Perhaps we'll get that Jon Jones-Chael Sonnen fight after all.

As any mixed martial arts fan who hasn't been living under a rock the past few months could tell you, Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, refused Sonnen as a short-notice replacement opponent at UFC 151 after his scheduled challenger, Dan Henderson, dropped out due to a knee injury.

In the aftermath of Jones' decision, UFC president Dana White pulled the plug on the Sept. 1 event, the first fight-card cancelation in Zuffa history.

But on Thursday night, Jones sent out a hint on Twitter that he's coming around on the notion of fighting the mouthy former middleweight.

"The more I realize how bad the fans want me to fight Sonnen the more I am beginning to disregard whether he deserves it or not," Jones tweeted out to his nearly 483,000 followers.

UFC probably sent Jon Jones the PPV figures from UFC 152. He looked at them and said fuck that. I'm fighting Chael. Just business.

Man this fight would not be close...I would rather see a fight not a beatdown....

First of all Chael has no area he beats Jones...And he loses in reach...its just a pay per view thing...I knew it wouldnt be long before the freak show fights would happen and the characters start coming out like WWE...

When guys have a real dislike its cool they fight but with Chael its just a joke and then when he gets beat down he will come and want to hug it out....

Jonesy-Bonesy-Schmozy ain't ready to fight a hardened criminal / GANGSTER......

Hey Jon, while you continue to dodge me, go out and buy my new game with your Old English beer bottles and see if you can make it to level 2

And another thing.....You don't GIVE. I TAKE. Remembah that, Bonesie-Boy.

I stole before (allegedly) and I'll STEAL your youth....forget Medium Rare....you can make it WELL-DONE

i honestly cannot get excited by any contender at lhw right now who comes up against jones. There seems to be plenty of guys waiting for gsp and anderson but there is no one clear at lhw who poses a threat right now.

Sounds like his agent is now handling his twitter account.

I still want to see Hendo get his chance at Bones for Jones' next fight. The timing should be right and there is still unfinished business for both. With Hendo's age we wont have the honor to see him fight too much longer. I wont be happy with any other opponent for Jones' next opponent.

You may soon become unhappy, as the winner could very well be Machida in Chida vs Hendo.
