There was once a time when Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones traded barbs back and forth over social media, and there was teasing about a potential battle in the UFC between the two at light heavyweight.

Now, all that seems to be in the past with new videos that have emerged across social media. And everyone seems to be all aboard about it.

"The Last Stylebender" took to social media to show himself hanging out with Jones, which also included a mock face-off and some light play fighting between the two.

Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones showcase squashed beef, better rapport in new social media videos

In fact, his first post on the new Threads app shows Jones putting his arm around him.

"First Alex, then this mo********er Jones," Adesanya said, referencing a previous, also amicable run-in at an airport with another competitive rival in Alex Pereira.

The reaction to the videos from the MMA community on social media seemed to be overwhelming positive.

Adesanya most recently competed in April at UFC 287, knocking out Pereira to regain the UFC middleweight championship.

Though nothing has officially been announced, Adesanya is rumored to be next fighting in September, when the UFC returns to Australia for UFC 293 in Sydney. Robert Whittaker and Dricus du Plessis face off in a middleweight title eliminator bout at the upcoming UFC 290 pay-per-view.

Jones, meanwhile, most recently fought at UFC 285 in March, when he made his heavyweight debut with a quick, first-round submission of Ciryl Gane to win the then-vacant UFC heavyweight championship.

Though also not announced, current rumors are that Jones will defend the title against Stipe Miocic in November at the UFC's annual Madison Square Garden pay-per-view card.
