Chael Sonnen had a microphone and the stage Saturday night, taking part in the UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Melendez analyst team just a week before he faces Jon Jones.
The UFC light heavyweight champion, though, used Twitter to respond. The two will collide next week at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen.
While Sonnen made sure to rattle off his usual one-liners, Jones replied simply at first with “…”
However, “Bones” decided to continue on, posting, “That’s a pretty aggressive bark. I can’t wait to see the look on his face as he carries the weight of all his comments come fight night.”
These two have been waiting for several months to square off. They will do so on pay-per-view from Newark, New Jersey.
Jones later in the night added, “if you want to witness a man’s dream of becoming a champion demolish tune in on April 27th.”
