Jon Jones breaks his silence on latest positive result for steroids

Daniel Cormier

According to sports analyst, Jones is the only UFC fighter that been ever removed from his championship title because of disciplinary reasons.

The newly minted UFC light heavyweight champion today thanked fans for their support and urged them not to beat up on Jones (21-1-1 MMA, 15-1-1 UFC), who was stripped of the belt after confirmation of his failed drug test at UFC 214.

No punishments have been handed out by USADA yet, other than a provincial suspension after the drug test failure was announced. The disgraced former champion is potentially looking at a suspension of up to four years, not to mention possible fines and loss of income from being unable to compete or represent sponsors.

Jones' team have previously claimed that a dubious supplement is likely the cause for the positive results. Then, he had to deal with the fact that Jones was flagged for an anti-doping violation after having tested positive for steroids. I tend to think so, but maybe that's just me. You never know what's gonna come your way. One thing that has been wonderful is the support from you the fans.


"I think it's insane", Cormier said.

Jon Jones is denying that he intentionally took steroids. "I was down and some may have kicked me, but the majority of you showed compassion and love", Cormier continued.

"This is a death sentence", Cormier said. At 30 years of age, it would be the most hard challenge of his career for Jones to attempt to return to the Octagon after four years on the sideline.
