Jon Jones switches Twitter photo to crying Michael Jordan meme following USADA suspension

New, comments

Jon Jones might be the biggest troll in the UFC roster.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion changed his Twitter profile photo on Tuesday to a picture of himself posing with his world title. But instead of Jones' head, a massive head of a crying Michael Jordan sits at the top of the 29-year-old's 6-foot-4 frame.

This recent update in Twitter aesthetics comes after Jones' USADA suspension on Monday. 'Bones' received a full ban on his doping case, suspending him from competition for a year. This year-long ban is effective from July, the date he tested positive for the banned substances.

The full ban by USADA is not due to Jones being a drug cheat, but due to his recklessness for taking contaminated sexual-performance pills without making sure that the product was allowed under the UFC's anti-doping policy and the WADA Code. Jones still awaits a suspension and fine from the Nevada Athletic Commission.
