Come April 27, there will be no more talking, as UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen settle their differences inside the Octagon at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen.
Until that date comes, though, you can bet Sonnen will do everything in his power to promote the match – and take every possible shot at “Bones” that he can.
During his final appearance on UFC Tonight as host until after the fight, Sonnen had some choice words for the champion. Well, Jones took to his own social media platform to respond.
“You’re using your TV platform to clown me, it’s all good because I’m going to use my TV platform to clown you,” Jones wrote on Twitter. “There will be no more lines to remember come April 27th.”
The two seemed to have developed a mutual level of respect as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter, and that could be the case, as Sonnen is a master fight-promoter and could just be saying these things to help drive up the interest rate.
