UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is all set to defend his title against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247, which is scheduled to take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

The pair have been talking trash to each other ever since their fight was announced.

Last week, Jon Jones even took a dig at Dominick Reyes’s attempted to make it in the National Football League, which is one of the most popular sports league in the US.

Dominic watching your interviews, it’s obvious you think you’re better than me,” Jones wrote. “You never struggled with substance abuse, you have your big degrees, was always team captain at everything. We get it.

I’ve been looked over and counted out by guys like you for as long as I can remember,” Jones added. “Year after year I prove guys like you aren’t shit. You’re in my world now.

With that being said I hope you’re training for me harder than you trained for your NFL tryouts. You’re in a whole new league now #StudAthlete < #GodGivenTalent.”

Now Dominick Reyes took to twitter to address Jones’ comments regarding his attempted NFL career.

The NFL didn’t materialize because it simply was not my destiny,” Reyes wrote. “I’m living my destiny right now.”

It didn’t take long for Jones to reply to Reyes’ tweets and he took to social media to mock him once again.

Keep telling yourself that buddy, whatever it takes to get you through camp,” Jones wrote. “I don’t want no excuses after this.

Hey look at me, I’m an athlete!Jones concluded.

  • Champ Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes – for the light heavyweight title
