Dan Henderson Rings In New Year With Crack Towards Jon Jones; ‘Bones’ Replies

Dan Henderson didn’t let 2012 end without taking a shot at UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

The two were scheduled to collide this past summer, but a knee injury in training knocked Henderson out. The former Strikeforce champion posted the following on Twitter late Monday night.

The last part makes it quite obvious that Henderson was mocking Jones, who was involved in a car crash following a night of drinking in 2012. Jones entered a guilty plea to DWI, but avoided any jail time so far by completing classes.

Henderson is scheduled to face Lyoto Machida in February at UFC 157.

Jones took to his own Twitter account on Wednesday in reply, posting, “lol the old guy got jokes.. that a boy… on to the next one.”
