Jon Jones In ‘Fight-Mode’ Weeks Out From Chael Sonnen Bout

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones had little to say to challenger Chael Sonnen while appearing Saturday night on FX.

Jones and Sonnen, who were coaches on the recently-concluded season of The Ultimate Fighter, will square off in less than two weeks for the UFC title.

While they seemed to enjoy each others company on the reality series, “Bones” wasn’t feeling like playing any mental games with Sonnen Saturday.

“The work is already done,” said Jones, when asked about the match. A follow-up question in regards to if he had anything to say to Sonnen was answered with a simple “No.”

Sonnen, of course, rattled off several of his typical one-liners – which will probably continue as press events continue in the lead-up to the pay-per-view.
