Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones didn’t hold anything back on social media recently in addressing comments made by Georges St-Pierre.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, St-Pierre declared that any fighter who has tested positive for a banned substance should not be included in the conversation for the greatest of all-time. That would include Jones, who has popped multiple times now.
“It sucks when you have to hear someone you’ve always shown respect to sit and talk foolishness. But that’s the nature of the game these days.
Saying steroids change more than physical performance. “Make you more creative and hungry”. Do you know how crazy that sounds? I guess brain damage is real out here.
Saying PED metabolites threw a kick? Come on man. It’s called training and identifying a weakness. So much in fact I told him to his face it was coming and then landed it. That’s called execution.
How about rather than campaigning for GOAT status you get in there and dominate your next fight. I’ve had nothing but respect for you over all these years. Don’t change that now. You’re better than this.”
