A statement by Israel Adesanya after beating Paulo Borrachinha by knockout at UFC 253 aroused Jon Jones’ ire. In the press conference after the event, the UFC middleweight champion said, when asked if he intends to dominate the category as Anderson Silva, his great idol did, and then seek a new belt in the light heavyweights, that the Brazilian he was the king of the middleweight, going to concerts a few times in the top division, and took the opportunity to make it clear that he will go after Jones after talking to his coach, Eugene Bareman.

– Anderson Silva dominated middleweight, and gave some shows at middleweight. I want to end Jon Jones, and I will. But I have to talk to Eugene, because even he said a few things about Stipe Miocic. But yes. Everything is open. The more money the better!
Jon Jones, who has been preparing to move up to the UFC heavyweights, reproduced part of Adesanya’s interview and posted the following comment on his Instagram account.
– But what? Have you been in the ring more than 100 times and still not ready ?! You have the advantage of youth and four times more fighting experience. The truth is that you are already my coward. You love being undefeated, and you’ve seen what happened to everyone else. Mentioning my name increases your quote, and you know it. You don’t really want to fight me. I’m not just going to stand around and fight kickboxing with you. I’ve been preparing for the heavyweights. Now, I would literally rip one of your arms off.
