Jon Jones apologizes for accusing Chael Sonnen of being a 'career-long steroid user'   [View Full Version]

Earlier this week, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones appeared on UFC Tonight to preview his upcoming UFC 159 title defense against fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 coach Chael Sonnen, which headlines the April 27, 2013 pay-per-view (PPV) event from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

This is what he said.

"Chael Sonnen is a guy who has done steroids throughout his whole career. It's probably the reason his testosterone is low now."

Interesting observation from a guy who said he wasn't going to talk any trash leading up to the fight and even took a vow of silence during last weekend's TUF 17 Finale. See a video of his appearance, which also includes comments about Sonnen's "championship soul" right here.

Apparently he's had a change of heart, or perhaps a stern talking-to from someone in the booth, according to his recent Twitter post.

"I had no right to accuse chael of being a career long steroid user I apologize. See what had happened was...."

Sonnen, who reportedly suffers from hypogonadism, was bagged and tagged by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) back in August 2010 for improperly disclosing his testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) prior to his first fight against Anderson Silva in Oakland.

Why say it, if your just going to take it back

It sounds like a Yessir kind of situation.

This kid has to be clueless. If your going to throw out any old BS that may or may not be true just stand behind it.

Jon tattled to Dana and Dana said no one like a tattle tail.

You're such a douche face! Okay sorry you're not let's be friends

Actually with better phrasing it sounds kind of like something from "The Real Housewives"
