Jon Jones: 'Everyone knows Chael Sonnen has done steroids throughout his whole career'By Chris Hall on Apr 16 2013, 10:58p  @Chris81203 28

Less than two weeks before his UFC 159 title defense, Jones appeared on UFC Tonight to talk about his upcoming fight against Sonnen. During that interview, the LHW champ accused Sonnen of having used steroids during his whole career.

Coming up in just a week and a half, UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones will have the chance to defend his title against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159. The odd matchmaking decision came after Jones refused to fight Sonnen on 8 days' notice when his scheduled opponent for UFC 151 dropped out, resulting in the events' cancellation. Instead, Jones tapped out Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 then went on to coach opposite Sonnen in the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter.

The build up to the fight has featured a lot of trash talk coming from Sonnen in his usual over-the-top way. Jones has been more reserved, though he levied a pretty hefty accusation at Chael on Tuesday's episode of UFC Tonight:

Quote:
People know that Chael Sonnen has done steroids throughout his whole career and that's probably why his testosterone is low now. I don't think that is the heart or the attitude of a champion, so that's what I meant when I said he lacks champion's soul.
Following Sonnen's first loss to Middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 117, it was revealed that he suffered from hypogonadism. To combat the low testosterone levels caused by his condition Sonnen has been approved to compete while using Testosterone Replacement Therapy in every fight he's had since. According to Sonnen, the condition was caused by him not going through puberty normally.

As far as the fight is concerned, Jones doesn't seem worried about Sonnen posing a threat to him inside the Octagon:

Quote:
I'm really not concerned with too many of Chael's gifts. Chael is an awesome fighter, he has pretty good boxing, he loves wrestling and he's been really successful with his wrestling. He has really good ground-and-pound. I've just familiarized myself with the whole thing and I'm really comfortable with what I'm getting ready to face. I wouldn't say any of it really concerns me. I'm just ready to go out there, react, be instinctual, do my best and try to do what I do.

Bring your best. I hope you're having a great camp and I hope you're healthy and I'm excited for this awesome challenge.
The two will face off on April 27 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. If Jones beats Sonnen, it will mark his 5th title defense, tying him with Tito Ortiz for most defenses of the 205 lb. belt.

He has two half-testicles.


But seriously, as much as I like to rib Chael and his Sonnites, is it not true that heavy training from a young age can also affect your testosterone when you get older? Ive seen this suggested many times but never really with any solid evidence.

If it is true, then its difficult to assume 100% that Chaels condition is down to steroid use. Although that wont stop me...

Hard core weight cutting (like wrestling) from a young age can have a hell of an effect on your body. I wouldn't be surprised if low testosterone levels aren't one of them. But that's not as fun as a "DUH" post. So continue.

It MAY be POSSIBLE, though not proven. It is also possible for lightning to strike the same guy 50 times.

It is also possible that Chael is really the unluckiest sod in the world, with everyone out for him framing him for mortgage fraud, xenophobia, false comments etc.

Which is why Jones said "probably", so people are free to believe the poor sod with lightening striking him 50 times explanation if they are truly so inclined. Because he seems to be the victim of all these conditions and prosecutions on sheer bad luck, when so many other hardcore wrestlers like Cain, Askren, Cormier etc. and thousands of other wrestlers from an early age in the UFC and outside that don't have it.

It's also unfortunate that he messes up his juice er.. medication sometimes and goes oh ... 3-4 times the mandated limit and 16 times the normal male limit. But again, poor unfortunate things keep happening to this guy. When will he ever catch a break?!! Leave him alone! Leave Sonnen alone!!

It also MAY be POSSIBLE that Sonnen didn't went through normal puperty like he claims, so that he has had that low testosterone issue since his youth AND YET, even with that genetic disadvantage and lack of male growth hormone, became a monster wrestler who even became an Olympic alternate, beating opponents that were genetically much more favored...

...I keep my doubts though...
