Chael Sonnen (27-12-1) has a deal for Jon Jones (16-1) to end the bickering between the two once and for all. Sonnen went to his Facebook account and said he would stop the comments if Jones surrendered his lightweight championship to him.
In the Facebook post, Sonnen has a letter addressed to himself that is signed by the champion. The letter (written by Sonnen) has Jones forfeit the championship, congratulates the alleged new champion and plugs his own book. The post reads:
I am no longer permitted to speak ill of the former champion Jon Jones as we have come to an agreement. I will stop tearing him down verbally and in exchange he has relinquished his belt to me. I would like to read a prepared statement from the former Champion.
In every mans life a choice must eventually be made. Run or fight. I said I wouldn’t duck any man as champion. But you are no ordinary man. You’ve spoken nothing but truth in your attempt to gain a title fight with me. My last act of cowardness is to hand over what you would have beaten out of me 8 days from today. The UFC LHW Title. Now I must refocus my life. Good luck Champ.
Jon Bones Jones
P.S. I just ordered your best selling book, A Voice of Reason from amazon, I’ve been told by Greg Jackson that it will help me get through this tough time. Thanks
Jones has not commented on the recent actions by Sonnen.
