Jones, Tate Trade Words via Twitter

Jon Jones sparred with another fighter this week — except it was not in an Octagon, but on Twitter, with words instead of fists, and he wasn’t fighting a light heavyweight.

As reported by Bloody Elbow, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and retired MMA star Miesha Tate recently appeared on MMA on SiriusXM. When discussing Jones — who had his license revoked by the California State Athletic Commission for a failed drug test from last summer — Tate said that she was over Jones and his story.

That led to a tweeted response from Jones, calling Tate a “quitter”, referring to Tate’s retirement immediately following her loss at UFC 205 in November 2016. It turned into a trading of words via the social media platform.

Jones still awaits a disciplinary measure from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Jones faces a suspension of up to four years.
