Following the announcement that Jon Jones was flagged by USADA for a potential doping violation, his former opponent Ovince St. Preux, is looking for answers.

St. Preux took to Facebook this week to ask Jones for clarification on when he started using PEDs.

"When did you start taking PEDS Jon?" he writes. "I wanted to fight the best fighter in the world, but I did not sign up to fight a cheater. So, be a stand-up person, tell us all the truth."

St. Preux faced Jones at UFC 197 when Daniel Cormier backed out due to an injury. He went all five rounds with Jones who was making his return to the UFC after being suspended following legal issues. Jones ended up with the win, via unanimous decision and was awarded the interim title.

This fight took place April 23, Jones was tested less than two months later and was flagged following those results.

He was cited for Hydroxy-Clomiphene and Letrozole Metabolite which are both markers for someone coming off a steroid cycle.

"We all know you were on PEDS because you got caught taking PCT drugs," he wrote. "Just tell the world the truth."

Jones has been temporarily suspended pending investigation.
