Hey, Chael Sonnen, Have Anything To Say About Jon Jones?

Mike Dinovo-USA TODAY Sports

Despite taking a leave of absence as host of UFC Tonight to prepare for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, Chael Sonnen returned to the show earlier this week.

The two will meet in a matter of weeks at UFC 159, and Sonnen didn’t want another day to go by without a few choice words for “Bones.”

Check out the transcript of Chael P. Sonnen’s rant below:

This is a public address from the people’s champion himself. I will come on stage, I will sell the tickets. I’m the highest paid fighter in the history of the UFC and I’m the biggest draw that this industry has ever seen. On 4/27, Chael Sonnen Promotions, in conjunction with Zuffa, LLC will bring to you the biggest fight of the year, the biggest light heavyweight fight of all time. The young Jon Jones at last will have what every young fighter dreams about: A chance to go one-on-one, to actually share the people’s Octagon, with Chael Sonnen. And he will be reminded the hard way what you already know: When you’re the greatest fighter in the world today, they have a name for you, they don’t call you a great fighter, they call you Chael Sonnen.

Is anybody buying that Sonnen can solve the mystery of Jones? I know he gave Anderson Silva everything he could handle the first time around, but it feels like he might have done nothing but anger a quiet assassin.
