Israel Adesanya, Dominick Reyes and a slew of other MMA fighters didn't have any mercy upon reacting to Jon Jones' latest arrest.
They took to Twitter and let the UFC light heavyweight champion have it after he was booked for an aggravated DWI and negligent use of a firearm early Thursday morning in New Mexico.
Adesanya, who has traded plenty of verbal exchanges with Jones in recent months, particularly had a field day with a relentless wave of attacks aimed at "Bones."

Perhaps the UFC middleweight champion took his most piercing shot at Jones on Instagram.

Reyes, whom Jones controversially defeated via unanimous decision in February, was more to the point in jabbing at Jones' history of personal demons and ever-growing rap sheet.
However, Adesanya and Reyes were far from being alone in voicing their opinions on Jones' latest indiscretion, as other MMA fighters teed off on the embattled champ as well.

For the life of me I can’t figure out why he doesn’t hire a buddy and pay him $50k a year to be his driver https://t.co/VcTyztKiVG— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) March 26, 2020
