Chael Sonnen goes off on ‘rat’ Jon Jones after Twitter ‘has-been’ comment

Jon Jones has been sassing Twitter trolls all week, but did he make a mistake in poking the trash talking beast known as Chael P. Sonnen?

Oh, Twitter. How did fighters (and former fighters) ever effectively communicate their smack talk before it?

Of course, it’s worth noting that some fighters should probably spend a little less time on Twitter. Jon Jones usually disappears from the public eye after one of his now regular pants-sh*ting events. But after getting off with a slap on the wrist for his latest DUI (with bonus gunfire) charge, he’s stayed on social media. Whether he’s playing up the villain role to increase interest in his next fight or simply bored, he’s doing quite a job of grabbing headlines.

In this latest example, he called out Chael Sonnen, former Middleweight contender turned ESPN and YouTube commentator.

Ol’ Chael P. never shies away from an online conflict, and let fly with some classic material that approached slam poetry at times.

Jones may have a solid claim to G.O.A.T. status in the cage, but few fingers fly as furious as Sonnen’s when it comes time to dish on the internet. We give this one to the “West Linn Gangster” 10-8.
