Jon Jones calls Chael Sonnen “the worst trash talker”, Sonnen fires back in vintage style

Jon Jones, Chael Sonnen

Former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Jon Jones recently stated that Chael Sonnen, one of the most infamous trash talkers in MMA, really isn’t actually all that good at trash talking.

“I think Chael Sonnen is the worst trash talker,” Jones told Russia’s Разрешите вас перебить recently, comparing Sonnen’s trash talk to that of Conor McGregor (via MMAjunkie). “Just because a lot of the stuff he says is gibberish. Conor McGregor, when he talks trash, there’s a lot of truth behind what he’s saying.”

It should come as no surprise that Chael Sonnen wasted no time in responding to these comments from Jon Jones. Shortly thereafter, the current Bellator MMA star went after Jones with a multi-part verbal assault on Twitter.

In these Tweets, nothing was off limits. Sonnen referenced Jones infamous hit-and-run, his alleged cocaine use, and more…

See Chael Sonnen’s responses below.

“JonJon

“JonJon

“Turn your cel-phone off; USADA has GPS TRACKING”

“Jon Jones-Your career took a bump in the road…and then you tried to snort it”

“Jon Jones-I heard you are not allowed at your brothers football games because you tried to snort all the lines off the field”

“Jon Jones had the same game plan in and out of the Octagon–Hit and Run”

Needless to say Chael Sonnen was keen to prove Jon Jones wrong. Do you think he was successful? Do you consider him the best trash talker in MMA?
