It has been years since UFC light heavyweight champ Jon “Bones” Jones and Chael “The American Gangster” Sonnen shared the Octagon at UFC 159, but the bad blood continues. Bones defeated The American Gangster by TKO in the first round in the main event of the April 2013 card.
On May 16, the two took verbal jabs at each other on Twitter, setting Sonnen off on a Twitter rant. On Saturday afternoon, Jones tweeted:
He said, “Who is this? [Has-been] with now man boobs making money off of YouTube getting [hits] talking about Jon Jones?”
Fans guessed a few fighters, with many choosing Chael Sonnen as the answer to Jones’ question. Jones tweeted:
The light heavyweight champion said, “that took a whole 25 seconds for you guys to figure out, impressive.”
