UFC Light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been lighting up Twitter recently as he continues to trash-talk just about everybody who comes up on his radar.

Two former-middleweight champions Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman had both called Jones ‘beatable’ prior to their light-heavyweight debuts in recent times, and as such, this weekend ‘Bones’ has been making them both eat their words after failing to make an impact in their divisional debuts.

“Before you guys come to my weight class and start talking shit, make sure you can get past a few of my contenders first #welcome,” Jones wrote on Instagram.

As for Dominick Reyes, the man who defeated Weidman by KO on Friday night, Jones made him aware that he wasn’t concerned in the slightest.

“Many have talk shit, all have fallen,” Jones stated. “You will do the same.”

Recently there’s been talk that Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson could be on his way back to the UFC, but though he’s on friendly terms with him, that hasn’t stopped Jones from warning him about stepping in his direction.

“You better make sure you have that cardio together big fella @Anthony_Rumble,” Jones wrote. “We’ve always been cool but I’ll be more than happy to choke you out if that’s what you’re looking for.”

Jones main verbal sparring of late though has been Israel Adesanya, although it seems Jones feels he’s already won that battle.

“Dude kicked up his level of shit talking after his coach said I’m too mean. No need for me to engage anymore. Already won that one.”

Words aside though, who actually will Jones fight next?

According to the man himself, a much talked about move up to heavyweight could yet be on the cards.

“I should just wait for the winner of DC and Stipe? Let these light heavies figure out who’s going to present the best challenge,” Jones told one fan.

“Probably going to need a few months to pack on some muscle anyway.”
