Jon Jones, Alexander Gustafsson Engage In Twitter Battle

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is currently rehabbing his injured toe and traveling around Russia. However, that doesn’t mean he is ignoring his duties as the UFC champion – which means he remains in talks with his contenders via Twitter.

Alexander Gustafsson is one of those contenders, and sent out a message to Jones that stated, “Its on (Jones) cant wait to get in that cage with YOU!!!”

Jones, one to never back down, replied with “Fighting me is not good for your image FYI.” It didn’t take “The Mauler” long to answer back, firing off “(Jones) if you think of what is good for your image, maybe you should continue to fight 185ers??”

The last two challengers to Jones’ title were Chael Sonnen and Vitor Belfort. Sonnen has moved to light heavyweight, while Belfort went back to middleweight after the championship match.

Depending on his recovery, Jones could either fight Gustafsson or Lyoto Machida, or the two contenders could square off.
