Jon Jones takes aim at Chael Sonnen, ‘biggest criticism’ for alleged assault on hotel


Jon Jones isn’t going to miss his opportunity to bury Chael Sonnen.

On Monday, Jones popped up on Twitter to address the recent assault lawsuit brought against Sonnen, which stems from an alleged incident on Dec. 18 in which Sonnen is accused of attacking a couple at a hotel in Las Vegas. According to MMA Fighting’s details, Sonnen allegedly attacked Dr. Christopher Stellpflug “without provocation”, punched Julie and fought numerous security guards trying to stop him.

Jones has been through a lot of legal trouble over the years, and Sonnen is often the one to blame. Jones retweeted a tweet from a Twitter fan mocking Sonnen’s punditry and quoted it.

This couldn’t be more accurate imagine having someone at your job who couldn’t hold your jockstrap being your biggest critic.

S*** was irritating

He followed up shortly after with a tweet that was seemingly another crack at Sonnen, this time apparently suggesting that Sonnen’s alleged misbehavior is the result of karmic justice.

It’s interesting how sometimes the people who are praying for your downfall and wishing bad on you end up receiving everything they wished on you.

Sonnen is being sued by the Stellpflugs for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Jones also recently ran into trouble at a Las Vegas hotel on Sept. 24, 2021, the same night that he was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. After being summoned to Caesars Palace, Jones was taken into custody and charged with domestic battery as well as felony disabling or injuring a vehicle. On Dec. 16, Jones struck a deal in Nevada court, receiving a misdemeanor sentence of $25-to-$250 after pleading no contest to charges of injuring or tampering with a vehicle plus an additional $750 in restitution to the victim of the property damage. The domestic battery charge was dismissed.

The bad blood between Jones and Sonnen dates back years to when the two served as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 17 and then their subsequent grudge match at UFC 159 in April 2013 that Jones won by first-round TKO.
