That’s where all hell broke loose. Jones was livid and he began posting brutal and nasty tweets aimed at Sonnen and his wife. The tweets which are now deleted show Jones unleashing his fury on Uncle Chael.

Sonnen recently uploaded another video to his YouTube channel reacting to the recent scenario. He claimed that he didn’t know Jones would take it this seriously.

Sonnen hinted that he was just being a troll, like he usually is.

“You take a guy like Jon…He is such a tough guy. Jon can take whatever Chael is gonna dish out, or so I thought.”

Since things didn’t go as planned, Sonnen then justified his stance:

“Jon, I’m a troll. This is what a troll does. A troll comes at you over the internet from several states away where he’s protected in the hope of getting an emotional reaction from you. And he gave it to me! So point, Chael. Couldn’t have succeeded any better but over-performed my own expectations I must tell you. Jon was very upset.”
