Jon Jones is all set to defend his UFC light heavyweight title against Thiago Santos at the T-Mobile Arena which will take place at UFC 239 on July 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Santos recently gave an interview to a Brazilian outlet Combate, where he pulled no punches while describing the current light heavyweight champion. He said that Karma will eventually catch up with Jones and he will be remembered as a Roider and the guy who drinks and drive.

I’m not bothered by it (the controversy around Jones),” Santos said. “It’s karma, he’ll have to live with it. He will be remembered as a roider, a guy who drives while drunk. That’s his business. I have to be remembered for not doing those things. It’s his life. If that’s how he wants to live his life, that’s his problem. It doesn’t bother me. It’s like I said, you can’t argue about his talent inside the Octagon, but outside of it, unfortunately, he’s not a good role model. That’s what I think.”

Jon Jones then took to Twitter to blast Thiago Santos and said that Santos is losing the fight on July 6.

I’ve shown my opponent nothing but respect yet today’s headlines are of him talking shit. 95% of my opponents insult my personal life before the fight, 100% of them end up losing the fight. Who’s ready for July 6?” – Jon Jones tweeted.

I don’t think he’s nervous, it’s just his way of winning some type of moral victory over me. It’s his insurance for when he loses, at least he’ll be known as a good guy.” he finally said.

What do you do when you see no holes in your opponents game? You pretend to be extremely confident by talking a bunch of crap, left a bunch of weights and pray that your knock out power somehow comes through for you.” Jones Tweeted.
