UFC superstars Miesha Tate and Jon Jones have been going at it over social media as of late. Now the former women’s UFC bantamweight champion has come forward with a heated response for “Bones” Jones.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has had a controversial career. The fighter has been stripped of his UFC title a record setting total of three times, while having failed multiple drug tests and having had multiple run ins with the law. Most recently, Jones had his CSAC hearing for his UFC 214 drug test failure.
The fighter was fined the maximum total of $200,000 and has had his fighting license suspended. Since then, Miesha Tate has come forward with a scathing reaction to the news.
As previously reported, Miesha Tate had the following to say on the matter.
“I don’t really care at this point if he comes back. Because I’ve lost the motivation and the interest and the faith that I have in Jon Jones has been lost.”
“Now, maybe in three or four years, if he gets a great suspension and gets the book thrown at him. And he really does make those changes, maybe he has a chance at restoring that.”
“But, at this point I just don’t care anymore. I’m over Jon Jones, I’m done with it. I don’t want to hear his sob story. I felt sorry the first and second time, he kind of had me.”
“But, it’s like fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, I mean come on. Am I waiting for a fourth now?”
“I just don’t, I’m over it.”
“I wish and I hope that it does change Jon Jones. And I hope. But, I’m also not invested in Jon Jones anymore. I’m kind of checked out at this point.”
“It’s just been too many times, too many instances, and I’ve heard this story, one, two, three, four, five times already.”
“So, it’s like unless he shows me something different than just saying, ‘I’m a changed man’, he’s got to do a lot more to gain me back as a fan, and to care to see him compete again.”
“I just don’t want to be let down again.”
Jon Jones has since come forward with a response to Miesha Tate’s criticism over Twitter.
“@MieshaTate I don’t quit when things get tough for me, I get stronger. You just wait and see, maybe you’ll even find motivation in it. Sucks I lost you as a fan. Enjoy retirement sister”
