UFC middleweights Chael Sonnen and Jason “Mayhem” Miller exchanged some heated words today on Twitter.

Miller, smarting from his recent defeat to Michael Bisping and looking for his first UFC victory against C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146, launched the first attack, tweeting that “Chael berating someone on their test level is like me making fun of someone’s bad haircut.”

Never at a loss for words, Sonnen responded “MayHem: Due to time constraints I am currently confining my Twitter wars to active, relevant fighters ONLY. Buy a T-shirt on your way out.”

Miller replied that Sonnen was “one beatdown away from obscurity” and that he’d “be happy to beat your head in—that’s if it’s not still on a pike in Rio.”

The two men previously met at “HFP 1: Rumble on the Reservation” in 2002, a fight which Sonnen won by decision.

Miller has said that he will quit mixed martial arts if he loses to Dollaway in May. Sonnen will next face UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva when the two square off in what many are considering the most-anticipated rematch in MMA history at UFC 147 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
