Tony Ferguson Has Bizarre Callout Of Jon Jones
Tony Ferguson is known to be a bit of an odd character. This trend continued, with a recent callout of Jon Jones.
Ferguson is an eccentric personality within the UFC. He was the former interim lightweight champion, and is long overdue for a shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, due to injuries, and mental health issues, this fight has fallen apart four times.
However, it seems that Ferguson may be looking to bypass the lightweight title, altogether. In fact, he appears to be skipping the welterweight and middleweight straps, as well. In a recent Twitter post, he calls out Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. Moreover, he implies that the two met once before, in college.

“Lot Of S–t Talk @JonnyBones You Wanna Play Again Like We Did In College? I Bumped Up Two Weight Classes & I’ll Do It Again Growth. You Wanna Play Chess I’ll Be Your Huckleberry. Got You In 2 Neanderthal, Talked To Your Pops He Knows Who’s Champ. # Anklepick # DavidVSGoliath”
It is bit unclear by the post, but it seems that Ferguson is implying he and Jones wrestled against each other in college. While it could be some other bizarre, convoluted reference, this is how it appears. Either way, he says he is willing to jump up in weight to fight Jones. On the other hand, Jones has been considering a move to heavyweight.
Obviously, it is a ridiculous thought that Tony Ferguson would be able to fight Jon Jones. Nevertheless, it is really interesting to think of a time where these two may have faced off on the wrestling mats.
