UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones received word that Chris Weidman mentioned his name in passing when discussing a “dream” main event if the Octagon invades Madison Square Garden.
Jones took to Twitter to reply to the idea, saying “I would still have to spank him (though).”
Well, Weidman, the reigning UFC middleweight champion, responded to that “call-out” in his own way on the social media site Thursday:
@JonnyBones you were right all he way up until the end lol. You got no chance Jonnnnnnyyy!!!

The two are set to collide this May on the same card, as Jones defends his belt against Anthony Johnson and Weidman does the same vs. Vitor Belfort.
