Yesterday, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones (18-1 MMA, 12-1 UFC) started tweeting about his experiences thus far in Moscow, Russia:

@JonnyBones: Ummm……. Am I the Oooonly black person in Russia???? Lol

@JonnyBones: Moscow makes New York City look like a small town. there are people everywhere and I mean everywhere! #stillnoblacks

@JonnyBones: Seminar today was a great success had hundreds of fighters show up

@JonnyBones: Felt great sharing my gift with mother Russia

@JonnyBones: Great picture of Fedor and I on my Instagram, gotta check it out

Then, earlier today, Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson (15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) tweeted that he too was headed to Moscow, and more:

@AlexTheMauler: Next stop Moscow!!!!!

@AlexTheMauler: Its on @JonnyBones cant wait to get in that cage with YOU!!!

Jones replied by stating the following:

@JonnyBones: Fighting me is not good for your image @AlexTheMauler FYI

    gustaffson is not ready for bones yet. he aint on his level, esp wrestling-wise. bones will dominate him in every aspect of the fight. i see bones taking gustaffson down at will and GnP’ing him either to a TKO or submission, either way it will be another finish and another successful title defense on jones’ record.i’d rather see hendo just cause he’s willing to (and can) take a few shots to get inside and land his own. i think hendo has a better chance and he needs to fight jones already.
