As the MMA world still reacts to the news that Jon Jones has been stripped of the UFC’s light-heavyweight crown, “Bones” is denying that he ever used steroids.

On Wednesday the UFC announced that Daniel Cormier’s been reinstated as the 205 champion, as a result of the California State Athletic Commission overturning Jones’ July 29th win over Cormier. The CSAC made that move, after it reported Jones’ B sample from UFC 214 tested positive for the anabolic steroid, Turinabol.

Jones hasn’t publicly relayed much about his latest USADA flag recently, but on Thursday, he tweeted out this comment:

The now former champion is facing a suspension which could be as long as four years, if he’s unable to launch a successful appeal.
