Henry Cejudo believes former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones would end Israel Adesanya’s life if given the chance.

Cejudo and Jones are now teammates at Fight Ready in Arizona after Jones left Jackson-Wink following his latest legal issues. He continues to return to the Octagon after nearly three years out of competition.

Ahead of his highly anticipated heavyweight debut, Jones teased a fight with Adesanya on countless occasions. The two parties have gone back and forth in various interviews and social media threads over the years.

While the banter between Jones and Adesanya has been mostly playful, Cejudo thinks a personal reference made by Adesanya could end up being his downfall.

During recent segment on his YouTube channelCejudo gave his thoughts on how a Jones vs. Adesanya fight might go.

“Jones would kill Israel,” Cejudo said of the Jones/Adesanya beef. “It feels like Jones would absolutely kill him, man. If you were to let Jones literally kill him, Jones would kill him. That’s how much he doesn’t love her.

“But that’s understood too, man. The reason why I kind of started not becoming a fan of Israel is just because of the simple fact that he talked about (Jones’) mother, who died, you know what I mean ? Like, for me, it was like a dealbreaker… that’s what really confused me a bit about Israel. I was cool with him before, but once I saw this I was like, man, this guy – they’re ready to do anything, man. That’s not cool, man. There are limits to this stuff, and you just don’t do it.

The reference to Jones’ late mother that Cejudo alluded to came end of 2020 when the two brought their respective families into the trash talk. Jones’ mother died after a long battle with diabetes in 2017 at the age of 55.

Adesanya remains intrigued by a future match with Jones, although it’s unclear if the fight would be at light heavyweight or heavyweight. Either way, the two UFC stars seem to have an animosity that could rival some of the most passionate couples in sports history.
