Jon Jones: ‘I would never do steroids, I put that on my children’
Jon Jones may be facing a lengthy suspension for failing a drug test but he insists he has not used steroids and seemed quite serious about it.
After defeating Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 to regain the light heavyweight belt, news broke that Jones tested positive for the steroid Turinabol after his weigh-in the day the day before the fight. Despite the test results, Jones says he would never use steroids and went as far as to say he “puts that on his children.”
Dude the truth is I would never do steroids, I put that on my children and I put that on my Heavenly Father https://t.co/i8EEbrQU5x

This is the second failed test of Jones’ career. He previously was banned for one year. Jones could now be facing a four-year suspension if the maximum penalty is enforced by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
UFC announced it would reinstate Daniel Cormier as its light heavyweight champion
