    If you can read his quotes and not think he is trash talking, well then you are a stupider man than I. He talks about grace right after he says he is the real winner and accuses his opponent of drug use. He/we is/are lucky/lucky that ESPN didn't take that drug shit and run with it or else 98% of mma coverage on ESPN would be drug scandal nonsense. To me Bones is Will Ferrell as Ricky Bobby, just saying whatever insulting shit he wants, but making sure he says "with all due respect".

    If you aren't noticing that he is also running his mouth a ton then WITH ALL DUE RESPECT you are an exceptionally stupid ass hat.

    Jon Jones tells ESPN he had heard through the grapevine that Chael Sonnen has 'secretly done steroids throughout his career' - Bloody Elbow


    LeBatard asked Jones if he likes Sonnen and Jones answered after a lengthy pause:

    "I can't say I like him, no. I don't like him. You know when he's not trying to be Hulk Hogan and saying all this disrespectful stuff and classless stuff. He can be a pretty civil person. So, I like...I have respect for who Chael is when he's not at work."

    On what advantage Sonnen may have in the fight:

    "His advantage in this fight is he's really good at promoting. He's a great talker. He is really good with words. But even that's not legit. The quotes he uses have been recited over and over again and the interview, they've probably never heard the line, so they appreciate the originality. But they're not original when you've been around him six weeks. He says the same thing all the time. It's well rehearsed."

    Was Chael's statement that he makes more than Jones and Anderson Silva accurate?

    "Chael Sonnen has..he's like a politician. He will say whatever he has to to get ahead of the game. And...what I'm trying to get at is Chael, he makes up these outlandish statements that aren't true. And he's convinced this whole group of individuals who call themselves Team Darkside to believe these things. But he does not make more than me. I'm not doing it for the money, but that's 1000% not true."

    A few quotes on if Jon is "annoyed" by dealing with Sonnen at this point:

    "It's just played out."

    "I think he does drugs..I don't know. I don't know. He just seems crazy, he just keeps going with it."

    "I'm an actual winner. When you win your competition, there's a certain amount of grace you need to carry."

    LeBatard asked Jones why he apologized for the steroid cheat comments:

    "I had no evidence to prove that Chael Sonnen did steroids throughout his prime. You know? And I know a lot of guys, not personally, but I know a lot of guys are probably doing it. And I think it's a shame. Especially for parents that have athletes. It ruins the code, the honor code. It ruins everything. It's not right. It's just not right. And I had a feeling through hearing stories throughout the grapevine that Chael is a guy who has secretly done steroids throughout his career. You look at some of his earlier fights and some fights he had extraordinary muscle tone and other fights he just didn't. And I'd also heard that when you do steroids when you're younger...in your early years, you don't produce testosterone naturally. Which hints to Testosterone Replacement Therapy. So I came up with the conclusion that he had done steroids, made lots of money and he does it now to continue making lots of money. Which isn't fair, it cheats the cycle of life, the circle of life. The next guy needs his turn to be great but...like if I did steroids now? I'd be a beast. And then I do steroids five years from now? I'd still be a beast. It's not fair. I'm stealing all the glory. So I think it's not fair. When you get old, you need to step aside and let the next kid that's working his tail off be great.

    So, to answer your question, I had no concrete evidence to prove that he had done steroids so I shouldn't make that allegation. And, so I appologized."

    And, finally, Jones was asked if he thought Sonnen was on steroids for the first Silva fight:

    "I can't prove it..."


    *So Jones apologizes for making those claims yet runs his mouth about them again on national tv?

    Reminds me of his DUI apology letter that started out with "Dear Haters,"...

    I know your more then likely just making light of his comment, but I'm just going to throw this out anyways, it was a video interview for a tv show
