Not too many people out there saw this one coming, but the coaches for season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter have been confirmed, and it will be Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones coaching against former middleweight title contender, Chael Sonnen.
After Dan Henderson had to pull out of UFC 151 due to an injury, Sonnen offered to step up and face Jones on short notice. Jones, however, declined the fight, and the trash talk from Sonnen began.
Sonnen was going after Jones on Twitter and any other medium he could to try and get the fight with Jones. It appears all that has worked, as Sonnen will fight Jones for the light heavyweight title on April 27.
Let's see who's got the edge.
