Jon Jones Tweets Message to His Haters
Jon Jones is arguably one of the greatest fighters in MMA, but his legacy is forever questioned due to personal issues outside of the cage, as well as two failed drug tests. Some in the MMA community feel that Jones is only as successful as he is because of steroids.
As reported by MMA Fighting, Jones took to Twitter on Feb. 16, posting a message in response to haters questioning his achievements throughout his MMA career.
Let me talk to my haters. Blame my greatness on things you simply will never understand. Hard work. Passion. Suck one

After various delays, Jones faced Daniel Cormier for the UFC Light Heavyweight Title last summer at UFC 214. Jones won the fight, and won back the title, with a third-round knockout, but Jones failed both his pre-fight and post-fight drug tests. The result was overturned to a No Contest, and the title was given back to Cormier.
The 30-year-old Jones meets with the California State Athletic Commission on Feb. 27 for a hearing, and he is awaiting arbitration for his case with USADA. Jones faces up to a four-year suspension from MMA.
