Jon Jones: Israel Adesanya ‘will have land and be beaten to death’ if we really fight

Jon Jones It has been said that a lot of people will beat him in his career, but only a few pairs have really come close, according to the judges who scored his matches.

While Jones has given his opponent a lot of credit for pushing him to the brink, the former UFC light heavyweight champion has never been Israel Adesanya give him problems if they really fight.

For two years, it was the super battle everyone was talking about, but after Adesanya fell Jan Blachowicz In his bid to become a two-category UFC champion, Jones watched everything he needed to see to know how that fight was going to turn out for him.

“It’s been a really long time since I’ve fought someone with such a low level of struggle,” Jones said in a late-night Q&A session on Twitter. “He will take the earth and beat him to death.”

Grappling literally ruined Adesanya’s chances of beating Blachowicz that night and ironically, powerhouse Poland suffered the same fate in the next match when he fell first. Glover Teixeira in UFC 267 in October.

That is why Jones also had a sarcastic shot at him after it was suggested that he left the £205 weight class only as a real threat as Blachowicz rose to the top. charts.

“I was terrified Jan,” Jones wrote. “Have to wait for him to come out. I guess the strategy worked. ”

The impromptu social media session with Jones really started when he posted an image that showed him the most wins in title fights for anyone in UFC history.

In planning his return to heavyweight in 2022, Jones was hoping to add even more accolades to his already impressive resume.

“God willing, I’ll put this bar so high that no one can touch it,” Jones said. “At least not in my life.”

Of course that statement was met with some criticism as Jones missed out on large parts of the peak of his career due to problems both inside and outside of dubbing.

From suspensions for doping offenses to multiple arrests over the years, Jones has spent a lot of time out of the cage when he could have competed and has the ability to put himself in a position no one can touch. on his record.

That said, Jones disagrees with the notion that he has somehow soiled his legacy of performances because he is still widely regarded as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. despite the long periods in which he was unable to play.

“There are no guarantees for my guy,” Jones said. “Even with years of inactivity, I was able to hit some pretty outstanding records that I still hold to this day. And the story is far from over, I have a lot of victories to do.”

Jones has finally addressed his financial past and future with the UFC, which has been arguably the biggest hindering factor from his return to action after he relinquished the light heavyweight title in 2015. 2020.

Jones has argued that he’s worth a lot more to the UFC than the organization has recently paid him, which is why he’s trying to negotiate for a much larger sum when fight the future heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou was proposed to him.

Jones and the UFC president White Dana has gone back and forth through a series of interviews and social media posts and so far there is no evidence that the two sides have actually worked out a new deal as the 34-year-old New Yorker is ready to re-enter. fight.

However, Jones does not blame White or the UFC for what he was paid in the past as he admits he was ill-equipped at that stage of his career to truly understand his worth. .

“It’s really not robbery if you let someone do it,” Jones said of his salary with the UFC in the past. “I wasn’t equipped for the position I was holding.” Jon Jones: Israel Adesanya ‘will have land and be beaten to death’ if we really fight
