It appears that hopes of a future Jon
Jones
Israel
Adesanya
superfight went up in smoke at UFC
259
.

Adesanya’s bid to become a two-division champion failed on Saturday
night, as he dropped a unanimous decision to reigning 205-pound
king Jan
Blachowicz
in the evening’s headliner at the UFC Apex in Las
Vegas. Blachowicz took control of the contest in the championship
rounds through takedowns and top control to retain his title and
prevail once again despite being the underdog.

Naturally, Jones was an interested observer of the proceedings, and
he couldn’t resist taking a few shots at Adesanya on Twitter. The
two stars have gone back and forth in the media in recent months
regarding a potential fight, and Adesanya defeating Blachowicz
would have been the most obvious path to such a matchup.

Now, it appears that the dream is dead.

“Yeah, never mind, that’s not even worth my time,” Jones wrote on
Twitter. “If you ever wrote me talking s—t about Izzy, slap
yourself.”

In the meantime, Jones will continue to focus on his heavyweight
debut. The Jackson-Wink MMA standout is expected to face the winner
of the UFC 260 championship clash between Stipe
Miocic
and Francis
Ngannou
later this year.
