian is currently out with an injury and will be back by midway next year. Owing to this fact, Adesanya has now turned his attention towards perennial contender Yoel Romero. The fact that the Cuban wrestler is coming off consecutive losses have stacked the odds against him for a title shot. The UFC also thinks that the event wouldn’t sell well on PPV.
