Jon Jones UFC 145 WorkoutsUFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones on Wednesday apologized for accusing Chael Sonnen of career-long steroid abuse.

Jones said on Tuesday night’s episode of UFC Tonight that he wasn’t buying into Sonnen’s trash talk to hype their upcoming fight, but maybe that wasn’t quite accurate.

Shortly after saying that him “talking trash really does nothing for the fight,” Jones proceeded to explain a recent comment declaring Sonnen lacked a championship soul by accusing him of career-long steroid use.

“Chael Sonnen is a guy, people know he’s done steroids throughout his entire career,” Jones stated. “Probably the reason 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 championship soul.”

Backtracking on that comment, Jones on Wednesday apologized on Twitter, saying, “I had no right to accuse Chael of being a career long steroid user, I apologize.”

Jones and Sonnen square off in the UFC 159 main event on Saturday, April 27 in New Jersey.
