The UFC will be holding a conference call to officially announce light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen as the coaches for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter. Audio will be available for a live stream which begins at 4:00 pm ET courtesy of the UFC.
Sonnen is a trash-talking genius and has already attempted to get in the head of Jones during an appearance yesterday on UFC Tonight.
“I don’t know. Here’s the bottom line, he should not have been pressured into this. I did everything I could to warn this guy,” Sonnen said. “I told him ‘Hey I’m coming to the division’ and he should have packed up and left it. He talked about going to heavyweight and he should have done it because now he’s waited too long and the man has arrived.
“Listen, here is what you need to know. This show [The Ultimate Fighter] has some tremendous young talent on it. I will be taking 50 percent of that talent and teaching them how to fight. The other half is going to be taught how to be selfish, entitled brats like Jones. The good news is that when it is all over, I’m sure Coach Jones will throw a hell of an after-party.
“What you need to know, Todd, and what Jon already knows, is that I got the biggest arms, I got the greatest charm and I do the most harm. I’m better than Jon Jones, I’m better than Sean Combs and I’m better than John Holmes. And little Jon Jon, the little leprechaun, has my belt I’m coming to take.”
Expect some of that same brilliance from Sonnen on the call today so be sure to join us for the conference call! It is sure to provide fireworks.
