On a recent episode of UFC Tonight, Chael Sonnen recited a poem he had written for Jon Jones. The pair are scheduled to fight at UFC 159 on April 27.

I got a call one day from Dana, he said 'Chael, I'm putting you to work.'
'You see, I overpaid for this light heavy, who I now realize is a jerk.'
'He's been winning fights, but not with brains or with brawn.
'And his matches and his one-armed cartwheels are making the whole crowd yawn.
'I mean, nobody's coming to see him in living rooms or in bars.
'Why don't you send this guy to Cirque de Soleil, or Dancing with the Stars?'
He handed me his wallet, his ATM card and pin number too.
He said, 'Chael, whatever's in the account, take it, it's all for you.'
I thought for a moment and I said, 'I'll tell you what, Uncle D.
'For you and the fans, this one's on me.'
So I went and did some homework, I got some tapes of his fights.
I suggest you all give them a try, if you're having trouble sleeping at night.
They tell me he's good, but I know that can't be true,
I saw him get armbarred by Vitor, and he's 52!
He's so boring he made Machida fall asleep.
The snoozefest he had against Rashad, or beating up on Bonnar, who's older than God?
Look, here's the truth, believe me it is.
Don't even mention Ryan Bader, he lost to Tito Ortizz!
Jon, I'm coming to New Jersey, because I've got a job to do.
I'm a fully-loaded cannon, boy, and I'm pointed right at you.
A little advice, go get in your car and hit another tree.
Do whatever you gotta do to stay away Jon, you don't want to fight me.

Jones responded not with poetry, but with tweets.

I hope Jones makes the match interesting and doesn't use elbows or knee kicks, it would be nice to see what he does with out them and Sonnen is the perfect person for it

Biggest joke of a title fight in a long time.  I hope fans never forget that.

I'm just glad that this will be the LAST time Chael ever headlines an event. He knows that's the case so he's gonna talk a lot of shit to sell a lot of tickets.

I'm looking forward to the Chael Sonnen era to be over. Phone Post

I have to admit, I was bored by this ridiculous fight, at first. But Chael is the best at what he does. Now he's actually got me excited about this fight. I can't help it. I just can't wait to watch Sonnen get his ass kicked.

Honestly.. I have a hard time believing that even if Chael has a horrifically embarrassing loss that it would be the last time he ever headlines an event.

The funniest part of it though is that a Nick Diaz fan is calling someone else's fan base delusional

The UFC had two options with Jones:

1. Keep throwing hitters at him until someone beat him.

2. Give him some gimme fights, get him on TUF and build his star power a little.

Matching him with Sonnen will do wonders for Jones' exposure. Chael even alludes to it in his poem. Phone Post

Nick had a waaaaayyyyy better chance at the upset than Sonnen.  Unlike Chael, Nick is actually a threat to end the fight on the ground or on the feet.

 

Chael, on the other hand, has one finish in the UFC and his entire game revolves around taking guys down and grinding them out.  That's literally his only shot - to take down the athletic freak that is JBJ and grind out a decision victory over 5 rounds. Meanwhile, Jones has never been taken down and has faced quality wrestlers like Bader, Rashad, Matyushenko, Hamill, and Jake O'Brien.

Do you see him outstriking Jones? No.  Do you see him submitting Jones off his back? I don't. Do you see him taking Jones down? Tbh, I don't see that either.

It will be an absolute massacre, and anyone who thinks otherwise is plain wrong.

Sonnen is going to do the one thing non of jones' past opponents have done. He will move forward the whole time, not let bones use his range and pick him apart. I think fight will be a lot more interesting than most people believe. Phone Post
