The punches keep on rolling but not inside the Octagon for one Mr. Jon Jones.
If you are an MMA fan there is no doubting that you have already heard about the news of Jon Jones being stripped of the UFC’s light heavyweight title and will no longer compete at UFC 187 against Anthony Johnson.
What you may not have known is that Chael Sonnen in a recent Reddit Q&A session predicted that the fight between the 205lbs juggernauts would not go ahead.
Fan: Hey Chael big fan! What do you think about Jones vs Johnson?
Sonnen: Won’t happen. Mark my words.
29 days following this Q&A, well would you look at that? Mystic Chael’s prediction came through. Amazing right? Well not as amazing as the limited t-shirts the former UFC fighter has on sale right now.

Jon Jones’ former ‘Bones Knows’ slogan under the Nike brand has been taken over by Sonnen but there’s only 25 of these t-shirts available so get yours quickly.
Also taking an opportunity to chime in on the news that Jon Jones had been taken out of the UFC fighter rankings is Dublin’s own Conor McGregor who fights now number one ‘pound-for-pound’ Brazilian Jose Aldo at UFC 189.
The Irishman is never far from trolling the public and fighters with this latest gem of a tweet.
The rankings are still wrong.
