On UFC Tonight, Jon Jones appeared to get into the hype game in his own way. Jones had previously stated that his upcoming opponent Chael Sonnen lacked a “champion’s soul”. When asked to clarify, he replied with this;
“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.”
It is worth noting that Sonnen has never tested positive for steroids, but rather failed a test due to elevated levels of testosterone following his loss to Anderson Silva in 2010. The test showed a higher than normal level that often, but not always, the result of steriod use.
