On Wednesday night, Adesanya made his first post on Meta’s new Threads app, and it came with a delightful surprise—a video showcasing a fun moment shared by Adesanya and Jones during International Fight Week in Las Vegas.
Take a look at the video below.
“Can you believe it? First, Alex Pereira, and now this guy, Jones,” exclaimed Adesanya.
Jones, with a smile, replied, “Bless this king,” as the clip came to an end.
In March, Jones made a triumphant return to the octagon after more than three years and claimed the heavyweight title by submitting Ciryl Gane in the first round at UFC 285. Adesanya, on the other hand, recaptured his middleweight championship in April with a remarkable second-round knockout of his longtime rival, Alex Pereira, at UFC 287.
While both fighters are expected to defend their titles later this year, with Adesanya aiming for September at UFC 293 in Sydney, and Dana White teasing a potential showdown between Jones and Stipe Miocic, no official announcements have been made yet.
