Jones: Sonnen does deserve a title shot
Chael Sonnen is warming up to Jon Jones, who now admits that the “American Gangster” is deserving of his 205-pound title shot at UFC 159 even though he has not competed in the division since 2005. Yes, 2005 (inside the Octagon).
“I’m going to change my response and for the first time I’m going to say yes. I think Chael does deserve a shot at my title because he asked for it and he begged for it. He made it happen and I’ve definitely beaten pretty much everybody in my weight class and Chael said ‘let me give this guy a run’ so I’m going to say yes, Chael you deserve it.”
