Jon Jones busted by Israel Adesanya for trying to delete ‘tampon’ tweet — ‘You never learn’

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, closed out his Easter Sunday with a fan Q&A on Twitter, which I guess is better than spending it on the streets of Albuquerque doing shots with the homeless.

From both the barrel and the bottle.

“Bones” also took the time to respond to a scathing tweet from longtime rival Israel Adesanya, who used the memorable “Hey pussy are you still there” quote from the Daniel Cormier “hot mic” interview Jones did on ESPN back in 2014 (watch it here).

Have a look:

Jones responded with a photo of Adesanya after “The Last Stylebender” was stiffened by Alex Pereira at “Glory of Heroes 7” back in 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The tweet and its “tampon” reference was soon deleted but hey, this is the internet and nothing is truly gone forever.

Despite their ongoing rivalry, don’t expect a “super fight” between these two until 2021.
