Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones finally broke his silence on Thursday, just two days after USADA announced that his B sample came back positive for the steroid, Turinbol. Jones denied ever using steroids and swore by his children and his God.
Jones was stripped of the UFC Light Heavyweight title after the California State Athletic Commission changed his win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 to a No-Contest. The fight was changed after Jones failed a USADA test which was taken the day before the scheduled fight. Jones test came back positive for Turinbol.
Jones also tested positive for a banned substance prior to UFC 200, which was traced to a tainted male enhancement supplement that Jones took.
USADA will have an arbitration hearing for Jones, who could be facing up to a four-year suspension.
