Israel Adesanya: Jon Jones can't F@$% with me on anything
The Next Big Thing Israel Adesanya mused about defeating light heavyweight Jon Jones, but 'Bones' was not impressed.
By the time this kid gets his confidence together I’ll probably already be in the heavyweight division. I don’t need to wait till 2021 to start believing in myself https://t.co/PE16eSVl9i— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) October 7, 2019
Now dring an appearance on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show, Adesanya, too, is not impressed.
“My confidence? Get my f***ing nuts out of your mouth, bruh," said Adesanya, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. "This guy obviously is trying to force my hand. He’s trying to force my hand and I’m not stupid. It’s not about I’m not confident. Trust me, I will f*** this motherf***er up when I fight him. I just have to do what I have to do. I have to defend my belt. I just defended my belt and I am the new unified king. There’s three more killers, four more killers I have to f*** up at middleweight first. And then, then I will move up in weight, then I’ll jump up and f*** this guy.”
“I can’t wait. I plan everything from the jump. I showed everyone, this is what I am going to do and this is how I am going to do it. And I already said Raiders Stadium, Las Vegas, 2021. And he’s f***ing contradicting himself. ‘Oh I think I’m alright here, I’m not going to move up to heavyweight,’ this and that. ‘Why do I have to move up to heavyweight? I don’t want to fight DC at heavyweight. Now DC is retiring, okay I might move up to heavyweight.’
“He’s just contradicting himself. He’s just trying to take my moment. You can’t even f** with me right now, dude. Look at me, Ariel! Who the f*** is the new face of UFC? Do you think Jon Jones can ever pull some s*** like that? I saw him with that f***ing bulls** ass Nelly entrance when he did the electric slide or some sh*t. Bruh, this ain’t the same person. You can’t f*** with me on anything.”
“He is jealous. He sees the freshman that is f***ing taking all the shine. He sees the guy that’s the f***ing new dog in the yard. And they’re intimidated, they’re jealous and they don’t know how to act.
“He’s always been a fan and he’s still a fan. I know he’s a fan but he’s always just trying to do what he does and I’m like, ‘Just wait your turn.’ I am not going to be one of these guys who doesn’t defend his belt. I am going to defend my belt actively. I am not going to be like him and fight twice a year. They’re all trying to copy my s*** so let me just defend my belt, then I will move up and I’ll come f*** him up.”
And the hype kept growing on the social network.
Sometimes I feel like a vampire when I look at photos of myself with all the different UFC champions over the years. I’ve seen so many come and go— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) October 8, 2019
All I hear is “I’m a bitch, I dance better than Jones.” Oh and some weird shit about big American balls in your mouth. https://t.co/aLNjHVBsTF— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) October 8, 2019
