Smith and his family were recently the victims of a home invasion, but Smith fought off the invader and that person was eventually arrested by the authorities. Jones would issue a condescending statement to Smith via Twitter after the incident, which led to Smith calling Jones a “douchebag.”
Jones has since returned to address Smith, saying the following in a now deleted tweet (via MMA Fighting):
“Anthony, if you’re going to leave your garage door open all night, hurry up and buy the family a gun, some mace or something. A douchebag more like me could’ve completely had his way with you all night, that could’ve been bad for everyone.”
The light heavyweight champion also said the following in some follow up tweets:
