Jon Jones: I’ve Never Taken Steroids
Less than 24 hours after he was stripped of his UFC light heavyweight title, 48 hours after his ‘b’ sample was shown to be positive for Turinabol a steroid commonly found in cattle, Jon Jones maintains his innocence.
On twitter the now former champion replied to a tweet asking him to just be honest about his PED use. Jones responded with…
Dude the truth is I would never do steroids, I put that on my children and I put that on my Heavenly Father https://t.co/i8EEbrQU5x

Jones has maintained this claiming going back to 2016 where he received a one-year suspension prior to UFC 200 when he tested positive for clomiphene and letrozole, two substances banned for their potential application in steroid cycles. Jones and his team explained that incident as coming about due to Jones using a tainted sex pill.
The New York is in the midst of filing an appeal, if his appeal is denied or he loses it will result in a four year ban from competition for being a repeat offender.
