    Damn its the 2nd time Jones DQ'd himself. At least it sets up the third fight if Jones can hire a driver and stay away from PEDs.

    Total fail by the ufc.

    We all just watched him get put to sleep. Whether they call it a no contest and whatever drugs Jones did, does not overshadow what happened

    I didn't even think he was fighting again, now he's the current LHW champ

    He lost a belt fighting someone who didn't fight according to the rules of the fight. So the fight is a 'no contest', ie. it didn't happen. So since the fight didn't happen according to the rules, it doesn't count and he didn't lose.

    Beats being former powder and needle champ. Cormier still has his career the ability to fight over tbe next 2-4uears if he chooses.
    THREE times... regular title, interim, regular title.

    GOAT Status Unlocked

    By someone who violated the terms of engagement therefore the engaging never happened in the first place.

    All anybody can do is speculate using the best information we have available. Arguing semantics and logic in light of the circumstances is pretty weak, tbh.

    1. DC and Rumble fought twice. The outcomes were identical. I am as certain as can be that the extra 1.2lb? was not a factor. Cheating or not.
    2. DC and Jones fought twice. The outcomes were much different. One was a close decision win for Jones the other a KO win by Jones.
    Jones has been popped twice for PED related offenses. The first time was preparing for the rematch with DC. The second was immediately after the rematch, that had to be rescheduled due to Jones serving a 1 year suspension.

    This means, imo, that Jones was so certain that he could not defeat DC without PEDs that he was willing to risk his entire career. Twice.
    If Jones didn't think he could do it, why should anybody else? Now we have to speculate on how many times he wasn't caught if he was so brazen to cheat after already being suspended for cheating. His entire career is suspect as far as I'm concerned.

    He got 1m base vs jones plus ppv as the champ. I would take the belt back as well at 38 and keep getting those paydays and wouldnt give a fuck if some of you pathetic losers called me the paper champ.

    I'm one of the biggest Jones apologists out there but this is the right thing to do. The few people saying no are clueless.

    Paper.
    Everyone are on steroids, USADA just give the advantages to more clever and complicated drug-design using. And DC, 40 years old former olimpian with inhuman cardio (with such difficult weight cutting), a lot of injuries, granite chin, recovery, amazing strenght - is one of the first candidates to being juiced. Plus his suspect testosterone levels prior to the first fight. But yes, he is clean, haha.
    Anybody is really think that both fights would be such close with Jon being on it and DC not? Naive.
    My take on UFC 214: Jon, like DC, like any other fighter used steroids, but good ones and cleverly, so they would detect it. But 2 days prior to fight he had a injury (Wink said about it), so he need very fast recovery and he used such dump drug, he hadnt other choice.
    Jones is the first really GOAT fighter (Andesron was after prime) who caught with USADA, so maybe it will lead to deleting USADA from UFC.Dana likely regrets that introduce it. In other sports such strict testing isnt there (inboxing too). Could you imagine USADA tests in boxing, NBA? They are all on it/ So why in UFC?
    Jones for me is more likely Carl Lewis that Lance. Great fighter who got caught. And others didnot get caught.

    Not a DC fan at all, but he's the legit champ at this point.

    I guess Woodley is a paper champ.

    I guess Frank Shamrock is still the LHW champion so even if Jones didn't fuck up, Jones was never really the champion too. DC did what a real man and competitor does, compete clean. Jones fucked it up for himself.
