Jon Jones was not a fan of Israel Adesanya calling out Alex Pereira.

This past Saturday, Israel Adesanya competed against Jared Cannonier in the headlining bout for UFC 276 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, NV. Cannonier failed to put Adesanya in any real danger as he lost out on the contest on the judges’ scorecards by a unanimous decision.

Adesanya was lambasted by the community for putting on an uneventful performance. Many fans were seen leaving the arena halfway through the main event and before the final round.

Jon Jones ridicules Israel Adesanya callout of Alex Pereira

During the post-fight octagon interview, Adesanya called out Pereira saying, “next time I put you on skates. You’re gonna get frozen like Elsa.” The former UFC Light Heavyweight champion ridiculed Izzy’s reference to the Disney animated family musical Frozen to threaten Alex Pereira.

“Bro I can’t stop thinking about this sh*t. How are you going to threaten a guy like Alex with glossy fingernails and a frozen reference. I’m over here scratching my head.”

Jones enjoyed Pereira’s performance on the night and heaped praises on the rising contender.

“Bro I just went back and watched Alex P fight!! Yeah I’m riding with him all day. He made it look way too easy. Really hard to believe he was unranked before this fight”

Jones shares an update on his return

It had been a while since we heard from arguably the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. ‘Bones’ took to Twitter following Adesanya’s title defense to host an impromptu fan Q&A. 

Jones does not appear to be sure of when he’ll come back.

“I don’t know but I’m glad Dana came out and said something. I’m ready, I’ve been ready. Waiting on a date”

Jones believes beating Stipe Miocic would prove more than defeating Francis Ngannou.

“At this point I’m looking to fight Stipe, I think it proves a lot more. Fighting a fairly one-dimensional fighter fresh off of knee surgery. I don’t know, I believe beating Stipe says more at this point”

Jon Jones has remained out of action for more than two years with his last outing coming in February 2020. He was believed to be challenging the heavyweight champion but is now expected to fight Miocic in his return.

  1. First let me say if Jon Jones is on his game at heavy or lt heavy and he always is there is no one who can beat him, he has so many tools in his tool box and he is refining them all the time. Second,everyone sounds like they are at middle school with all the bullshit talking there is, just fuckin fight it out , have Dana draw up the contracts, if ur unhappy with the way someone handled a situation sign on the line (simple)..
