Smith and his family were recently the victims of a home invasion, but Smith fought the invader off and said person was arrested by the authorities.
Jones, upon hearing of the home invasion, would post the following on Twitter:
Glad Anthony is OK, no way dude would have left my house walking https://t.co/U6wSr8KmA8— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 7, 2020
The light heavyweight contender didn’t take too kindly to what Jones said and would blast Jones during his Sirius XM radio show.
“What a perfect moment to flex, Jon, in the middle of a disaster like that in my home,” Smith said (via Damon Martin of MMA Fighting). “What a perfect opportunity to flex at how g*ddamn cool you are. Just when you thought ‘that’s pretty admirable of Jon Jones to reach out and well-wish me,’ and then as you continue reading you’re like ‘oh that’s right, I forgot you’re still a f*cking douchebag.’ It’s just his opportunity to insert himself and make sure everybody knows how cool and bad ass he is. Just for a second I thought you were human and you had a soul and then I realized yo, you’re still the same piece of sh*t you’ve always been. ... You’re such a douchebag.”
Since Smith does sit at #3 in the UFC Light Heavyweight Division rankings, it means the two could have another chance to settle their differences in the Octagon.
