Colby Covington took to Twitter to brutally roast Jon Jones after 'Bones' revealed that his fiancee left him two months ago.

'Bones' further added that his fiancee would not return to him. Covington believes that was a sensible decision on her part as he took a shot at the former light heavyweight champion.

"Tremendous news. Guess you finally knocked some sense into her @johnnybones," tweeted Colby Covington.

Covington has called out several stars over the past few years by playing the heel. Jones has also been a target in the past, and 'Chaos' wasted no time in taking another shot.

Jones has had a tough few months and was arrested in Las Vegas in 2021.

Jon Jones was arrested early Friday morning by the Las Vegas Metro PD, a police spokesperson told ESPN. Jones is being charged with battery domestic violence and injuring and tampering with a vehicle. More info coming to @espn.

Jones was in Las Vegas that night as he was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame for his 2013 fight against Alexander Gustafsson. However, later that night, police found out about a domestic violence incident at Ceaser's Palace.

According to a report from MMAFighting, a female was found bleeding from her nose and mouth. She was later identified as Jessie Moses, the fiancee of Jon Jones.

Colby Covington and Jon Jones were roommates in college

Colby Covington used to share a room with Jones during their college days, according to 'Chaos'.

In a 2014 interview on Fox Sports' MMA Roasted (h/t Bleacher Report), Covington revealed that the duo got into a lot of trouble during their college days. He said that they used a get into fights at home parties. The duo lived in a small town in Iowa where others always wanted to pick fights with wrestlers like them.

He also emphasized back then that Jones had a really bad temper. 'Bones' would often lose his cool and he would throw people out of the window.

Nevertheless, a lot has changed since then. Jon Jones went on to become the youngest champion in the history of the UFC. Covington also tasted UFC gold when he beat Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight title.
