UFC contender Chael Sonnen has intimate knowledge of middleweight champion Anderson Silva’s athletic prowess after suffering two losses to the pound-for-pound great, both by way of finish. He also knows a thing or two about light heavyweight king Jon Jones after working alongside him on TUF 17 and analyzing film while preparing for an April 27 tilt against “Bones”.
Sonnen was recently asked by FOX Sports Radio to weigh in on which of the two he felt was more talented and, in the outspoken star’s opinion, there’s hardly a comparison.
“I think there’s a big gap between them. I think that Jon Jones is considerably better, I think he’s the best talent our sport has ever seen.”
“Jon comes out there with something new every time. Some trick that it appears he’s making up. Stuff I’ve never seen.”
