Jon Jones is one of the most popular fighters in the history of the UFC. For the past couple of months, Jones had been gunning for Francis Ngannou’s UFC Heavyweight Championship, even if it seems pointless right now.
Back in 2019, Jon Jones successfully defended his light heavyweight belt against Anthony Smith via unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 235. Now it seems there is a serious accusation made against him.
While speaking on The Jenna Ben Show , Anthony Smith was asked about Jon Jones. Smith accused Jon Jones of failing every drug test before their UFC 235 bout.
“He does this well, he does that well, he was suspended for this, but I never get into his drug test bulls***,” Smith said. “I never even told anyone Jon failed every drug test the entire week leading up to our fight. Every single drug test. I never brought it up one time in any interview, in any media thing, nothing. The commission called me every day to let me know he was still failing his drug tests. I never said anything, I let it be because I was just focused on myself and always believed that if you just focus on yourself you’re going to be that much more successful.”
It is to be noted that Jones was not flagged for failing a drug test for UFC 235. So this is certainly a serious accusation made against him. We will have to see if Jon Jones decides to respond to the accusation or not.
