    Adesanya is, of course, referring to Jones’ previous suspension tied to his past cocaine usage. Unrelenting, “The Last Stylebender” continued his tirade on the public perception of Jones.

    Jones (24-1, 1 NC) is the current record holder for youngest champion at UFC history. Claiming gold against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua when he was just 23 years old in 2011, Jones’ résumé is nearly incomparable. Adesanya (17-0), who claimed his first title at 29, went from UFC newcomer to champion in just 14 months, making him one of the few fighters on the roster who can match Jones’ meteoric rise.

    So, recognizing he’s still fairly new to MMA, Adesanya attributes Jones’ callout as more of a calculated move to face him before he reached his full potential rather than a legitimate rivalry.

    Shaking off Jones’ criticism for seemingly struggling against Gastelum, a visibly annoyed Adesanya shifted gears back to his division. Declaring he had unfinished business at 185-pounds before he could play around at 205-pounds, including a title unification bout against injured champion Robert Whittaker later this year, Adesanya laid down one final warning.

    Well I'd rather be someone that has his life together than a guy that always gets in trouble. So I know I would prefer to be Israel (not the country though) than Jones.

    Sounds like fake beef.

    Why would Jones be jealous?

    He has a superior resume, greater accolades, more money and can kill anyone on the ufc roster including Izzy.

    Why is Jones calling this kid out ? Adesanya is too small to fight jones, he's not even big for a MW. It's like lately......he's been calling out guys that he knows will be an easy fight for him. Calling out Brock and a undersized MW

    I like Israel but he should focus on Whittaker first.

    Jones love to mess with green middleweight. Why didn't he say anything about N'gannou or Stipe ?

    I mean.. Youngest UFC champion and widely regarded as the greatest talent to ever do it, yet he wishes to be Israel Adesanya?

    Even Jones’ biggest detractors must recognise that he would wreck Israel and finish him with whatever he chooses. Props on the interim title, Izzy, but c’mon, even your own mother doesn’t believe this shit.

    I think Dana encouraged him to go the Conor route to SUPERSTARDOM!!! which involves being a bit delusional.

    I remember him acting offended when people said he's the next Jon Jones. Pfft!

    Someone needs to pull this kid aside and get his head straight. His win was great, but he's really gotta slow his roll.
