Tom Aspinall found amusement in Jon Jones’ tweet about UFC London, where he believes Jones was rather condescending. After Tom’s impressive victory over Marcin Tybura, Jones responded with a nonchalant “sounds good lol,” showing little interest in the matter.

During an interview on The MMA Hour, Aspinall playfully remarked, “I’m just putting it out there…Jon Jones…a patronizing guy. I think he kind of patronized me. How dare he patronize me? How dare he?”

Jones has a history of mocking his opponents and asserting his dominance, having earned the right to be confident due to his achievements in the sport. Aspinall recognizes that many fighters have called Jones out in the past, only to falter on their way to the top. Nonetheless, he sees himself as a unique challenge and dreams of facing Jones one day.

Aspinall acknowledges that Jones has a tough fight ahead against Stipe Miocic at UFC 295, and there’s speculation that it might be Jones’ last octagon appearance. Aspinall hopes for the opportunity to face Jones before his retirement, believing he brings a distinct set of skills to the table. Being quick for a heavyweight and possessing significant fight IQ, Aspinall believes he can surprise the world by defeating Jones.

He also mentions a potential fight with the winner of the upcoming UFC Paris event between Ciryl Gane and Serghei Spivac. While he previously beat Spivac, he acknowledges it could be a risky move, considering Spivac’s potential for an upset. Another option for Aspinall could be Sergei Pavlovich, who is on a winning streak and could serve as a perfect title eliminator for Jones.

Ultimately, Aspinall’s main goal is to win the UFC heavyweight title, so missing out on a fight with Jones wouldn’t be the end of the world for him. Beating Jones would be an added bonus in his journey to becoming a champion. He believes he has the skills and power to knock out anyone, including Jon Jones, given the chance.
