On tonight's episode of UFC Tonight on Fuel TV, UFC lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones spoke out about his feelings coming into the fight and why he has refrained from playing into Sonnen's pre-fight trash talk campaign:

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones’ response to Chael Sonnen’s comments on Twitter and UFC TONIGHT: “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.”

Sad but Jones is right. I don't feel like he needs to say it out loud but no one talks about it so i understand that. Sonnen's lack of testosterone comes from we all know what. Medical cases of abnormal low test are very few and far between. What are the chances 40%+ of those do MMA for a living and are buddies (thinking Chael and Marquardt)?
I feel Jones is trying hard to antagonize Sonnen but the steroids remarks aren't helping. Others should be doing that and fighting for a cleaner sport.

Jones is somewhat right...and his confidence is appropriate...just a shame he didn't have it last time Chael was booked to fight him.

and the "talking trash does nothing for a fight". well, he's wrong about that...when Chael does it...it turns the fight into a money maker...i suppose he's right when he says his trash talking is irrelevant...that part appear to be true. of course he's a legit bad ass so he shouldn't need to talk.

Chaelismyhero - And new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion of the world...

(I know you read that in Bruce Buffer's voice.)

Almost as funny as Chaels spinning back fist against Silva in their rematch.

Chael is in his head plain and simple...this is just admitting it that's all

At this point I don't think chael's trash talk is helping to sell the fight. Everyone saw his real personality on TUF and he's even admitted to liking jones as a person.

If he wanted to really sell it he should have been acting like a complete jackass on TUF so people would genuinely want to see him get his ass kicked. Phone Post 3.0

Jon is 100% right.

Sonnen has been caught cheating before.

Does not deserve this title shot.

Tell 'em the truth, Bones.

It would be kinda neat to see Chael win.. actually to see Jones lose because he doesn't seem to get the "game"

He can literally finish Sonnen when and however he wants to, so I don't see the point in the champ promoting a circus fight. This is time for him to heal his elbow and possibly move to HW. Chael is top 5 @ 185.. maybe top 25 @ 205 but who really know.. this fight sucks!

He's an amazing fighter, but a horrible promoter. Always trying to come up with these enlightening one liners.

This is his 2nd fight in a row to take on a MW. Jones could be at HW if he wanted. Sorry, but not even Chael can troll me into this PPV.

IMO if the best training partner to simulate Jones that Chael could find was Luc from TUF, he's in for a long night. (Not trying to bash Luc and not implying it's easy to find a fighter to simulate Jones.)

I accept what Jones says, but that is just me.
I have never bought a PPV based on the hype. I deliberately did not buy one because of hype, because I thought Chael did not deserve to be next in line. After seeing Chael on TUF I like the guy and understand he does it for his career but that does not mean the guys faking the dislike are going to sway my purchase.

I will say I don't watch all the PPV's because I have to choose how I spend my money. I almost enjoy the banter on the UG after the fight

I really don't understand why two guys at the top of the game can't like and respect each other and put on a great fight.

 

It's work.  You should love what you do and work hard.

 

After work, have a beer and appreciate the shitkicking you put on each other.

 

No reason for manufactured hate.

Cruz does alright answering questions, but somebody needs to save him from asking questions in interviews.

Bones made Chael look stupid by not saying much. Chael is like a joke speaking next to a martial artist.

You know what does nothing for the fight, saying absolutely nothing at all
