Aspinall Fires Shots
A war of words has erupted online between UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones and fellow fighter Tom Aspinall. The highly anticipated matchup between Jones and Stipe Miocic at UFC 295 was cancelled when Jones suffered a torn pectoral tendon, leading to the cancellation of the bout. This twist of fate opened the door for Tom Aspinall, who seized the opportunity and claimed the interim gold by delivering a stunning first-round knockout against Sergei Pavlovich.
Tom Aspinall has recently stirred the pot by publicly calling on the UFC to abandon its original matchup between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. The interim UFC heavyweight champion didn’t hold back, using his Twitter account to highlight Miocic’s perceived lack of activity in a series of posts. Aspinall’s outspoken stance adds an interesting twist to the ongoing narrative within the UFC‘s heavyweight division.
‘’Jon you’re letting your ego run wild here mate. I’m not downplaying you’re résumé, it’s incredible. Far superior to mine. You are known as the best fighter ever, and that’s EXACTLY why I want to beat you. Surely you can understand that?’’
Jones Fired Back
Shortly after many callouts and meme made by the interim champion, Bones responded by saying;
‘’I mean, it doesn’t really work like that. I was a champion when I was 23 years old, you can’t show up at age 30 pretending like you’ve been chasing me your whole life. I have no clue who 90% of his résumé is, meanwhile, I’ve been highlighting UFC events my entire career.’’
Boss Dana White has affirmed the UFC‘s commitment to delivering the long-awaited legacy matchup between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. With the focus shifting towards Jones vs. Miocic, Aspinall may now find himself at a crossroads, facing the decision to defend his interim title or accept a period of inactivity beyond his preferences.
As the verbal sparring continues between Jon Jones and Tom Aspinall, the MMA community eagerly awaits developments in this heated exchange, wondering if it will translate into a future showdown inside the octagon.
