Tai Tuivasa is sharing a DM exchange with Jon Jones, claiming ‘Bones’ has blocked him.

Tuivasa (14-3 MMA) is on a five fight winning streak which he is hoping to make six when he meets up with Ciryl Gane (10-1 MMA) in a heavyweight battle on September 3rd at the Accor Arena in Paris, France.

Jones (26-1 MMA) has not fought since February of 2020 where he defeated Dominick Reyes (12-3 MMA) by unanimous decision at UFC 247. Jones is apparently ready to debut as a heavyweight and is just waiting on an opponent.

There are indications that Jones may get in the cage with former champion Stipe Miocic (20-4 MMA). The current reigning titleholder Francis Ngannou (17-3 MMA) is still recovering from surgery at this time.

Tuivasa took to ‘Instagram‘ to post screenshots of his interaction with Jones.  The two fighters appear to have engaged in a confrontational conversation through DM’s (direct messages) as seen below:



“You sound off ya head. (peering emoji) I’d out party ya too I reckon. Just sayin (tipping hand emoji) but yeah Mary had a lil lamb too and I smoked her (smoke and laughing emojis) whatever whatever bra when you come back I’ll still be around you want a warm up lamb roast I’ll be waiting (hug emoji)”


“Good luck with your beer company”


“Cheers I’ll send you some”


“I don’t need it, you keep it. Lol  Stop writing”


“Sweet. You stop writing.”

Tuivasa, the no.3-ranked heavyweight contender revealed that Jones blocked him soon after the conversation.

Perhaps ‘Bam Bam’ is just trying to set up a heavyweight match-up between himself and Jon ‘Bones’ Jones. Would you like to see those two battle it out inside the Octagon?
