Let the mental games begin. Jon Jones may be the champion in the octagon, but Chael Sonnen continues to prove to be the champ of trash talk, leading into a fight. Shortly after a UFC promo was released with Jones unleashing a laundry list of negative attributes Sonnen possesses, “The Peoples Champ” has responded.
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 this industry has ever seen. So Jon, when I get done, grab your broom and sweep up afterwards.
You guys need to know one thing. On 4/27 at 7:00 PM, 10:00 in the East, not that the East coast matters, and only on PPV, by Chael Sonnen promotions in conjuction with Zuffa, LLC will bring to you the biggest fight of the year, the biggest lightheavyweight fight of all time. The young Jon Jones at last will have what every young fight dreams, 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 your the greatest fighter in the world today, gentlemen, they have a name for you. They don’t call you a great fighter, they call you Chael Sonnen.
Jon Jones, beat me, if you can.
The two are now ramping up trash talk for their upcoming UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen pay-per-view event on April 27, live from Newark, NJ. As always, you can expect full coverage of the event, here on CagedInsider.com
