Former UFC light heavyweight champion and former pound-for-pound #1 fighter, Jon ‘Bones’ Jones (22-1-1NC MMA, 16-1-1NC UFC) will make his much-anticipated return to take on former two-time title challenger Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) at UFC 232 on December 29.

However the foul mouthed bad blood between Jones and his arch rival double champ Daniel Cormier still prevails. Jones was tested positive for the steroid Turinabol in an in-competition drug test before his rematch against Cormier at UFC 214 last year. Jones who defeated Cormier via TKO in the third round, was stripped off the title and Cormier was named as the undisputed champ with immediate effect.

Speaking in an interview on the Jim Rome podcast, Cormier addressed Jones’ failed drug test.

“My deal’s this, I never once said he didn’t win the fight. I’ve never said that. Even when people would tell me ‘no you didn’t get a fair shake, it’s not cool, he cheated’, I said the guy won the fights,” Cormier said. “Cause I’ve always said, I’m sure he’s not the only guy I’ve ever fought who’s on steroids. I’ve always said that. I’ve been very open about that but when you say a pinch of salt — why was the pinch of salt there?”

Jones obviously didn’t go along well with the statements of the double champ as he took to Twitter to reply. (via Twitter):

Jones claimed that he believes Conor McGregor was the real double champ and not Cormier. (via Twitter):
