UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones had a few more words for Chael Sonnen this time around, as “Bones” appeared on UFC Tonight Tuesday. The two will meet at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen later this month.
After appearing together at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale over the weekend, Jones was a little more open on the show in regards to talking up the fight.
“I realize through experience that talking trash does nothing for the fight,” Jones said.
As far as a response to Sonnen, he simply added, “Chael’s doing what he does best. He’s promoting a fight and I’m going to let him do it.
Jones, though, did have a simple statement to offer in regards to his challenger. With a win, he would tie Tito Ortiz with five successful defenses of the 205-pound title.
“I’d tell him to bring it,” he said. “Bring your best. I hope you’re having a great camp and I hope you’re healthy and I’m excited for this awesome challenge.”
