Jon Jones

The rivalry between Jon Jones has taken a rather ugly turn with both the fighters going back and forth on social media on several occasions. Jon Jones trashed Israel Adesanya after his win over Paulo Costa at UFC 253 and called out the Middleweight Champion with discomforting remarks. Earlier today, Jon Jones once again took to Twitter and once again took a dig at the undefeated fighter.

Israel Adesanya has repeatedly maintained that he wants some time as a Middleweight before he takes on Jon Jones. With significant improvements in his last few fights, Adesanya will look to be at his absolute best when and if he takes on arguably the greatest mixed martial artist of all time Jon Jones.

Earlier today, Israel Adesanya’s coach Eugene also mentioned Jones and what a match-up like that against Israel Adesanya might look like. Jones targeted Adesanya for waiting on the Jared Cannonier fight instead of fighting him.

Jon Jones did not stop here as he rained down on Paulo Costa for showboating in front of the camera rather than fighting. Jones stated that Costa just stood there in front of an elite kickboxer like Israel Adesanya and asked her critics to not compare him to someone who hasn’t proven anything inside the octagon. Paulo Costa had a huge opportunity ahead of him and a victory over Israel Adesanya could have plummeted him to a new height in the world of mixed martial arts. However, Adesanya triumphed over Costa with a stoppage win in the second round of the fight.

Should Israel Adesanya fight Jon Jones next?

Israel Adesanya has maintained that he wants to defend his Middleweight title a couple more times before moving to the light heavyweight division. With multiple interesting match-ups ahead of him in the form of Darren Till, a rematch with Robert Whittaker, and a choice fight with Jared Cannonier, it remains to be seen what lies ahead for the undefeated king of the Middleweight division.

Jones is a different caliber fighter than the ones that Israel Adesanya has ever faced inside the UFC octagon. Other than being a seasoned wrestler and a lethal striker, Jon Jones is a natural light-heavyweight who has bulked up considerably ahead of his move to the heavyweight division. While it’s not a stylistic match-up suited to both the fighter, Jon Jones will likely have an upper edge over Israel Adesanya owing to his world-class ground game.
