Daniel Cormier isn’t letting Jon Jones off the hook.

Earlier this week, Ultimate Fighting Championship was forced to move UFC 232 from Las Vegas to California after it was revealed that Jon Jones had tested positive for trace amounts of the anabolic steroid Turinabol.

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) ruled that those trace amounts of Turinabol were the leftovers of Jones’ previously failed drug test from July 2017, when the former light heavyweight champion tested positive for the same banned substance. This time, however, ‘Bones’ has got away scot-free and will rematch Alexander Gustafsson for the vacant light heavyweight championship this weekend at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

In his latest Instagram post, arch rival ‘DC’ ripped Jones and UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky for trying to sweep his latest failed drug test under the rug, citing Lance Armstrong’s recent criticism of the case.

“This guy Jon Jones is such a dirt bag cheater that even Lance Armstrong is weighing in lol. Lance is like where the fuck was Jeff when I was going through this shit lol. And boy how did Jones turn Jeff Novitzky into his old lady. This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen. And now people sending me clips of this dude being arrogant at a press conference. That is one crazy negro! Jeff Novitsky-Jones lmao,” Cormier posted on social media.

Armstrong, a former cycling world champion, was formerly investigated by Novitzky and later admitted to use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Despite the controversy, Jones will still go on to face Gustafsson in the UFC 232 main event. The pay-per-view extravaganza takes place this Saturday, Dec. 29 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
