Chael Sonnen is like that annoying pest that will not go away. How far that takes Sonnen in regards to a shot at UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones remains to be seen.
Sonnen, who used his words to provoke a different side of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, is scheduled to face Forrest Griffin later this year in his UFC debut at 205 pounds. Sonnen was turned down by Jones for a match at UFC 151, as “Bones” said he didn’t feel as though Sonnen deserved the fight.
Hey Jon, What do you think will cost more? Your hospital tab or the settlement you made with the two broads from the backseat?@jonnybones

Jones actually posted on Twitter for the first time since before his victory over Vitor Belfort this past weekend on Monday, writing, “Just got home from Baltimore, what a great game yesterday. Great to be home for a while. Mission complete.”
