Jon Jones feels ‘sad’ for Colby Covington

Summer Kickoff Press Conference Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Colby Covington continues making enemies in the MMA world, whether it’s in person or over the internet.

One day after an altercation in Australia with Fabricio Werdum that resulted in Covington pressing assault charges, Covington got into it with former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Jones got the ball rolling on Wednesday night by coming down on Werdum’s side in the their dispute.

Covington then returned fire by referencing Jones’ legal and administrative troubles.

Jones then fired off a string of sometimes-cryptic tweets in response.

If we know anything about Jones and Covington, it’s highly unlikely either is going to let the other get the last word.
