UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has preferred to let Chael Sonnen do the trash-talking as the two build towards a collision later this month at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen.
However, during an appearance on UFC Tonight, “Bones” took his own shot at the former UFC middleweight contender.
“People know that Chael Sonnen has done steroids throughout his whole career and that’s probably why his testosterone is low now,” Jones said. “I don’t think that is the heart or attitude of a champion.”
Jones also added that he has quickly realized in his brief MMA career that “talking trash does nothing for the fight.”
With a win over Sonnen, Jones can tie Tito Ortiz for the UFC record for successful title defenses at five in the light heavyweight division.
