Jones & Covington Battle On Twitter

Following Colby Covington attacking Jon Jones on a podcast, Jones decided to subtweet Covington following an altercation with Fabricio Wedum. Following an incident where the Brazilian threw a boomerang at Covington, Jones took to twitter to make light of it.

I despise racism , good job today @FabricioWerdum dude had the audacity to call you a “f****t” as he’s backing up on Facebook live.

The issue between Covington and Jones stems from when the two were roommates at Iowa Central Community College where they both won junior national titles as wrestlers, and Covington on an edition of Submission Radio expounded on his issues with Jones.

 “The guy was just a mess, man. He was getting into partying and all that bad stuff back then. He was just going down the wrong path, but he always tried to act like a saint, ‘oh, I’m into religion, I’m all about god,’ this and that.”

Jones, several hours after his initial tweet, decided to address what his former roommate said about him.

Covington decided to reply to Jones’ tweet storm with a meme featuring Jones partaking in illegal drug use, and claiming.

Using my name to stay relevant ? Don’t you have another drug test to fail or an octagon to hide under you loser?
