Jon Jones reportedly asked Dana White to have Chael Sonnen stop harassing him

How much did Chael Sonnen get inside Jon Jones‘ head with all his trash talk the past few weeks? Apparently far enough to prompt an uncomfortable Jones to ask UFC president Dana White to tell Sonnen to stop. That’s according to a report from The Wrestling Observer.

The Wrestling Observer (via Bloody Elbow) reported that “Jones was very upset after Chael began calling him out and mocking him on Twitter, going as far as to contact White and ask him to tell Chael to stop.”

We have no idea if White told Sonnen to stop, but Chael’s Twitter account has been quiet since the 25th. From August 15-23 he sent 10 tweets, and all 10 were directed at Jones. He crafted some fake tweets that were intended to make them seem like they were sent from Jones to Sonnen, such as this one:

Sonnen also sent more direct tweets about Jones like this one:

Say Dana White told Sonnen to cool it, which doesn’t sound like something he would advocate since he loves when his fighters use social media to promote themselves and the sport, there’s no way he would do it again after the way Jones screwed over the UFC for UFC 151. And how is Jones’ relationship with White? He’s no longer following the UFC boss on Twitter after being ripped to shreds.

Jones is losing whatever popularity he had by the second. This is getting ugly.

UPDATE: Both Jones and White have denied the report.
