ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Say what you will about Jon Jones, but it's rare to see the UFC's light heavyweight champion caught in the theatrical world of ‘beef' quite like he is with UFC 182 rival Daniel Cormier. In fact, only twice before have we even seen Jones approach something like this. First with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, though that relationship always seemed more snippy than anything. The second time was Rashad Evans, and that one was bad. A jilted former training partner who bickered endlessl read news >>

Well, somehow word got back to UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy that Chael Sonnen recently had some words for him. Earlier this week Sonnen chided Kennedy for being upset over his controversial UFC 178 loss to Yoel Romero, less affectionately known as 'stoolgate.' Sonnen called Kennedy a 'cranky and bitter son of a b***h' before telling him to 'shut up' and to 'give Romero his 15 minutes and walk away.' Unsurprisingly, Kennedy doesn't approve.
