The current UFC light heavyweight champion and one of the greatest pound for pound MMA fighters of all time Jon Bones Jones has been having a feud with the now recently crowned UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. After winning the middleweight belt, Adesanya was quick to outline his plans for a potential fight with Jones and said that he believes he’ll fight the light heavyweight king in 2021. Jones has now reacted to Adesanya’s fight timeline.
Jones was quick to send a prompt reply back to Adesanya and said that by the time 2021 arrives and Adesanya feels confident enough to face him, he might have moved up to bigger and more daunting challenges in the heavyweight division. Here’s what he had to say:
By the time this kid gets his confidence together, I’ll probably already be in the heavyweight division. I don’t need to wait till 2021 to start believing in myself.
