UFC Champion Jon Jones Had Some Bold Words For Israel Adesanya
By Mike Parrott
Current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Jon Jones has had his say about Middleweight Champions, Israel Adesanya with their feud continuing on.
Jon Jones is set to defend his Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 247 in February 2020. And Israel Adesanya is set to defend his Middleweight Champion at UFC 248.
However, both of them won't stop talking about each other and about a potential bout between the both of them.
Jones was asked about Adesanya and had this to say about a potential fight:

"If Israel wanted to fight me, that would be a gigantic fight for the sport. Umm, a lot of people talk about or ask 'why are you forcing Israel to go to light heavyweight, you never went to heavyweight'. There is like a gigantic jump between me and the heavyweights. Me and Izzy, we are only 15-20 pounds apart." Jon Jones said.
"So if Izzy really wanted to fight me, he would do it. Izzy's a pussy, and there is really no way around it. So, and as far as him being in my head with the internet stuff.. It is just fun. Its a lot of fun. The fans enjoy it when we chirp back and forth and I like to keep the people excited. So that's all that is about. He's not in my head. He's not in my head at all actually. I'm liking the energy that he brings to the sport. And I am liking him being a part of it."
Jones and Adesanya might happen soon later in 2020 but both of them have mandatory title defences before this.
