Jon Jones Erupts In Explosive Outburst At Israel Adesanya After Latest Social Media Spat
| Last updated
Jon Jones has launched an incredible attack on fierce rival Israel Adesanya after their heated social media spat hit boiling point.
The 30-year-old Adesanya trolled the UFC legend, 32, on Twitter after poking fun at him over his past controversies with failed drug tests.
And Jones has ruthlessly slammed the 'Last Stylebender' and told him to tell his "kids how I made my first million at age 23."
'Bones' tweeted: "Be sure to tell your kids how I made my first million at age 23, let them know I accomplish records you never came close to. Let them know you had the chance to fight me but you didn't want to get [Floyd] Mayweather'd and decided to make an excuse. Bro I'm done replying to you."
UFC light heavyweight champ Jones, who last fought at UFC 239 against Thiago Santos in July, also told Adesanya that he is done replying to him until he signs a deal to fight in 2021.
"Bro ur gaining some popularity, I've seen so many popular fighters come and go over these years," he tweeted.
"Statistically we're nowhere on the same level, I'm going to start treating you that way. You get no more responses out of me until 2021, I'll be interested to hear your excuse then."
When a fight fan told Jones not to be triggered by Adesanya and said it was only 'banter,' the future UFC Hall of Famer responded: "Lol triggered? I've been seeing that same meme for like six years now.
"These fighters can't criticize my actual artwork so they attacked my personal life. The only thing that's annoying is the lack of originality."
Jones' rival wasted no time in responding to him on social media by sending a simple message: "Lol...ok BoOmer."
Adesanya tweeted a photo of Dave Chappelle's Tyrone Biggums -- a crack addict character in the hit Chappelle's Show -- and the meme was captioned: "Telling my future kids this was Jon Jones."
The UFC star also tweeted: "Already had one in the chamber from last week if that boy wanna say sumn' stupid. I got full clips double parked!! #deadpool #mememajesty."
Jones previously called out the UFC middleweight champ and mocked him on social media for his love of anime.
The 'Last Stylebender' fired back at the light heavyweight champ and argued that he doesn't "understand the culture of the internet."
