Israel Adesanya is Nothing for Jon Jones

UFCs roster regularly employs social media to engage in verbal abuse & challenge each other to battles, providing UFC President Dana White an ample selection of fighting opportunities. Supporters have recently witnessed Champion Jon Jones verbally assault Israel Adesanya & Jan Blachowics, informing both competitors that they’re not viable opponents for becoming a Two-Division Champion. Few have accomplished this task & now with analysts questioning if Jon Jones is the GOAT, the American MMA fighter is looking towards a second championship. Maintaining two belts consecutively would cement Jones as the UFCs Greatest of All Time and not Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Twitter discussions were maintained between Jon Jones, Israel Adesanya, and Jan Blachowics. It was Blachowics that prominently engaged in verbally assaulting the Light Heavyweight Champion, with Jones being forced to defend himself. It prompted Jones to discuss criticism from former rivals like Daniel Cormier & inform Blachowics that his presence in the octagon is pointless.

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones mentioned to Jan Blachowics that before turning twenty-five, he’d begun earning millions & has accumulated a wealth most in the Ultimate Fighting Championship haven’t ascertained. Jones evoked that a “Super Fight” against Israel Adesanya or Jan Blachowics wouldn’t benefit his career long-term. Jon is the divisional champ & has defended his belt multiple times while amassing monetary wealth that can sustain a lifetime. Money won’t sway Jon’s decision to compete.

Heavyweight Division for Jones

Stripe Miocic is the opponent Jon Jones wants to compete against at his next Pay-Per-View. Discussions regarding these two men battling in the octagon have been considered on several previous occasions. Jones competing against Stripe Miocic means moving up to the Heavyweight division. It should be clarified that Jon Jones hasn’t competed since the UFC entered their pandemic era, with his last PPV being in February 2020. Dominik Reyes was defeated horribly by Jon Jones at UFC 247 and marked Jones 11th title defence of the UFC Light Heavyweight Belt.

Supporters of the Ultimate Fighting Championship have clamoured for Jon Jones to return before 2021. Champions in the UFC are required to defend their title once-per-year, with Jones having accomplished that requirement in February 2020. Most analysts believe he’ll return by January to February in 2021, prolonging his run as champion.
