Israel Adesanya reacts to Jon Jones arrest: ‘He’s gonna f—k up again, he can’t help it’

“Last Stylebender” weighs in on Jon Jones’ recent arrest and charges.

Israel Adesanya does not have much faith in Jon Jones’ ability to rehabilitate.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight champion addressed Jones’ recent arrest (see the mugshot here) on social media. Jones — a former UFC Light Heavyweight champion and arguably the greatest mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter in history — was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sept. 24, 2021. He was charged with misdemeanor battery domestic violence, as well as injuring and tampering with a vehicle.

“I’m sure y’all will give him ‘one more chance’ lol,” Adesanya tweeted on Tuesday. “I swear I said he’s gonna f—k up again, he can’t help it. Now here we are. I’ve made mistakes in my time, I learn from them. I don’t think this is the first time this has happened in his house.”

New details from the Jones’ police report indicate that his fiancee, Jessie Moses, was found at Caesars Palace with blood “around her lips, chin and all over her sweatshirt” along with a swollen lower lip and “seemed scared to even talk about” Jones.

Adesanya and Jones’ personal feud dates back years. Fans once had hoped for a champion vs. champion clash between Adesanya and Jones.
