Jon Jones Says Proposed Israel Adesanya Superfight is Dead Already

Last updated

Now UFC heavyweight Jon Jones has stated that the once proposed superfight with Israel Adesanya no longer interests him. The former Light Heavyweight king has been active on social media since Adesanya lost to Jan Blachowicz this past weekend at UFC 259.

Israel Adesanya’s Head Coach Eugene Bareman recently said in an interview with Submission Radio that the superfight would still make sense from a business standpoint. ‘Jon Jones is a businessman,’ Bareman said. “Jones understands how the pay-per-view market works and he understands where the money is, and that’s why this fight doesn’t fizzle away.”

‘Because at the end of the day, if it makes money, it makes sense” Bareman continued. “And Jon knows who the biggest star in the sport is at the moment and who can get him paid the most. That is why the fight won’t fizzle out.”

Jon Jones however does not agree with this assessment. ‘Give it up coach,’ Jones replied on Twitter. ‘We’ve all seen your cards, your boy has almost no take down defense or offense off his back. Now you’re just being a cloud trout, if you would honestly send him in there against a 260 pound wrestler after that last performance, you don’t care about his well being.’
