Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones hasn’t been too impressed by surging contender Anthony Smith. Smith, however, has not been afraid to clap back at the former champion at defend himself when necessary.
Smith’s latest comments about Jon Jones occurred shortly after the UFC’s 25th anniversary show in Denver, Colorado, where he assured that contrary to the former champ’s recent remarks, he is ready for a title shot.
”Man, people have been saying that s**t about me forever,” he told reporters at a post-event scrum (transcript via MMAMania). “I wasn’t ready for [Volkan] Oezdemir, I wasn’t ready for ‘Shogun’ [Rua]. When are people going to … maybe I’m just good? I don’t know when people might entertain that, but I might just be good.”
