Dana White paid heed on the intense Social Media battle between Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones, and expressed his thoughts.
Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones, who’ve been at daggers drawn throughout the week, may potentially go up against each other in the Octagon. Both Adesanya and Jones, exhibit an immaculate record in MMA, and a match-up between them could generate one of the greatest iconic events of all time. But, the path isn’t clear, since Israel Adesanya is the current Middleweight champion, and Jon Jones has moved to the Heavyweight Division, to capture the famed title of the weight class, however, with the kind of animosity they have showcased towards each other this week and in the recent past, one can conclude it is a perfect build up for a huge one-on-one.

Dana White’s Comments On The Potential Contest
The ongoing back-and-forth between the two has garnered the attention of Dana White, and he is seemingly interested in watching the two undefeated professionals sharing ring space. In a brief interview with UFC Arabia, before UFC Fight Island 4, Dana White addressed the Twitter tussle between Stylebender and Bones and answered questions regarding the potential clash. He said, “That’s the fight to make, 100 percent. I think that a fight between those two is massive.” White further stated, “It doesn’t depend on what I want. It depends on what they want to do. Adesanya is a champ. He’s really coming into his own, and you can tell he knows this is his house, and he comes and acts like it. I think he wants the winner of Whittaker and Cannonier, and then we’ll see what happens after that.” (Source- MMA Junkie)
Though the war on Social Media does not seem to end soon, however an in-ring encounter may not become a possibility, at least not in the foreseeable future.
