On Tuesday night’s edition of Fuel TV’s UFC Tonight, Jon Jones was discussing, with Co-host Dominick Cruz, a recent quote from Jones claiming Sonnen lacks the soul of a champion. That is when Jones made his accusation.

“Chael Sonnen’s a guy who, people know he’s been on steroids throughout his whole career. That’s probaby why his testosterone level is low now. I don’t think that’s the heart and attitude of a champion. So that’s what I meant when I said he lacks championship soul.”

Chael Sonnen has never tested positive for exogenous testosterone in his entire fight career. Although he did test positive for elevated testosterone levels during his fight with Anderson Silva at UFC 117.  It was never determined if this was due to supplementation or not.

Jones appears to be playing Chael’s game. Will he be able to get in Sonnen’s head?

    Very different Jones from the one we saw Saturday night who wouldn’t even look at Sonnen. He thinks he’s just going to steamroll Chael, that won’t happen. The one thing that saved Anderson was his Jiu-Jitsu, and Jones is like a dead fish on his back.

  • Jon Jones will steamroll Chael. Chael won’t be able to get inside the reach of Jon. Also Chael isn’t going to be able to take Jon down at will like he did with Silva cause Jon is a great wrestler as well and he’s great at using his reach advantage to keep people to the outside.
