UFC Star Claims Victory Over Jon Jones: ‘Winner By Submission’

Jon Jones

Getty Jon Jones takes questions during a news conference at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino to address being pulled from his light heavyweight title fight at UFC 200 against Daniel Cormier due to a potential violation of the UFC's anti-doping policy on July 7, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Well, fans may have seen the last of the back-and-forth Twitter battles between longtime UFC rivals.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and three-time UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen have traded blows several times on the platform throughout the years, however it appears “Bones” is done with it, blocking Sonnen’s account.

“The American Gangster” shared a screenshot on Twitter Tuesday morning confirming that Jones had blocked him. And to Sonnen, that’s a victory.

“And the Tap comes at 8:43, the WINNER by SUBMISSION (COWARDICE), and STILL UNDEFEATED, the BAD GUY, CHAAAAEEELLLL SONNNNNENNNNN!!!” Sonnen wrote. See the screenshot below:

This is not the first time The American Gangster has claimed he defeated Jones. Sonnen competed for Jones’ 205-pound belt in April 2013 at UFC 159 after coaching opposite each other on The Ultimate Fighter.

The fight didn’t make it out of the opening frame with Jones bludgeoning Sonnen in the latter part of the round, winning by TKO. However after the fight was over, Jones noticed that his toe had broken during the contest. Watch the break below:

If the fight made it out of the first round, the break was so severe that the commission could have called off the fight, awarding the win to Sonnen via injury.

On several occasions since their fight, Sonnen has said because of the toe break he won the fight. The fight would be Sonnnen’s last for a UFC title. He fought two more times in the promotion before finishing his MMA career in Bellator.

Last Month, Jones Erupted at Sonnen After ‘Birth’ Comment

At the end of May, Jones tweeted that he was “about to give birth to something big, something out of the ordinary.”

Sonnen replied to Jones’ tweet with a meme of Jones giving birth, writing: “Jon Jones is giving birth…to what?” See below:

The American Gangster’s comment sparked a scathing rant from Jones.

“I’ll tell you to go f*** yourself or to take my d*** out of your mouth and you’ll actually go home and celebrate getting my attention that day,” Bones said in a now-deleted tweet. “Seriously man, look at the position we are in.”

Jones continued, “I honestly couldn’t imagine hating someone so much. Making YouTube videos about another man who already kicked your a** just to make a dollar. You’re so beneath pathetic.”

The former light heavyweight champion continued, “Oregon boy probably grew up with all the opportunities in the world yet somehow you let me kick your a** and have everything you dreamed of. I understand why you hate me.”
