Israel Adesanya calls Jon Jones a coward 

Adesanya (20-0) is one of the best martial artists in the world. He is also an extremely outgoing person who never backs away from a troll. ‘The Last Stylebender’ is observing quarantine for two weeks, he finds himself with a lot of free time and a worthy target in Jon Jones

Most recently, Adesanya replied to an image that read, “(Cormier) is going to have to come and get me,” Jones said. “He talked all that trash- I’m going to make him cut that weight.”

To which ‘The last Style Bender’ replied, “Ultimate b**ch move. I’d never ask you to come to 185. I just go up and slay ‘em. Also tested positive when he fought DC. A coward you is.”

The war of words between the two champions might have started off as banter. However, it has crossed lines off late with Jones speaking about Adensanya’s father. And Israel bringing into the conversation Jon Jones’ late mother. 

Israel’s latest title defense reportedly brought in around 700,000 PPV buys which all but proves that he is a bonafide star. Jones has proven himself time and time again and is without a doubt one of the biggest stars in the UFC. 

Both men have admitted to wanting to fight each other. A potential fight would definitely bring in a lot of money for the promotion and the athletes as well. However, a potential fight is only a dream at this point for MMA fans as no concrete reports have surfaced regarding the fight.
