Israel Adesanya mocks Jon Jones in series of tweets following recent arrest

It’s no surprise to see that Israel Adesanya has made the most of Jon Jones’ recent arrest.

UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has took to social media to mock Jon Jones after his recent arrest.

The UFC light heavyweight champion Jones was arrested on Thursday morning for an aggravated DWI, firearm and other charges. It’s just one of the many problems with the law that the 32-year-old has found himself in over his decade long stint in the UFC.

The rivalry between them has been going on ever since Adesanya discussed moving up to 205-pounds, the division in which Jones has triumphed in for so many years. Following the news, it didn’t take long for Adesanya to start posting a number of tweets on social media directed at Jones, fueling the fire of the dislike between the two fighters.

Adesanya (19-0) recently defended his UFC middleweight title for the first time, defeating Yoel Romero in an uneventful fight at UFC 248 earlier this month. “The Last Stylebender” won the title against Robert Whittaker in October of last year. Adesanya has said multiple times he will be open to be moving up in weight to fight Jones in the future.
