UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is gearing up to get into “training-mode” completely, as he prepares to face Chael Sonnen next month at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen.
Jones can make history with a win over Sonnen, as he would tie Tito Ortiz for most successful title defenses of the 205-pound belt. However, “Bones” is more focused on just putting a nail in Sonnen’s title-chase for good.
“This will be Chael Sonnen’s last chance at a title and I am going to train that way,” Jones posted on Twitter.
Sonnen lost a pair of UFC middleweight title fights to Chael Sonnen, prompting his decision to enter the ranks of light heavyweight again. Sonnen is scheduled to respond to remarks of Jones on UFC Tonight this evening.
