Jon Jones Warns Champ About ‘Talking S***’

UFC Star Jon Jones

Getty UFC superstar Jon Jones is one of the most decorated MMA fighters in history.

UFC superstar Jon Jones vacated his light heavyweight championship in 2020 so that he could pursue more lucrative fights in the heavyweight division in 2021. But that hasn’t kept the UFC’s new 205-pound champion Jan Blachowicz from repeatedly calling out Jones. After seeing Blachowicz’s most recent comments to RT Sports this week, Jones lashed out at the Polish powerhouse via social media.

Jones posted, “Hey Jan, how about you build your own legacy without talking s*** about me. Go out, win 10 world titles and then parade yourself as some unbelievable fighter.”

Jones doesn’t have 10 world titles himself, but he has accumulated 14 UFC title fight wins over his impressive career, and he’s considered by most pundits to be one of the most accomplished MMA fighters in history.

Jones sarcastically posted, “I was so afraid of Jan that I went after Francis and Stipe, legendary polish tales”.

Jones Wants UFC Gold At Heavyweight

Jones decided to move up to the heavyweight ranks to hopefully face whoever won the rematch at UFC 260 between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou. Ngannou knocked out Miocic in that fight, so now Jones wants to face Ngannou in a UFC superfight for the UFC’s coveted heavyweight championship.

There’s only one problem. Jones wants to be paid more for the fight than what he made being the UFC’s longtime light heavyweight champion and top pound-for-pound star.

Negotiations between Jones and the UFC to this point have been very public and not all encouraging for those hoping to see the fight, but Jones hasn’t let any of those things keep him from shredding Blachowicz about his latest callout.

Jones posted, “Hey whatever makes people feel good about themselves I guess”.

Jones vs. Blachowicz?

Jones, 33, hopes to face Ngannou next for UFC gold in the heavyweight division. Still, Blachowicz revealed this week that he’ll probably move up to the heavyweight ranks as well before the end of his career, so maybe Jones vs. Blachowicz eventually happens in that division.

As it stands now, Jones is holding out for the right price to face Ngannou, and Blachowicz is probably on his way to defending his light heavyweight title against Glover Teixeira next.

So both UFC stars should be tied up for a while.

Still, Jones has at least kept his eye on Blachowicz to the point that he was ready to lash out at him on Twitter over recent comments just about as soon as they surfaced in the media, so Poland’s second-ever UFC champion does seem to be doing something right if he’s hoping to keep the attention of Jones over the long haul.

Jones vs. Blachowicz probably isn’t on its way anytime soon, but the two will likely continue to battle it out through the media anyway.
