“He Should Have Stayed Inside”- Israel Adesanya Taunts Jon Jones

Israel Adesanya

Jon Jones was recently arrested for DWI and negligent use of firearms. Although he was released, the light heavyweight champion did not get away without criticism. Recently, fighters like Israel Adesanya and Dominick Reyes blasted Jones on social media for his behavior.

Jones is one of the most talented athletes in mixed martial arts history. Although there were some close calls, to date, nobody has successfully dethroned the champion. His only loss came by a disqualification. Throughout his career, Jones has defeated legends as well as new prospects in the sport.

With so many things to boast about, it is easy to think that Jones is living the perfect life. Well, that is not the case with him. Like all human beings, Jones is flawed. He found himself in trouble not once, not twice but multiple times.

From doping violations to crashing into a pregnant woman, Jones’ infractions with the law are many. His most recent encounter with the police came around 1 a.m. on Thursday. ‘Bones’ was found driving under the influence of alcohol and recklessly firing shots from his handgun.

While most of their social media battles were back and forth, Jones’ latest confrontation gave ‘Izzy’ the upper hand. The middleweight champion posted a series of memes on his Twitter.
