The always controversial UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen is at it again with his war of words against the current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Chael went on Twitter earlier this week and is trying to pick a fight with Jones yet again.
Here is Chael via Twitter: chael sonnen
Hey Jon, What do you think will cost more? Your hospital tab or the settlement you made with the two broads from the backseat?
Jones made it apparent in the build up to his UFC 152 fight with Vitor Belfort that he has no intentions on challenging Chael Sonnen anytime soon. He went on to say that he thinks Chael is disrespectful for disparaging the entire Brazilian country, and that there are more deserving guys in the light heavyweight division other than Chael.
Chael apparently is not backing down, and it seems like he will stop at nothing to get another title fight with arguably the best talent the UFC has right now. Chael is a genius in terms of selling a fight, and his relentless grappling attack certainly could pose some problems to the long and lean Jon Jones.
Jones even showed to be human in his bout with Vitor Belfort; namely when Belfort locked up an armbar in the first round that almost ended the night for Mr. Jones. Maybe Chael’s grappling attack could pose more problems for the young champion because he is virtually untested in the wrestling department. Jones hasn’t responded to Chael’s taunts on Twitter, so maybe he is just taking the high road because he knows the bout won’t be booked. Dana White said that the bout could happen if the fans want to see it bad enough.
Still, one has to wonder how well Chael would do against Jones. Both have amazing skills in terms of wrestling, and it would be interesting to see if Chael could take Jones down and try to grind him down, which no one has done thus far. Whatever is next for both Chael and Jones, it is always fun to see them duke it on on the Twitter battlegrounds for now.
