Chael Sonnen Informs Jon Jones He Is Next

Chael Sonnen made sure to let Jon Jones know who the real light heavyweight champion is – at least in the mind of Sonnen.

Jones defended his title for a fourth time Saturday night via submission over Vitor Belfort.

Of course, we all know by now that Jones declined a fight with Sonnen for UFC 151 earlier this month. By doing so, Sonnen has laid claim to the title, much like he did during his feud with Anderson Silva.

Sonnen is set to face Forrest Griffin later this year, and UFC president Dana White has said that, while Sonnen is likely a few wins away from contending, if the fans want the fight – and the fighters want to face each other – he would likely make the match happen.

Here is what Sonnen wrote on Twitter Sunday:
