Jon Jones Letting Sonnen Promote Fight, But Trash Talk Won’t Help In The Cage

April 17, 2013 8:48 am by bjpenn.com staff 12 Comments

Last night UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, stopped by FUEL TV’s ‘UFC Tonight’ to discuss his upcoming title defense against Chael Sonnen.

Here is how it went down:

Jon Jones response to Chael Sonnen trash talk: “I don’t really have too much of a response. Chael’s doing what he does best. He’s promoting a fight and I’m going to let him do it.”

Jones on why he’s not trash talking before UFC 159: “I realize through experience that talking trash does nothing for the fight.”

Jones on what he’s most concerned about against Sonnen: “I’m really not concerned with too many of Chael’s gifts. Chael is an awesome fighter, he has pretty good boxing, he loves wrestling and he’s been really successful with his wrestling. He has really good ground-and-pound. I’ve just familiarized myself with the whole thing and I’m really comfortable with what I’m getting ready to face. I wouldn’t say any of it really concerns me. I’m just ready to go out there, react, be instinctual, do my best and try to do what I do.”

Jones on if he has something to say to Sonnen: “I’d tell him to bring it. Bring your best. I hope you’re having a great camp and I hope you’re healthy and I’m excited for this awesome challenge.”
