    If Jon Jones was wrongly strpiped of his LHW title which he won by defeating Daniel Cormier shouldn't he get his title back?

    Whether you believe Jones or not, the USADA has ruled and stated that Jon Jones didn't do anything wrong. Thus, he was wrongly stripped of the title and should get it back.

    Agree/Disagree?

    USADA ruled that it was unintentional, he still tested positive therefore the result has to be overturned.

    No, the illegal substance was still in his body. It is his responsibility to follow the rules whether he knew or not.

    Following the logic of the arbitral award, he should get his belt back.

    "7.17 I find that all of the evidence available to me leads me to conclude that the violation was not intended nor could it have enhanced the Athlete's performance. There was absolutely no intention to use Prohibited Substances on the part of the Athlete. Other factores referred to in the definition of fault include the perceived level of risk and the level of care and investigation that should have been exercised in relation to the perceived level of risk. In that respect, the Athlete took considerable additional steps outlined above in the Evidence to try and ensure that he never had another positive test for a Prohibited Substance while using supplements. He assumed incorrectly that he was using USADA approved supplements. The fact is that USADA lists supplements highly likely to be contaminated but does not ever approve supplements. The Athlete or his representatives ought to have recognized that mistaken assumption. This has to be part of his acceptance of a degree of Fault as stipulated in the Agreement."

    The arbitral award concluded his performance wasn't enhanced.

    No the NC should stand. If the NC gets changed back to a win and Jones regains his title then the circus will be in full swing. Might as well change the name of the company to Ultimate Fighting Entertainment.

    That’s no true. USADA ruled that he did something wrong and recommended a 2.5 year sentence. It was reduced because of his snitching and because the arbitrator personally deemed Jones wasn’t at egregious fault (though he did write that Jones had some fault).

    nope he wasn't wrongly stripped.

    finding another loop hole doesn't mean he was cleared.

    How was it wrongly stripped?
    He broke the rules. He was suspended for it.

    Did he or did he not have PED's in his system on fight night?

    Yes

    In fact every title defense DC's made since then should be counted on Jones' record as well. So he should be 24-1 with his latest wins being over DC and Volkan.

    The guy roids up snorts coke injects viagra runs over pregnant women and then flees the scene.

    My tolerance for bullshit ended a bit ago. Let him fight bears in Siberia, real or hairy gay men, makes no difference.
