Israel Adesanya Fires Back At Jon Jones, Says He's Going To "F*ck Him Up"
Israel Adesanya claims he'll defend his UFC middleweight title before jumping up in weight and f*cking up Jon Jones.
Jones aimed a dig at Adesanya following his superb showing at UFC 243 where he defeated Robert Whittaker to become the undisputed UFC middleweight champion.
By the time this kid gets his confidence together I'll probably already be in the heavyweight division. I don't need to wait till 2021 to start believing in myself https://t.co/PE16eSVl9i

The UFC light-heavyweight king took to social media to question his confidence and his jab on Twitter didn't go down well with Adesanya who furiously hit back, saying that he intends to defend his 185lbs title. After that, he'll move up in weight and destroy Jones.
"You saw what I did this weekend?" Adesanya said on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show.
"My confidence? Get my f*cking nuts out of your mouth, bruh... This guy obviously is trying to force my hand. He's trying to force my hand and I'm not stupid. It's not about I'm not confident.
"Trust me, I will f*ck this motherf*cker up when I fight him. I just have to do what I have to do. I have to defend my belt. I just defended my belt and I am the new unified king.
"There's three more killers, four more killers I have to f*ck up at middleweight first. And then, then I will move up in weight, then I'll jump up and f*ck this guy [up]."
"I can't wait. I plan everything from the jump. I showed everyone, this is what I am going to do and this is how I am going to do it.
"And I already said Raiders Stadium, Las Vegas, 2021. And he's f*cking contradicting himself. 'Oh I think I'm alright here, I'm not going to move up to heavyweight,' this and that. 'Why do I have to move up to heavyweight? I don't want to fight DC at heavyweight. Now DC is retiring, okay I might move up to heavyweight.'
"He's just contradicting himself. He's just trying to take my moment. You can't even f*ck with me right now, dude. Look at me, Ariel! Who the f*ck is the new face of UFC?
"Do you think Jon Jones can ever pull some sh*t like that? I saw him with that f*cking bullsh*t ass Nelly entrance when he did the electric slide or some sh*t. Bruh, this ain't the same person. You can't f*ck with me on anything."

Adesanya, 30, believes Jones' attacks stems from jealously. He's now the hottest thing in the UFC and on the verge of super stardom.
"He is jealous," he added. "He sees the freshman that is f*cking taking all the shine. He sees the guy that's the f*cking new dog in the yard. And they're intimidated, they're jealous and they don't know how to act.
"He's always been a fan and he's still a fan. I know he's a fan but he's always just trying to do what he does and I'm like, 'Just wait your turn.'
"I am not going to be one of these guys who doesn't defend his belt. I am going to defend my belt actively. I am not going to be like him and fight twice a year. They're all trying to copy my sh*t so let me just defend my belt, then I will move up and I'll come f*ck him up."
A UFC super-fight between Jones and Adesanya has been mooted ever since the Nigerian-born Kiwi burst onto the scene and it appears they're on a collision course now to face one another in 2020/2021.
Jones is slated to return to the Octagon next year, having defended his belt against Anthony Smith and Thiago Santos in 2019.
Adesanya, meanwhile, is expected to make the first defence of his title versus unbeaten Brazilian challenger Paulo Costa.
