Chael Sonnen has used Ronda Rousey's reported arrival in the UFC as a chance to poke fun at Rampage Jackson.

Sonnen, who often likes to mock the former UFC light-heavyweight champion, is currently filming the 17th season of The Ultimate Fighter alongside Jon Jones.

Rousey was the big news of the week as she reportedly signed to fight in the UFC in 2013, although official confirmation from the promotion is yet to arrive.

Nevertheless, Sonnen reacted to the news by saying to TMZ: "I'd like to congratulate Ronda Rousey on becoming a pioneer in this sport. It's well deserved and overdue.

"Looks like Mitt Romney has a new favourite fighter and Rampage Jackson has another opponent he can't beat."
