If there wasn't any feud between Quinton Jackson and Jon Jones prior to their upcoming title bout at UFC 135, there is one now. 

Following Jackson's accusations of his opponent's camp allegedly spying on him, Jones immediately responded back with some less than kind words for "Rampage" via Twitter.

"Just so you know, I'm not a person who looks for shortcuts in life. Unlike you, MMA is not something I do because of money," Jones said. 

Judging by his comments, it's no surprise that Jackson would respond with some choice words of his own.

"Yeah I keep it real, I fight 4 $ cause I hate training, but I love giving ass whoopins, and ill b giving 1 on the 24th, btw grow up!," he posted.

While the war of words continues to escalate between the two light heavyweights, it is promising to be one of the most anticipated fights of the year. Jones has been making some enemies as of late, and it is interesting to note how he is able to verbally spar with both Jackson and Rashad Evans. 

Evans, who will meet the winner between Jones and Jackson, has done his best to stay out of the spotlight while Jones prepares for his first title defense, however, it is Jones who is the one seemingly finding time to multi-task.

Whether it is a good thing or not, it surely makes for some intriguing rivalries along the way and gives Jones the proverbial target on his back in the light heavyweight division.
