Jon Jones Fires Back At Israel Adesanya For Calling Him Out

Israel Adesanya is set to take on Robert Whitaker to unify the UFC’s Middleweight title. However, he has the attention of the Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones.

Jones and Adesanya have been going back and forth for a few months. It started with Adesanya saying he would likely face Jones, just in the future. He stated that now was not the time for the fight.

Now, Jones spoke on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show to discuss the idea of a future fight with Adesanya. He felt disrespected by the fact that Adesanya was implying Jones was plateauing.

“I am 31 years old and I feel like I am still reaching my prime. If you look back…if you look back throughout a lot of my fights, you hear guys who’s fought me say ‘jon is a lot stronger than he looks. Israel is light in the a–. He’s light! He’s skinny. I’ll put my hands on him and teach him a whole different world of hurt. For him to be so frail and to not have a ground game? Its like bro you don’t want to do it.

Then to talk about my stand up against Anthony Smith, with his face all bubbled up against a short wrestler that did that to him is hilarious. I barely get touched in my fight, and so for Israel to talk about his striking skills being so much far ahead of mine is hilarious.”

Jones continued on this fired up rant, reiterating just how small he thinks Adesanya is.

“I think he’s a little light in the a–. He needs to eat some more jerk chicken and come holla at me.”

Jon Jones went to explain just what he thinks Adesanya meant by saying he thought it was the wrong time to face Jones.

“Let me tell you what that means. ‘I’m a b–h. I can’t beat Jon.'”

Fiery words, coming from Jon Jones. He concluded this verbal beatdown with a message for the “Last Stylebender,” implying that he is waiting.

“He knows where I’ll be”

Seems like Jon Jones vs Israel Adesanya is a fight worth making in the future.

  1. Israel adesanya might be a little small to complete the task. But there are definite holes in Jon Jones stand-up game. At least 10 times every fight he has to reset to get back to standing squarely in front of his opponent. And 84 1/2 inch reach is the only reason no one has been able to capitalize on this. In order for Jones to win the stand-up he has to be standing directly in front of his opponent. Anybody with the skill set of an Anderson Silva who can fight at awkward angles will beat Jon Jones in the stand-up. The key to beating Jon Jones is not taking him down, but forcing him to fight in those awkward situations. Forcing him to dig into his tool back to find punches for guys who are not standing in front of him. Using angles. Of course someone is going to have to figure out how to get inside that reach first. But that’s the way to get it done. Mark my words.

  2. they also have to have a competent enough ground game to keep him from taking them there especially when he can put the likes of daniel cormier on his back the biggest problem with those strikers that work at awkward angles is they usually leave themselves open to wrestlers like jon jones.
