Jones: Sonnen on steroids his whole career

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

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.
