Earlier in the week ONE FC welterweight champion Ben Askren jumped on the D.C. train and started lobbing insults at UFC champ Jon Jones.

Taking to twitter, Askren stated, “Hey @dc_mma you know whats worse than 4th at the Olympics? 3rd to Matt Riddle at the state tourney! @JonnyBones”

Reluctantly, Jon took to UFC media day to respond:

“Yeah, I saw it. I’m not going to acknowledge it. He’s a Bellator fighter. I don’t want that to be taken the wrong way, but it’s like, bro, you’re the king of the JV league.”

Jon Jones fights Daniel Cormier in tomorrow night’s UFC 182 main event.
