Chael Sonnen Absolutely Butchers Jon Jones Via Twitter

Chael Sonnen had a few choice words for his former opponent Jon Jones after the divisive star criticised his approach to trash-talking in a recent interview.

Jon Jones managed to find himself in the crosshairs of the outspoken former UFC title-challenger after speaking to the Russian media about his views on the trash-talking prowess of both Conor McGregor and Chael Sonnen.

When asked to compare both men’s respective silver tongues, Jones clearly favoured the Irishman over his past conquest Sonnen, telling Russian outlet Allow Me To Interrupt he sees the American’s approach as shallow to a certain extent.

“I think Chael Sonnen is the worst trash talker. Just because a lot of the stuff he says is gibberish. Conor McGregor, when he talks trash there’s a lot of truth behind what he’s saying.

“I think Khabib will be under more pressure. Just because, he has a very dangerous fighter who usually backs up what he says. Where Chael Sonnen is known to talk trash and lose.”

Sonnen has never been a man to let even the slightest of jabs slide and within hours of Jon making his original statement, ‘The Bad Guy’ had taken to Twitter with an admittedly hilarious assault on his former-rival’s character.

Look, we all know exactly how things would go down if these two ever met inside the octagon again but for what it’s worth – this is a clear 10-8 to Chael.
