Chael Sonnen

Jon Jones is an

'Entitled, Bratty Kid'

Chael Sonnen is TEARING into Jon Jones ... calling the UFC champ an "entitled bratty kid" for refusing to fight him at UFC 151.

Chael was hangin' out in front of his pizza joint in Oregon ... not training ...  since Jones refused to accept Chael as a replacement fighter for Dan Henderson, who had to pull out of UFC 151 due to a knee injury.  The event has since been canceled entirely ... the first time the UFC has EVER canceled an event.

Sonnen is clearly furious with Jones ... claiming his refusal to take the fight is an act of "treason.'

"Jon Jones isn't gonna fight me next Saturday ... what else does he have to do? Is there a wine-tasting at a race track or something?"

Sonnen took another jab at Jones -- making light of his DUI bust.

In the end, Chael insists Jon can run ... but he can't hide ... saying they WILL eventually cross paths in the octagon.

"All he is doing is delaying the inevitable."

"Is there a wine-tasting at a race track or something?"

LOL. Freaking priceless. Chael is the most entertaining guy in MMA by far.

At the end of all fights, when the interviewer asks the winner, who do you want to fight next, the answer is always, 'I will fight anyone at any time'. Ummm... I guess this isnt the case with this guy. Hmmm

other than a VERY short list of fighters...the only person making money is Dana White... these poor goons hoping for riches only end up with battered bodies and miserable faces...not to mention the attractive cauliflower ears... no one will remember but a few...

Shut up. Clearly Jones wasn't training hard due to him having a fight in October and his legal issues. Would you risk a loss to get ready for a fight on short notice AND risk serious injury? Cmon, clearly Sonnen was ready to go because he actually head a fight coming up...child please, he ain't their slave...

The pull-out method never goes over well with UFC fans

This is Chael Sonnen trying to hype up the situation so that the match will happen. But Sonnen has absolutely zero chance of beating Jones and doesn't even deserve to be in the same ring with him. White terminates fighter contracts all the time, and if anyone deserved to be cut from the UFC, it's Chael Sonnen. His performance against Silva in the rematch was disgraceful. If Dana White is worried about the fans, he should issue them all refunds for the money fans paid to see Silva-Sonnen II, a fight in which Sonnen basically just quit .

Chael 'roid rage' Sonnen just finished stealing money from UFC fans with that pathetic performance (losing) afainst Silva... he has no chance against Jones.

The true douchebag is Dana White. His attempt to fleece the people who have paid for a 1st class event, with a 2nd rate main event was a rip-off.

Kudos to Jones for caring more about the 'product' then the boss does!!!!!

Wasn't Sonnen supposed to quit the UFC after he lost to Silva a 2nd time? Guess that was just his mouth writing checks he couldn't actually cash.

How many times Silva will have to KO him until he realizes he's just a bigmouth loser and no one takes him seriously anymore?

Chael is all about cheap polemic and fight him will not increase your name at UFC anymore. Serious fighters are avoiding him now. At the beginning it was funny. Now it's just lame.

The only people that take fights on such short notice, like this 8 day notice,are people that need the fight. Jones doesn't need the fight and has too much to lose to climb into the ring against a good fighter that he hasn't prepared for.

On the other hand, Sonnen has nothing to lose because if he loses, he is still the number 2 middle weight.
