American light heavyweight Jon Jones is set to fight Swede Alexander Gustaffson despite testing positive for a small amount of a prohibited anabolic steroid earlier in December. Apart from a ritual stand-off between the two fighters, their pre-fight presser of the Ultimate Fighting Championship has been marked by a showdown of another kind.
How dumb do you have to be to not expect drugs to be brought up at a Jon Jones presser?! It would have been like going to Khabib Conor one and not asking about bus – it’s the ONLY question

Just watched the #UFC232 presser & Im absolutely disgusted at the treatment of the female journalist asking legit questions regarding Jones & his repeated PED offenses. @JonnyBones, @danawhite & the other crazies in attendance should be ashamed for their actions. How very telling

How @JonnyBones spoke to Izabelle Kostic from @kimurasweden at the #UFC232 presser was disgusting, he’s a joke with zero class. @ufc and @danawhite should be embarrassed they keep standing by this extremely talented but twat of an individual. @arielhelwani thoughts?

All-time worst presser and that is saying something… Jon Jones and Dana White come off even dirtier and slimier than they did before it started… Which is impressive… #UFC232
