The rivalry between Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones started a couple of years ago.
There was even a time when Jon Jones was ready to fight Adesanya at light heavyweight.
However, Adesanya said he was not ready to take on Jon Jones at that point of his career.
Well, the rivalry between the two UFC legend still exists. And it is obvious from the recent verbal altercation between Jon Jones and Israel Adesanya.
After Adesanya's last fight against Jared Cannonier, Jon Jones tweeted: "Bro, serious question. How does Commission allow this dude to compete with those long-a** nails?"
We recently saw Sean O'Malley vs Pedro Munhoz fight getting stopped due to an eyepoke. So it's certainly a concern that the commission is allowing Adesanya to fight with the nails.
It should also be noted that Israel Adesanya vs Jared Cannonier was also stopped midfight after Adesany eyepoked Cannonier.
Israel Adesanya did respond to Jon Jones' tweet during his post fight press conference and he denied to give any attention to Jones.
