Jon Jones Apologizes for Sonnen Steroid Comments

The dynamic between Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen is not a clear one. At times, the competitors seemed to be courteous on the Ultimate Fighter. But recently Jones has had enough of being cordial with Sonnen who has done his signature job of using his words to excite people for his fight.

Jones let his emotions get the better of him when he recently tweeted out:

“Chael Sonnen is a guy who has done steroids throughout his whole career. It’s probably the reason his testosterone is low now”

Sonnen who has in the past gotten TUE exemptions for testosterone replacement therapy due to low testosterone levels. Jones claimed that he wouldn’t do any talking or promoting for this fight, and even went as far as to keep quiet during an interview at the TUF 17 Finale. Jones saw the problem with that statement and apologized for it.

“I had no right to accuse chael of being a career long steroid user I apologize. See what had happened was….”

As it seems to happen before every one of his fights, Jones is chomping at the bit just to get this fight going, because it’s the build up that he struggles with. The fight itself, usually a cakewalk for Jones.

    Probably because he’s young..I think people forget how young Jon Jones still is as incredibly talented etc as he is. Many people say things without thinking and backtrack or wish they hadn’t after for whatever reason and that’s people who’ve been on this Earth a lot longer and with a lot more life experience than Jon Jones. He’s only human and forever learning about life like we all are..give the guy a break and enjoy watching him do what he does a mma fighter/champion.

    Yeah, he is a year older than i am. I am 22 and I just got out of my parents house a few years ago. The kid is super young. I can’t imagine how i would handle something like that, being a megastar. I say shit i regret all the time, or i dont think things through. I am still figuring out exactly who i am and yadda yadda yadda. I cant imagine him not having these same issues on top of all the media and fighting and issues that are a part of his job.
