Assumed UFC Heavyweight contender Jon Jones has taken to Twitter once again to court controversy. Reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Blachowicz has said recently that he’d like to fight Jones, and ‘Bones’ has responded.
‘Hey Jan, how about you build your own legacy without talking s**t about me,’ Jones wrote on Twitter. ‘Go out, win 10 world titles and then parade yourself as some unbelievable fighter. Someone I ran away from. Just another option for you.’
‘I was so afraid of Jan that I went after Francis and Stipe, legendary polish tales,’ Jones then added.
Jon Jones vs Jan Blachowicz
‘Jon Jones is somewhere out there and I believe I will have the opportunity to fight him in the future,’ Blachowicz recently said onÂ Just Scrap Radio via BJPENN.com. ‘IÂ think everybody would like to fight against him. We will see about the future.”
“He promised me this fight” Blachowicz continued. “But I don’t want to talk about Jon Jones because it is boring for me. But, he promised me the fight after I knocked out Corey Anderson. I believe in the future somehow we will make the fight.’
At this point it is still expected that Jon Jones will be going up to the Heavyweight division to face Francis Ngannou. That fight is being touted, however the very public dispute over pay might be hampering the confirmation of the mega-bout.
