Watch: Chael Sonnen Tells Surreal Story Of Jon Jones Hiding In Gym To Avoid Drug Testers

It's been a bad, bad week for Jon Jones.

Yanked from the UFC 200 card due to a potential failed drugs test ahead of what was supposed to be the reunification of the light heavyweight title and his return to the top of the sport, Jones then cried as he faced the media not knowing what the future would hold in store for him.

And a story told by Chael Sonnen on the Joe Rogan Experience doesn't do much to make Jones sound better. The hugely entertaining former UFC fighter, who himself was popped for PEDs, was a guest on Rogan's podcast and amongst several highly entertaining stories he told about the time when Jon Jones saw USADA testers arriving at his gym.


With Jones being the only fighter in the gym at the time, he knew he was about to be tested, but only if they could find him, so he hit under the gym's octagon for between six to eight hours.

That is crazy.

Sonnen had earlier in the show explained the ridiculous circumstances surrounding Wanderlei Silva's lifetime ban which made USADA out to look like an utterly unreasonable organisation, but at that time they could only test you if they found you, so Jon Jones used this to his advantage.


This story was after Sonnen had revealed that estrogen blockers were the reason for Jones' positive test, and you can see that below in the full, and very enjoyable, episode below.
