Sonnen: Jones is great, but I’m greater

Friday, April 26, 2013

Ariel Helwani: Well Chael, from where I was standing, it sounded like the crowd was booing Jon a helluva lot more than they were booing you, what did you make of that?

Chael Sonnen: I don’t ask the crowd for their approval and I don’t give a damn either way.

Ariel Helwani: Did it surprise you?

Chael Sonnen: It surpised me based off proximity. I know he’s a local guy. I thought he’d have a little more support out there

Ariel Helwani: When you look at this fight, what do you think is Jon Jones’ greatest weakness, what’s the hole in his game your going to look to expose?

Chael Sonnen: You know I think Jon Jones is great, I just know I’m greater. I think Jon’s the best, but I’m better. And this is where we seperate in the octagaon tomorrow night, the better from the best. He’s a tough guy, he’s got a lot of skills, but so do I. He’s the champion of the crappiest division in the UFC, I’m the silver medalist from the toughest division in the UFC.
