Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recently got sentenced to a 15-months suspension by USADA. Jon Jones is now eligible to make his octagon return fifteen months after failing the second drug test at UFC 214 in his fight against Daniel Cormier. Jon Jones’s samples had tested positive for Turinabol, a banned substance.
However, he is all set to make a comeback on Dec. 29 at UFC 232, Where he is scheduled to fight Alexander Gustafsson at the T-Mobile Arena in a rematch.
Jon Jones firstly apologized to the New York crowd for not fighting this weekend, and confirmed while there were initial talks to fight at UFC 230, he wasn’t ready to get back in the Octagon so soon.
Both Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson were present at UFC 232 presser and Alexander Gustafsson was asked by media reporter, who was the tougher fight, Jones or DC? To which he said Jones was the tougher fight than DC.
Alexander Gustafsson showed up for a press conference and ended up getting a "psychological evaluation," courtesy of Jon Jones. This could get fun.

To which Jones was quick to fire back, he listed every opponent that’s defeated Gustafsson in the cage, in what he called a “psychological evaluation.”
“Did you beat DC as well? … What about Anthony Johnson, did you beat him? … What about Phil Davis, did you beat him too?”
Who do you think won the war of words here? Jones or Gustafsson?
