Jon Jones probably knew what he was getting himself into when he asked for suggestions for his UFC 232 walkout song. But he did it anyway.
The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion has had a hell of a week, beginning with the report of an abnormal drug test that found a trace amount of turinabol in his system. As a result of the "atypical finding," the Nevada State Athletic Commission would not license Jones to fight Alexander Gustafsson this weekend at UFC 232. Instead of canceling the fight, UFC moved the event to Los Angeles in order to preserve their main event. Many fighters were upset with the UFC's decision. You can view their reactions here.
Jones was active on social media following the report of his abnormal drug test and UFC moving the event, getting into a war of words with old rival Daniel Cormier and Gustafsson. Wanting to keep his social media momentum going, Jones asked fans for possible walkout songs he could use this Saturday.
