Jon Jones Disrespectfully Responds To Reporter After Asking Him About Steroids

Jon Jones found himself bullying a reporter after she asked the UFC fighter why he recently tested positive in a drug test.

During a press conference for the upcoming UFC 232, the 31-year-old American had no intention of answering the question and only had one thing to say: “Next question, please. Thank you.”

The crowd erupted in the room, leaving reporter Izabelle Kostic to turn to UFC president Dana White and ask him why Bones had not received a “two-year suspension like Frank Mir.”

Before White could hear the question again — later claiming that he doesn’t understand her question — Jones once again chimed in and demanded that he wanted “better questions, better journalism.”

He also told her that she ‘sucks,’ which is probably not doing him any favours in repairing his image in the public eye.

In October, SPORTbible reported that Jones would return to the octagon for a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson.

Earlier this week, White revealed that UFC 232 had been moved from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to California after Jones’ recent drug test results.

“Today, Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) executive director Bob Bennett announced that, in consultation with NSAC commission chair Anthony Marnell III, unarmed combatant Jon Jones will be allowed to withdraw his pending application for licensure, which was intended to clear him to fight in a major contest in Nevada later this month,” reads NSAC’s statement.

“After extensive analysis of Mr Jones’ prior 18 months of USADA in- and out-of-competition anti-doping drug-testing results, director Bennett, chair Marnell and Mr Jones agree that he will appear at an evidentiary hearing in January.

“This will allow for a measured, thoughtful and comprehensive discussion of his anti-doping testing protocol and results and provide an opportunity for the NSAC to determine the appropriate path forward for him in Nevada. We look forward to this hearing.”

UFC 232 will be held on 30th December.

Will Jones beat Gustafsson?
