Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal knows that Chael Sonnen has done plenty of trash talking, but sees little from light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. When the Octagon cage closes, Lawal believes that’s when Jones will do his talking.
“When it comes down to it, Chael’s getting a title shot,” said Lawal to Fight Hub TV. “It’ll make good TV on Chael’s behalf because Jon doesn’t engage in trash talk. Chael will talk and Jon will wait for the cage.”
Sonnen and Jones currently coach opposite on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter. They meet at UFC 159 from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on April 27.
Lawal is waiting on word from Bellator officials about what’s next after being eliminated in the semifinals of their Season 8 light heavyweight tournament.
