Chael Sonnen Says Jon Jones Is “Next”

Chael Sonnen believes he is the uncrowned UFC light heavyweight champion after Jon Jones refused to face him earlier this month.

Of course, Sonnen also said the same thing countless times towards UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, and that ended with Sonnen on the mat and Silva having his hand raised – twice.

Jones successfully defended his title Saturday night for the fourth time, defeating another ex-UFC champion in Vitor Belfort. “Bones,” however, likely suffered damage to his arm after Belfort locked him in an armbar early in the first round.

Last week, Jones said he didn’t grant Sonnen the title fight at UFC 151 because he didn’t feel he was deserving of another title shot. Sonnen responded via Twitter on Sunday.
