Reigning UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones refused to acknowledge Chael Sonnen’s (pictured) existence during a live face-to-face interview a couple of weeks ago, but Jones had not choice to Tuesday as the two appeared as guests on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
They were sitting opposite of each other at the desk, so Jones had no other option than to look in Sonnen’s direction. Otherwise, it would have been really weird.
It was a typical interview, nothing to write home about. It is interesting, however, that Sonnen continues to try to befriend Jones instead of unleashing his trademark trash talk on the youngster leading up to their fight.
This won’t be the only time fans will see “Bones” and Uncle Chael on “The Worldwide Leader in Sports,” as they are going through the network’s “car wash” and will appear on numerous ESPN shows throughout the day.
Jones and Sonnen collide this Saturday at UFC 159.
