Jones: Sonnen on steroids his whole career

by Chris Palmquist |

On tonight's episode of UFC Tonight, champion Jon Jones threw a lofty allegation at Chael Sonnen, his foe at next Saturday's UFC 159 in Newark, New Jersey:

Jones on his statement that Sonnen lacked a “champion’s soul:” “People know that Chael Sonnen has done steroids throughout his whole career and that’s probably why his testosterone is low now. I don’t think that is the heart or the attitude of a champion, so that’s what I meant when I said he lacks champion’s soul.”

Although he hasn't tested postive specifically for steroids in his career, he did test positive for high levels of testosterone following his 2010 loss to Anderson Silva. The test revealed an abnormal testosterone to estrogen level which is often indicative of steroid use.

does bones NOT realize that Pheals juicing is the reason he has such a large fan base. there are MANY that lack the soul of a champion, that have juiced for years and still burn with envy for those born with heart and nuts.

That was when I realized the Gracie's being a "martial arts" family was absolute bullshit. I am not saying the skill isn't there, I am talking about martial spirit, honor and dignity that they lack. Don't let the gi's fool you: They are shameless self promoting cheats, and probably always have been.

You really think he can't find HQ HGH in his home province, the wild wild west of Canada? There has to be a biker gang somewhere in Quebec that corners that market,tell your "friend" to watch himself. Also, I think GSP could afford some discretion, maybe you take the claims of "big coke dealers" with a grain of *ahem* salt.

Both of your claims are equally baseless. I am not saying you are wrong, and I have noticed the "gut" as well, but also there probably isn't anyone else on the planet (literally) who is following a regimen like GSP's, so we don't really know if his body is the result of a unique training system. That is my point, we don't know, and so tossing around the HGH accusation is irresponsible and premature...who do you think you are, Snowden?

Yeaah... I see you have already forgotten about last septembre when Chael started shittalking Jones out of nowhere, on television, radio, etc. Or Chaels entire UFC career, for that matter.
