Jon Jones stunned the world in the run up to UFC 200 when it was revealed that he had given a positive test to USADA during his training for his fight with Daniel Cormier.

A rueful Dana White announced the news in a press conference, with Cormier having to take on Anderson Silva in little more than an exhibition bout as Jones has a two-year suspension to look forward to.

It has now been revealed that Jones was banned for taking two estrogen blockers, and the man himself has blamed his own ignorance for that.

Jones took to social media today to answer some questions from obviously disappointed fans, who were looking forward to seeing him take on Cormier for the light heavyweight title in what was arguably the biggest fight of the year.

According to Jones, he has already sent whatever products/supplements he was taking at the time to a lab for testing. 

The best pound-for-pound fighter in the world then added that

Despite a potential two-year ban looming over his head, Jones seems to remain of the belief that he will eventually be cleared of all this and won't have to serve a suspension. 

Jones may still profess his innocence, but when the drugs he's been popped for taking are notably taken for either masking testosterone usage and dealing with the side effects of Testosterone Replacement Therapy, he doesn't really have a leg to stand on.
