Jon Jones May Fight Chael Sonnen Sometime in the Near Future

Jon Jones May Fight Chael Sonnen Sometime in the Near Future

By now, you know the recent history shared by Jon "Bones" Jones and Chael Sonnen. At UFC 151, Jones was supposed to fight Dan Henderson. But, a knee injury forced Henderson to withdraw from the match, so UFC president Dana White tried to save the PPV event by instead pairing Jones and Sonnen. However, Jones refused to take the fight on short notice, White got pissed at him for doing so, and the rest is, well, history.

It sounds like Jones is having second thoughts, though. Although he's currently rehabbing an injured elbow, he took to his Twitter account last night to say that he might be open to fighting Sonnen after all sometime in the near future. Er, maybe.

Are you over this fight at this point? We aren't. If anything, the recent history of Jones and Sonnen only makes it more appealing to us. Bring it on, fellas.
