Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones live-tweeted the UFC 259 headliner between Israel Adesanya and Jan Blachowicz and heckled the middleweight champ’s attempt to win a second belt.

Blachowicz outpointed Adesanya via unanimous decision on Saturday at UFC APEX. But long before the scorecards were announced, Jones had written off his rival Adesanya’s efforts on Twitter, where he’s repeatedly sparred with “The Last Stylebender” over the past year.

Adesanya had talked up a showdown with Jones by year’s end. But “Bones,” who’s expected to meet the winner of the UFC 260 title rematch between heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou, scoffed at the idea after UFC 259’s ending.

Here’s what Jones had to say about the fight as it played out.
