Fans Shred UFC Twitter Account After Jon Jones Post

Despite his impressive career and performance in the sport, Jon Jones has been criticised more than he was celebrated as a mixed martial artist due to his failed drug tests. 

 Twitter post asking who should come next on Bones’ rival list.

The 31-year-old’s doping case stemmed from a July 2017 sample collection where he saw his successful title defence against Daniel Cormier turn into a no-contest. USADA, the UFC’s anti-doping partner, tested him positive for Turinabol metabolites and suspended him accordingly.

After more than a year of layoff, Jones was able to secure a rematch against Gustafsson for the light heavyweight title vacated by champ-champ DC. However, authorities detected another abnormality on his drug test results, moving the fight from Las Vegas to Los Angeles at the last minute.

They reportedly found a trace amount of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone (DHCMT), or turinabol, in Jones’ system, the same substance that led him to the 15-month suspension. Despite this, the recently-hailed champion defended himself for the minimal amount found.

At the pre-fight press conference for UFC 232, Jones and Gustafsson led themselves in a heated argument on the PED-related controversy. Bones slammed the second-ranked light heavyweight for believing that the small amount of steroids would affect Jones’ performance.
