Jones has since failed two drug tests and is still awaiting punishment from USADA for a failed test in line with UFC 214.
The Swedish fighter has since taken to Twitter to accuse Jones of using the “good stuff” during their battle, leading to Jones firing back on social media:
-- coming from u man.. being tough is going true the champ rounds without the “good stuff” -- now step up and I’ll show u!!— Alexander Gustafsson (@AlexTheMauler) April 24, 2018
Brilliant come back, just what I expected from you. I guess shogun, rampage, Bader etc. could all use the same excuse now too. Do you look yourself in the mirror and call yourself champ now that “I cheated”— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 24, 2018
Please tell me you convinced yourself that I was on steroids during our fight -- please tell me you convinced yourself I was ever on steroids--— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 24, 2018
The only “good stuff” I used to send you packing was my big old American balls. Try spending a little more time here, maybe you’ll learn a thing or two— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 24, 2018
If Gustafsson achieved anything during his latest Twitter feud, it was that the fighter was finally able to get longtime rivals Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones to agree on something.
I don’t even like DC and I enjoyed this. Too funny -- Alex bring all your tough guy shit to the championship rounds next time ---- https://t.co/CSHLq7HlB2— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 24, 2018
