Jones and Adesanya have exchanged words in the past through interviews and over social media. The latest round of verbal warfare came on Wednesday.
Earlier this week, as Adesanya began doing his media rounds to promote his ufc 243 fight, he mentioned Jones a future opponent with hopes that they could clash as early as 2021 after he establishes himself as a dominant 185-pound champion.
Jones obviously caught wind of those comments, and he unleashed a series of messages blasting Adesanya for his perceived hubris regarding a potential fight between them.
Jones also took exception to past comments from Adesanya criticizing his most recent performance against Thiago Santos, which ended in a split-decision after five rounds.
With a title fight against Whittaker just days away, Adesanya understandably has a lot on his mind, but Jones just added a few more things to think about in those final hours as he prepares to compete at UFC 243.
