    Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones and lightweight contender, Dan Hooker continue to trade barbs over the week, with the two taking personal shots at each other across their social media.

    Hooker, a staple of City Kickboxing in Auckland, New Zealand, recently fired a barb toward former two-time light heavyweight champion, Jones last week, when he praised former UFC title chaser, Chael Sonnen for beating up five separate people in one night – avoiding striking his longtime wife, alluding to Jones’ recent September 24., last, arrest where he was charged with battery domestic violence

    In response to Hooker, Jones claimed that the Kiwi’s career in the sport was faltering following a pair of losses in his last three Octagon walks.

    @danthehangman (Dan Hooker) Bro your career is simply not panning out,” Jones tweeted. “That’s my response. Lol.

    In another post regarding Hooker, Jones claimed that the New Zealand native had “dropped the ball” each time he had the opportunity to mirror teammate, Israel Adesanya and reach UFC gold.

    @danthehangman (Dan Hooker), every opportunity you’ve had to make a name for yourself and be closer to your boy Izzy (Israel Adesanya), you’ve dropped the ball,” Jones tweeted on Christmas Day. “You can’t achieve greatness, so you hop online and attack someone who has. Sounds about right.

    Issuing a pair of responses to Jones’ separate tweets, Hooker once more commented on the differences between Jones’ and Sonnen’s recent arrests. 

    I was triggered by your disingenuous attempt to bring attention to Chael’s (Sonnen) situation,” Hooker tweeted. “He was arrested for defending his wife, you were arrested for assaulting yours. (apple emoji) & (orange emoji)

    In his second tweet, Hooker once again alluded to Jones’ recent September arrest for battery domestic violence.

    Life hack:” Hooker tweeted. “If you don’t beat up your wife, family events will be more enjoyable. Merry Xmas b*tch.
