Chael Sonnen mocks Jon Jones after failed negotiations: You did it all wrong

New, comments

“Jon did everything out of order. Proof that he did everything out of order is that he didn’t get what he wanted.”

Chael Sonnen is back for round two with Jon Jones following ‘Bone’s’ ‘has-been’ dig on social media last week.

This time, however, Sonnen has take to YouTube to berate the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion, mocking Jones for his failed negotiations with the UFC over the Francis Ngannou bout.

Sonnen mocked Jones for his lack of business acumen and said the pound-for-pound No. 1 should have waited for the UFC to call him.

“Let the public take it to the UFC, and the chain of events is the UFC has to like it enough that they call you – they call you,” Sonnen said on his YouTube channel (h/t MMA Fighting). “They call you? Boom, you’ve got them. Now we can talk money. You call them? You don’t get to talk money. It doesn’t work that way. Jon did everything out of order. Proof that he did everything out of order is that he didn’t get what he wanted.”

“There was a man arrested on arson and vandalism,” Sonnen said as if reading from a teleprompter. “He sent a selfie to the police in Ohio because he found the photo of his arrest warrant to be unflattering. That guy is smarter than Jon Jones.”

Sonnen also hounded Jones on Twitter after the JacksonWink product hinted at walking away from the sport following failed negotiations with the UFC.

Jones later retracted his comments about walking away from the sport and will likely defend his UFC light heavyweight title against Jan Blachowicz upon his return.
