- Jon Jones recently spoke about Chael Sonnen's honesty when explaining his reasons for being on the banned substances that caused a failed drug test. Here is what Jones had to say…
"I watched him on UFC Tonight. I thought he handled it very responsibly. I really admired him being vulnerable and telling the world about the situation with his wife and things like that.
I've been very vocal about not respecting steroid users and guys who cheat. But Chael almost gained an exception with the way he handled it and the way he was so honest and upfront with the fans and all the fighters about the whole situation.
It was never good for the sport to see something like this. But in a way, it was a win for Chael because he got some things off his chest and just be real about everybody."
