UFC 159’s Chael Sonnen continued his particular brand of trash talk last night on UFC Tonight. The boisterous former middleweight contender made the most of his final appearance on the show before Saturday’s showdown, as he issued his “final message” to UFC lightweight champion Jon Jones.
“When I step off that plane in New Jersey, there’s a new family in town, the Sonnen family and I’m the new Don. I’m taking over that state. And my first order of business is to beat the bejesus out of Jon Jones. Jon Jones, you will be reminded the hard way why you never piss off a gangster.”
UFC 159 is set for the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The card will be headlined by a matchup of The Ultimate Fighter 17 coaches. Middleweight rivals Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher will clash in the evening’s co-main event. UFC 159 takes place this Saturday.
