UFC star Jon Jones has made controversial claims about fellow fighters Conor McGregor andIsrael Adesanya in a brutal Twitter tirade of abuse
Jones's tweets became racially motivated when he criticised Adesanya's portrayal of an African man in comparison to McGregor's positive role in promoting Ireland.
He said: "McGregor came and made Ireland look like royalty. You came and made African men look soft. Get the f*** out of here."
His made his controversial views known when he and Adesanya got embroiled in a war of words on the social media site.
Jones instigated the feud when he said that Adesanya keeps talking about him but doesn’t want to fight.
This rattled Adesanya who responded by harshly by taking a shot at Jones’ deceased mother.
He also made a crude reference to Jones's criminal past, sharing pictures of his drug and DUI arrests.
At the end of it all Jones said he's tired of the trash-talk and told Adesanya to "sign the contract."
The feud between the pair has been heating up over the past year, but things reached boiling point since Adesanya’s win over Paulo Costa at UFC 253.
UFC boss Dana White is relishing a square-off between the pair and thinks a fight would be "massive."
He said: "That's the fight to make, 100 percent.
"I think that a fight between those two is massive."
The pair are both different weight classes so before any fight could happen Adesanya would have to move up from middleweight to face Jones at heavyweight.
