In his first interview since the unanimous decision defeat, Adesanya spoke with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani this week about Jones.
In the interview, “The Last Stylebender” confirmed that he still envisions a fight with Jones down the line. He also took shots at Jones, saying Bones is “fake” and that it wouldn’t “take long before [Jones] f***s his life up again”
On Thursday, the former light heavyweight champion reacted to Adesanya via Twitter. Jones started by sharing a GIF with a quote from The Last Stylebender’s interview: “It’s deeper than fighting now.”
“Ariel Helwani asked him one question about me, Izzy went on to give a seven minute response,” Jones continued. “I love it when opponents realize they can’t hold my jockstrap and default to the ‘Jon Jones is fake’ defense.”
“Literally once a month he does an interview talking about me, literally once a month,” Bones wrote. “It’s like half his brand is wrapped up in if he will fight Jon Jones or not.
Jones then tweeted, “The fact that he is actually trying to keep this beef going is hilarious.”
With Adesanya losing to Blachowicz, specifically because he was out-grappled by the bigger man, “Bones” doesn’t believe The Last Stylebender could handle his size inside the Octagon.
“This dude backed himself into a corner with his mouth and is actually trying to keep the wolf tickets selling,” he continued. “Only a real anime fan could actually see Izzy somehow defeating me at 245 pounds.”
“Dudes claiming to be the best MMA fighter ever, with 1/3 of an MMA game, arrogance at its finest, I swear it will make you blind,” Bones wrote.
