UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is used to fighters coming after him through Twitter and other media outlets.

The latest, Alexander Gustafsson, claims he is the next challenger to the belt “Bones” holds so near and dear to his heart.

While Jones is in Moscow, “The Mauler” posted that he is on his way to the country, and some choice words for Jones.

Jones replied back with “Fighting me is not good for your image FYI.” Well, Gustafsson didn’t stop there, issuing a slight slap in regards to the recent contenders to Jones, writing, “if you think of what is good for your image, maybe you should continue to fight 185ers??”
