    With all the craziness swirling over his recent failed tests and the suggestion of tainted supplements I started to think more about what the Jackson camp had suggested about someone tainting maybe a drink or food for Jones. Since no one has been really talking about this I've been seeing more and more how this would be a perfect plan for someone. I believe that this is actually a far more likely scenario other than tainted supplements considering how old this PED is in the realm of sports.

    I personally believe that since he's sleazy enough to have been caught cheating more than once now I'm not speculating that he's innocent of the doping allegations. I just wonder that if you were Jones, and he actually didn't knowingly cheat, what thoughts would you be having about your MMA future?

    Jones is a very polarizing figure when it comes to MMA (putting it lightly) so it's only expected that he probably has a few enemies that he's not aware of in his camp. I believe this is the most likely scenario if he has people who were on his side once, since it's kinda already happened in the past with previous training partners like Rashad Evans, who are still with him and hate him even though they train out of the same team...enough to go refill a water bottle for him and slip in some oral turilabol during fight week?

    If that was the case then it's obviously someone close enough to Jones to be a significant part of his team to gain his trust and access to him personally.

    Would you be looking for a team change? Where do you think Jones would fair off with best?

    I think he would fair off the best in jail - where everyone else on this board would be if we got caught doing what he has historically done.

    Look man i appreciate the effort of this post. But its way to hypothetical to say his drink was spiked and where should he go if it was.

    Jones has lost his spark and will always have an asterisk next to his name. He will not be brought up in GOAT discussions anymore unless it is by ignorant fans.

    But there's this tiny thing of Jones fucking up in private too, such as driving drunk, doing coke, hit and runs, and so on and so forth.

    Kinda makes it implausible to believe he's innocent, right?

    Actually makes it more plausible, since he fucks up a lot. He didnt intend to run over the lady.

    Huge shame all round. Beating DC again cemented him as the greatest.

    All ruined.

    The origin of this idea is from the likely culprits

    It is a standard PR/lawyer move where doubt is repeatedly injected into the conversation like fake tit-filler

    Not going to work and amateurish as hell. You need a real talent to push a lie like this and they can't afford Hill&Knowlton

    His legacy was tainted even prior to the roiding, but that cemented it for sure.
    That being said, I honestly don't give a fuck about his cocaine habit, it's not particularly relevant to him as a fighter.

    I am afraid he is the Barry Bonds of MMA. I love watching Jones fight almost more than any other fighter, so it is very sad to me. Especially now when UFC is lacking star power.

    Jones gets his stuff from Mexico, so occasionally the quality isn't there. He needs to go to a Balco-like spot in the US that has the stuff that can get you to pass the tests.

    1 ice skater had another ice skater's knee bashed in so she couldn't compete.

    Even if the possibility is 00.25% there's still a chance that something out of a mystery, thriller happened.

    I myself though believe he's on and has been on the juice. That's my personal belief.

    I don't really see how he could ever come back and be thought of in the same way.

    If i'm honest the best thing he could probably do now is go WWE and have a big feud with Brock. The man's got to make money some how.

    Being a DC fan i still think the whole thing is so sad i got my head around that Jon was the better man and then boom busted again..
