“What I think needs to happen is — and Israel is on track — … he beats Romero,” White told Submission Radio. “[Paulo] Costa’s next. If he beats Costa, maybe there is one more guy there that would make sense. … Gets that fight, beats him and then you start talking about Jon Jones if Israel really wants that fight.
“But if you ask me, I think Israel should stay where he’s at. Keep picking these guys off for as long as he can and just build this phenomenal legacy.”
Jones and Adesanya have been trading barbs for almost a year. It all started when Adesanya said he was hunting another GOAT in Jones following his victory over Anderson Silva. Needless to say, Jones didn’t take too kindly to the comment.
