Jon Jones Responds To Anthony Johnson, Rest Of UFC 205-Pound Division


Jon Jones went off on a Twitter-tirade late Wednesday night, calling out Anthony Johnson and the rest of the UFC’s light heavyweight division.

Johnson is set to face Daniel Cormier for the title later this year and the two began media work for the December card recently. “Rumble” angered Jones with comments he made about the currently-sidelined former titleholder.

“AJ you calling my out of the cage problems amazing is almost hysterical,” Jones said. “Trying to shit on me doesn’t make you look anymore like a saint.”

In an interview with TSN, Johnson said that Jones’ outside-the-Octagon legal troubles are “amazing.”

Jones also said that he will “always be that ‘normal guy’ who worked your ass,” in response to Cormier calling him a “normal guy that did a lot of things in the past.”

Currently, Jones is scheduled to appear before the Nevada Athletic Commission later this month to discuss his suspension for a failed drug test in July.
