Jon Jones wasn’t impressed by Corey Anderson’s stunt.

Today, Jon Jones took part in a fan event in New Jersey, where he was joined — in an unofficial capacity — by light heavyweight contender Corey Anderson.

Anderson has been touted as the likely next challenger for Jones’ title, riding a three fight win streak and one of the few men at 205-pounds who Jones has yet to meet in the Octagon. Now, there seems to be more of a personal dislike, as Anderson approached Jones while the champion was taking pictures with fans, much to Jones obvious annoyance.

After the interaction, Jones took to his social media to address the issue, mostly writing off the stunt as a way for Anderson to garner some attention. He also pointed out that when confronted at the scene, Anderson didn’t actually have many words for Jones, and labeled him a coward.
