Jon Jones called Dana to tell Chael to stop picking on him.

In light of the recent mess that was the cancelation of UFC 151, we still have yet to see the end of the aftermath. Not too many people came out of this looking great, except maybe Chael Sonnen, the unlikely "hero" in this story. Some people have come out of this cast in very deprecatory ways, few more than UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones. In a recent article from The Wrestling Observer (Subscription required), there's yet another piece of information that will add fuel to the Jon Jones fire:

Jones was very upset after Chael began calling him out and mocking him on Twitter, going as far as to contact White and ask him to tell Chael to stop

Even if you're an avid Jones supporter, it's hard to cast this in a positive light. Sure, it may not always be fun to be the butt of ten thousand Chael Sonnen jokes, but that's not something you can just ask Dana White to stop. It just seems childish for a professional athlete to respond so oddly to a little bit of heat from a possible competitor.

Also from the article, we see more of Jones, as his recent appearance on a radio show is analyzed, and what Jon said makes him look like a hypocrite:

About a week before this all went down, he went on a radio show and talked about how Chael was undeserving of the fight coming off the loss to Anderson Silva, and that he was disrespectful and not the type of person he'd want to give a title shot to anyway. The host noted that Chael wouldn't be able to take Bones down, and unlike Henderson, also a wrestler, he didn't possess the power punch standing and wasn't a finisher. The host told Jones to take the paycheck and shut the guy up. At that point Jones said yes, you're right, I'll fight Chael any time, any where.

There is hardly a positive way to look at this. Jones clearly says he'd do something he doesn't end up doing, despite the situation providing him the ability. Though he may be one of the greatest fighters to ever live, Jones constantly trips up with words, saying things he doesn't really mean, or things he can't or won't follow up on. It's hard to watch, because we're seeing such a great fighter open himself up for ridicule based on the things he says. Hopefully, this situation will be over soon, and everyone can just put this behind them. It's been a pretty rough week for many people, especially Jon Jones.


For a fighter this guy couldnt be a bigger bitch. This is just like someone that would snitch on people in school.

I hope this is not true as Jon Jones is weak mentally.

He is just a puppet. He lacks the intelligence to make collected decisions.

This has made my day lol, sorry I'm fully on board for the JBJ-hate. The guy just can't be likeable IMO.

wow, I never hated Jones but never liked him either. This certainly won't be helping his cause any.

Well i guess when you cant snitch to the teacher anymore the next best thing is your boss.

He isnt only a bitch for a fighter. He is a bitch for pretty much anyone... in middle school they would call him a bitch for this.

Good god he can fight though. If it wasnt for that....

The guy destroyed Rampage, Shogun, Machida, beat Rashad and still lacks confidence. The guy with this kind of skills should just sit, relax and prepare for his next fight. Why doesn't he ignore Sonnen?
