Covington Talks Jon Jones’ “Roid Rage”

Colby Covington has been known for speaking his mind, whether it be about Brazil, Joe Rogan, or his old college roommate Jon Jones, the welterweight contender is always ready to give a quote to someone.

While doing media this week for his fight against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225, Covington told Jim Norton and Sam Roberts about his experience as Jon Jones roommate.

This is not the first time that Covington would talk about living with the former UFC light heavyweight champion, but “Chaos” would admit that Jones used steroids while they both attended Iowa Central Community College.

“He just started doing steroids and always freaking had roid rage,” Covington told The Jim & Sam Show. “He’d come home and he’d yell at me, ‘Oh what the f*** are you doing Colby, do the dishes’ and he would just like freak out.”

“He was wrestling at 197 [pounds], he was a national champ in junior college and he was trying to move up and go to heavyweight… So he thought he had to do a cycle of roids and I just lost a lot of respect for him. He started partying a lot, doing Ecstasy, doing all these drugs and the rest of history. He’s been doing them since college.”

Jones, who has had a history of issues with drugs and PEDS, is currently awaiting a sentence from USADA for a failed 2017 drug test. Jones could face up to four years for his second offense from the UFC’s drug testing partner.
