UFC light heavyweight and The Ultimate Fighter 17 coach Chael Sonnen appeared on UFC Tonight to address the fans about his upcoming title shot versus UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 159. Sonnen was back in full promotion mode and the boisterous fighter addressed the fans, and the champ, in an entertaining rant.
“This is a public address from the people’s champion himself. I will come on stage, I will sell the tickets. I’m the highest paid fighter in the history of the UFC and I’m the biggest draw that this industry has ever seen. On 4/27, Chael Sonnen Promotions, in conjunction with Zuffa, LLC will bring to you the biggest fight of the year, the biggest light heavyweight fight of all time. The young Jon Jones at last will have what every young fighter dreams about: A chance to go one-on-one, to actually share the people’s Octagon, with Chael Sonnen. And he will be reminded the hard way what you already know: When you’re the greatest fighter in the world today, they have a name for you, they don’t call you a great fighter, they call you Chael Sonnen.”
