Jon Jones is the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and Adesanya says that Jones was a better fighter before the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) started testing him.
“I saw him live, he doesn’t have it,” Adesanya said when he appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show (via Harry Davies of Bloody Elbow). “He was great when he was fighting and there wasn’t USADA around, but now, the man needs to get back on the pictograms if he wants to be great again.”
The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion heard the comments made by the interim middleweight champion and responded to them via Twitter:
Style bender was asked a question about me and the first thing he could think of was my cakes at weigh ins --. Then went on to talk about how I’m built like a dorito with chopsticks. No comment needed.— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 8, 2019
A super fight could happen between the two title holders, which would most likely require Adesanya to jump up a weight class to light heavyweight.
