Sonnen stated that Jones' unapologetic behavior towards his long-time coaches Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn was "disgusting."

"Jon put a tweet on this and he deleted it and it was just disgusting. The tweet was disgusting and he said, 'it hurts really bad to have one of my coaches who I respect so much turn away from me, for the rest of the coaches going for that fight with me, we continue,' and then he deleted it. The reason that tweet is disgusting is he used the word team. You have the most selfish guy in sport using the word team when convenient..."
