Israel Adesanya Hits Back At Jon Jones Over His 'Slap' Comment

Israel Adesanya Hits Back At Jon Jones Over His 'Slap' Comment

Israel Adesanya has slammed UFC legend Jon Jones as a "suburban dad" after he mocked his love for anime.

The UFC middleweight champ, 30, has had a heated back-and-forth rivalry with Jones on social media in recent months.

But 'Bones' recently fired out a brutal dig at Adesanya after admitting that he is ready to "slap" the anime-loving UFC star.

Adesanya has wasted no time in responding to Jones by insisting that he is an "old man," despite the light heavyweight champ only being two years older than him.

"You have to understand the culture of the internet," the 'Last Stylebender' said.

"And [Jon Jones] doesn't. He's young [32] -- he's only, like, a year older than me -- but he's old.

"Like, he's like an old man. He's like a suburban dad, which he is actually.

"So he doesn't get it."

Jones previously teased that he would move up to heavyweight before Adesanya would compete at light heavyweight.

But his rival hit back by suggesting that he would be willing to climb up a weight division to "f**k this m**********r up when I fight him."

Adesanya's coach, Eugene Bareman, also called out Jones by saying that he needs his fighter more than his rival needs him.

Jones, who last fought against Thiago Santos at UFC 239 in July, has teased that he is only a "few weeks away" from his return to the octagon.

While 'Bones' has remained hush-hush about his next opponent, he has dropped hints on Twitter for who it could be.

And many fight fans are speculating that he will face Dominick Reyes or Corey Anderson.
