UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was impressed with Chael Sonnen’s victory over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua Saturday night.
The two competed in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen, which was the first event on the newly-christened FOX Sports 1.
“Not bad Chael,” Jones posted on Twitter minutes after Sonnen finished submitting Rua in the first round.
Jones, who bested Sonnen earlier this year, won the UFC title from Rua.
Next up for “Bones” will be Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson from Toronto in September.
Not bad Chael
