UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has taken exception to comments made by Chael Sonnen.
Sonnen, who announced just Tuesday night that he would fight next in the 205-pound division, appears to have set his sights on Jones – much like he did UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
Jones responded to Sonnen’s remarks via Twitter, writing earlier today, “If you’re going to disrespect me out of nowhere, at least disrepect me to my face like a man. And you call me a punk, I’m more man than you’ll ever be #Coward #Cheater.”
Sonnen replied to that statement by taking a shot at the Nike contract Jones recently signed, writing, “Advice to (Jones). Take some of that Nike money, hire new writers.”
It didn’t stop there between these two, however:
@sonnench lol you’re an idiot if you think I haven’t heard every dui joke in the book. I applaud original ones, that’s powerless
