    Apparently fight week is July 6-11 and although Jones suspension ends around July 2nd, he then has to re-apply for his fighting license which will likely take more than a week

    What happened to the mandatory minimum of 3 month drug testing before a fighter is allowed to re-enter competition after a suspension or retirement ?

    Isn't that only if you come out of the testing program for some reason? I think Jones is still subject to random testing. Didn't some other fighter recently get busted by a test, while they were already serving a suspension?

    I'm pretty sure Jones hasn't been tested since the suspension or his lawyer team would be disclosing how great his results were every damn time , as some kind of after-the-fact proof of his innocent .

    Makes sense. Plus if Jones fucks up again. Would be two International Fight Weeks in a row.

    Ideally they get GSP vs Bisping. But if that does not happen like they seem to think it won't. Not sure what they can do.

    thanks. that's quite reasonable.

    so why Dana's song and dance about fighting DC in July, "if he wants it"?
