Jon Jones Reacts To Israel Adesanya’s Impressive Win Against Robert Whittaker At UFC 243
Before this weekend’s UFC 243 event, Israel Adensaya spoke with The Mac Life and claimed that he was going to work his way up to light heavyweight in a few years to face Jon Jones once he clears out the middleweight division.

“I wouldn’t say he’s the ultimate, but he’s definitely a boss on the game I want to play against,”. “Raider Stadium, Las Vegas, that’s where it’s going to happen. I decided in July when I was in Vegas.”
“Hmm, with the middleweight division, it’s getting stacked. I like Cannonier right now, [Paulo] Costa I have to take care of, and a few others, I’m saying 2021 [vs Jones]. I’m fighting. Probably early, yeah. The way I fight, six fights in 18 months, obviously I had a long break. It’s harder when you become champion, so much weight to move fast, yeah, we’ll see what happens.”
Jones was clearly annoyed by Adesanya’s cockiness and responded on Twitter.
Adesanya would later destroy Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 with AN absolutely devastating second round KO to become the undisputed UFC middleweight champion.
Jones went on to poke Adesanya, who he claims doesn’t have the confidence to fight him yet.
Hopefully Dana White convinces Adesanya to fight Jon Jones sooner than later because that would be an amazing fight.
