Jon Jones has deleted his controversial tweet to Tony Ferguson after “El Cucuy” called him out.

Ferguson took to social media and called out Jones saying he will beat him as he did in college.

“Lot Of Shit Talk @JonnyBones You Wanna Play Again Like We Did In College? I Bumped Up Two Weight Classes & I’ll Do It Again Growth. You Wanna Play Chess I’ll Be Your Huckleberry. Got You In 2 Neanderthal, Talked To Your Pops He Knows Who’s Champ. #Anklepick #DavidVSGoliath,” Ferguson wrote.

Jon Jones then was not impressed and responded with a very controversial tweet that asked Ferguson if he was having suicidal thoughts again.

“Wait, when did this beef start!? I thought we were cool!! You over there feeling suicidal Tony?” Jones responded in a now-deleted tweet.

The UFC’s light heavyweight champion was then asked on social media about the two’s beef which even he was confused about it. Jones said he thought he and Tony Ferguson were cool.

“Lol no, that’s why this is all really confusing to me. Last time I spoke to Tony we were texting each other about possibly training sometime. It’s probably just a publicity stunt,” he wrote.

He also then apologized for his tweet and deleted it.

“Definitely should’ve used a better choice of words, deleted that last tweet. My fault, I’m sorry guys,” Jon Jones wrote.

Both Jon Jones and Tony Ferguson are currently without fights booked. Yet, all signs point to El Cucuy taking on Khabib Nurmagomedov next. Jon Jones, meanwhile, says he is holding out for a ‘super-fight’ but a fight against Dominick Reyes makes sense.

Everyone wants a piece of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Including former interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. “El Cucuy” is currently awaiting news of his highly-anticipated Octagon return.

In the meantime, he has taken to Twitter to call out “Bones,” referencing their old college wrestling days.

“Lot Of Shit Talk @JonnyBones You Wanna Play Again Like We Did In College? I Bumped Up Two Weight Classes & I’ll Do It Again ? Growth. You Wanna Play Chess I’ll Be Your Huckleberry. Got You In 2 Neanderthal, Talked To Your Pops He Knows Who’s Champ. # Anklepick # DavidVSGoliath”

Jones is one of the most – if not the most – dominant champions mixed martial arts (MMA) has ever seen. He has never been legitimately beat inside the cage, and comes off a split decision victory over Thiago Santos to retain his 205-pound title earlier this summer. It’s believed Dominick Reyes will be the next man up to challenge “Bones” for the light heavyweight title. However, Jones also has the option to jump up to heavyweight and make his debut at the weight class.

As for Ferguson, he is on a ridiculous 12-fight win streak in, arguably, the UFC’s toughest and most talented division. He’s expected to be the next challenger for Khabib Nurmagomedov’s lightweight title. It’s rumored the pair could be booked to finally square off in Russia come early 2020.

Dillon Danis revealed there is some movement in a potential grappling match with current UFC welterweight Ben Askren.

The two have had their history of beefing each other on social media. Danis would later challenge Askren to a grappling match. Although “Funky” was not as receptive to it, he would later have a change of heart. However, he also stated that it would be after his mixed martial arts career.

But Danis claims Askren called for a grappling match much before:

“That’s real. Even before he came on your show, Flo Grappling came to my gym,” Danis said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on Monday. “They said that Ben Askren called Flo Grappling personally on the phone and said ‘I want to grapple Dillon Danis, let’s set it up.’ I said okay, let’s do it. I don’t care, I’m down.

“They were working on setting up some press conferences and building up a big event around it. I think that’d be awesome but the only thing that sucks is he’s going to get submitted by Demian Maia [at UFC Singapore this weekend] but let’s see what happens.”

Danis Could Have Grappled Tony Ferguson

The topic then turned to Joe Lauzon’s winning return at UFC Boston. Danis revealed that he actually grappled and defeated Lauzon back in the day while revealing something else — that he was initially supposed to grapple Tony Ferguson instead of Lauzon.

“Did I ever tell you about that, when I versed him [Lauzon] in that grappling match,” Danis added. “I was supposed to fight Tony Ferguson and then they came with Joe Lauzon. And back then, Tony Ferguson didn’t really have a name and I was like ‘yeah, I’ll go with Joe Lauzon.’

“Joe Lauzon’s a legend, even back then. I was like ‘Tony Ferguson? That guy fights on the prelims. He’s a purple belt.’ It’s funny how things come around. …Many years down the line, I’m still making all the calls.”

Brian Ortega: If Anyone Can Beat Khabib, It’s Tony Ferguson – Or Me

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the most dominant champions mixed martial arts (MMA) has ever seen. He has admitted he doesn’t have much time left in his career, and plans to retire soon. If he can remain undefeated, reaching a mark of 30-0 before hanging up his gloves, he has a case […]

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the most dominant champions mixed martial arts (MMA) has ever seen. He has admitted he doesn’t have much time left in his career, and plans to retire soon. If he can remain undefeated, reaching a mark of 30-0 before hanging up his gloves, he has a case for being the greatest of all time.

However, former UFC featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega believes “The Eagle” is beatable. Speaking to “Kumite TV” (H/T MMA Junkie) recently, Ortega believes, if anyone can beat Nurmagomedov, it’s ex-interim 155-pound champion Tony Ferguson. If not, Ortega believes he can get the job done himself.

“Tony is an amazing athlete – (and) he’s a great jiu-jitsu guard player as well,” Ortega said. “But when I see things, there’s just certain positions that I feel like I’m better at than certain people, and vice-versa, they’re better than me in certain positions.

“But the positions that Khabib is amazing at, I’m equally as amazing from the bottom of the coin. I feel like if anyone’s going to beat him, it’s Ferguson. And if not, we’re going to have to wait until I come up.”

Ferguson has racked up a lengthy win streak in the lightweight division, but a matchup with Nurmagomedov has long eluded him due to various injuries and other mishaps. Now, however, it seems like the stars might be perfectly aligned for the two to finally square off in early 2020.
