Chael Sonnen

Jon Jones is an

'Entitled, Bratty Kid'

8/24/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

Yes TMZ, you guys used "tearing into" instead of "slammed"! Progress! Surprised Jones turned down the fight,I've never seen that in the UFC. Chael talks a lot of mess, hopefully he can really back it up if they do meet eventually.

Chael will never learn he continues to talk crap and then gets his butt handed to him. i thought he was going to retire after getting his butt kicked from Silva

Why is Sonnen in line to fight Jon Jones ? Sonnen lost his last 2 title fights and was suspended for a banned for substance. In addition the fight is in a higher weight class then he fights! Im unsure why people think Chael is funny ...he isn't.

Whew, he's hot! I'd love to see a male MMA fighter go up against Ronda Rousey! Maybe a man could actually provide a challenge for Rousey.

I love to watch Jon 'Bones' Jones fight. He has been a pretty entertaining fighter (minus his last fight which he played it way too safe). But I think he is a spoiled bratty a$$ however I don't blame him for not taking the fight on 8 days against a totally different fighter than Henderson. I'm also glad they canceled. I've been watching UFC since UFC 6 (long before time limits and you could head butt anytime - anywhere), but they are becoming OVER SATURATED. Two PPV a month? Come on...too much.

My hair stylist in Eugene, Oregon, used to date Chael Sonnen. This boy would be wise to get out of the public eye. There's a closet full of nasty little secrets that are just waiting to come out (emphasis on the LITTLE).

The issue is if Jones takes the fight with Chael, he is ensuring that Chael will get a big payoff even if he looses and that isn't something that he deserves. Plus he's a bad person, I wouldn't want to help Chael get money. I'd love to see a Jones punch Chaels head right off. He's bad news. Jones is a better class of person and fighter.

First off he was not suppose to fight Chael. The original fight was Jon Jones Vs Dan Henderson Henderson hurt himself and pulled out of the fight 8 days before the fight was scheduled. The UFC then proposed Jon Fight Chael on 8 day notice the catch Chael is the sparring partner of Dan Henderson so he has been training to also fight Jon Jones which means Jon would be at an disadvantage since Chael would be prepared for him but Jon would not.

Sonne is a known cheater. He uses steroids and got the dog snot beat out of him twice by Anderson Silva. Why he was even a consideration for Jon Jones is a disgrace. Get it together UFC/Dana White
