Jon Jones, a former UFC light heavyweight champion failed an in-competition drug test at UFC 214. Due to that failed drug test, Jones has been provisionally suspended by USADA.
Jones must also settle his differences with California State Athletic Commission, charged with regulating UFC 214 and his hearing is scheduled for Feb 27 to find out the severity of his finds and possible suspensions.
Jones defeated Daniel Cormier by third-round TKO in the main event of UFC 214 on July 29 to regain the title but was overturned to a no contest due to positive anabolic steroid Turinabol.
Jon ‘Bones’Jones has never been one to pull punches. Even if they are figurative and in the form of tweets. On Friday, Jones sent a message via social media, to his detractors and he definitely wasn’t mincing words.
Let me talk to my haters. Blame my greatness on things you simply will never understand. Hard work. Passion. Suck one

“Let me talk to my haters,” Jones wrote on Twitter. “Blame my greatness on things you simply will never understand. Hard work. Passion. Suck one.”
Not really a lot of room for interpretation in that message.
Jones’ name has been the talk of the town, more recently thanks to his management team speaking out about his suspension with hopes of seeing Jon Jones back in the UFC Octagon before the end of 2018.
Jones has repeatedly denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs.
