This statement was not satisfactory for ‘Lionheart’, who quickly returned to Jon Jones for comments.
“You’re just flexing,” said Smith of Jones. “You’re really an asshole, man. What are you doing? First of all, I had the worst case. We understand Jon, you’re all over Twitter and Instagram with all your guns and your dog cool, but I got caught. I got caught sliding, worst case scenario. The weapons weren’t close: not typical. The door was open: not typical. I don’t understand what he wants say. “
Anthony Smith continued to speak on Jon Jones’ comments:
“It’s really easy to sit there and leave” if this guy came to my house, I would have just beaten him, I would have done it, I would have shot him. “It’s really easy to say that until you are caught in it and you have been awake for eight seconds and you are in the middle of a fucking pandemonium thrown in the middle of your living room without pants. Nobody is ready for that. It’s really easy to get on Twitter. “
Jones and Smith met in the main event of UFC 235 in March 2019, with the “Bones” emerging victorious by unanimous decision.
Most recently, Jon Jones responded to Smith on Twitter where he shared the following advice for the former title challenger to move forward.
Anthony If you’re going to leave your garage door open all night, hurry up and get the family a gun, a sledgehammer or something. A more shower bag like me could have completely accompanied you all night long, it could have been bad for everyone.
