Despite being on the sidelines due to a potential anti-doping violation, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones put two top light heavyweight contenders on notice via Twitter.

Jones went on a rant and targeted current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier as well as Anthony Johnson, who are both set to headline UFC 206 on December 10.

“Can’t wait to get back and slap one of these light heavyweights,” Jones tweeted on Wednesday night. “even on the sidelines I’m more relevant than anyone in that division. You boys know when we all retire you will just be known as one of my contenders,” he wrote. “Easy for y’all to talk that shit when daddy ain’t home”

Jones didn’t stop there as then he sent numerous tweets about the two fighters.

Jones would then retweet things about Johnson’s past which includes allegations of domestic violence.

Jones was pulled out of UFC 200 because of a potential anti-doping violation. Jones was supposed to fight Cormier for the light heavyweight title at the event. The Nevada State Athletic Commission confirmed that Jones tested positive for hydroxy-clomiphene, “an anti-estrogenic agent” and “letrozole metabolite,” an “aromatase inhibitor.” Estrogen blockers can potentially act in tandem with performance-enhancers by helping to mitigate their side effects. It will be interesting to see when Jones can return to the world famous octagon.
