Video: Jon Jones Opens Up For The First Time About The Years Of Angry Tweets

As a candidate for greatest UFC competitor of all time and a repeat drug test failure, Jon Jones has scored a mass of fans and enemies during his tenure with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. “Bones” Jones was stripped of his UFC light heavyweight title back in 2015 after being involved in a hit-and-run incident. Then in 2016, the fighter failed a drug test for clomiphene. As a result, Jones was suspended for a year.

Coming back from his suspension, Jones faced off against heated rival and reigning champion Daniel Cormier. The fighter scored a title earning, knockout victory over Cormier, but the win would be short lived. Jon Jones failed his drug test for UFC 214. As a result, Cormier is once again the light heavyweight champion of the UFC and his UFC 214 loss was overturned to a no contest.

All of that in mind, Jones has received quite a bit of heat from fight fans over the years. Some fans often vocalize their opinions on the fighter through social media. For @Jon Jones, this has been an interesting and confusing experience.

The former UFC champion known as Jon Jones does not actually use a Twitter handle of his first and last name. Rather, the fighter can be found under @JonnyBones.

@JonJones, the game developer and author, has been taking a lot of the heat for the former champion without any clue as to why he was receiving so many hateful messages. Now that the developer has caught on to the situation, he has taken a moment to parody the situation with MMA Junkie. Check out the video below.
