Jon Jones Keeps Pot-Shotting Chuck Liddell

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones isn’t yet allowed to fight in the Octagon, but he’s certainly doing his fair share of punching outside of the cage.

Embroiled in a bitter feud with UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell, Jones hasn’t been able to let their Twitter beef die.

Liddell was recently caught in cahoots with boxing promoter Oscar De La Hoya. The two admitted to De La Hoya planning to start up Golden Boy MMA to try his hand at mixed martial arts promotion. Not only is the former world champion boxer talking to “the Iceman” about working with him on the business side of the equation, but is also hatching a plan to have him return to the cage.

Jon Jones and Chuck LiddellLiddell recently stated during an episode of The MMA Hour, “I will fight again, yeah. If we can get a deal together with somebody that makes sense, yes, (it’s guaranteed). It does not hinge on Tito’s participation.”

A third fight with Tito Ortiz, however, is the target for Liddell’s return. Ortiz, for his part, has also stated that he is willing to emerge from retirement for a trilogy bout. Liddell, however, isn’t looking for a one-and-done return. He wants more.

“In my mind, I would like two good warm up fights, and I’d like a shot at Jon Jones. I am serious, I’d like a shot at him. We will see. Just, match styles.”

When Jones found out about Liddell’s challenge, he started up a blaze on Twitter, which has gone back and forth. Though it had seemed to have run its course, Jones, as of late Thursday night, wasn’t yet done, unleashing his latest flurry of shots at Liddell.

“Brother, I don’t have to be retired to be a legend, first of all,” Jones wrote. “And you talking to me about conducting my life outside the cage is just hysterical. Chuck, we all know you’re far from innocent.”

“I’m done with all this Internet bulls–t for the time being, if you have something else to say to me, I’ve already invited you down to Albuquerque. Take care old man Ladelle (sic),” Jones concluded… for now.
